Following the January 2011 release of the first live action Gantz film, its sequel GANTZ II: Perfect Answer came out to theaters in Japan just three months later.
While fans of the anime series of which these movies were adapted from were vocal about the first Gantz live-action movie coming up short compared to its hyper-violent and morally provocative anime and manga counterparts, the sequel has been guaranteed to receive as much attention as the first movie did, if for no other reason than that Gantz 1 left the story in a major cliffhanger.
Boasting the same cast of young attractive Japanese stars and the same flashy production budget, while also increasing the length of the movie to 150 minutes, GANTZ II is much anticipated by fans for a North American and Europe release.
STORY: Five months have passed and Kurono is closing in on getting his 100 points. And in between missions, GANTZ allows him to assume a normal life, where Tae (Yoshitaka Yuriko) is desperate to start a relationship but understands Kato's "disappearance" has him pre-occupied. Meanwhile, a small black orb appears and assigns murderous missions to a former popstar, and a detective (Yamada Takayuki) investigates numerous sightings of recently deceased members of the public, including Kato. However, when a teammate hits 100 points and opts to resurrect Kato, they realize an alien imposter has adopted Kato's form and is also hunting for the black orb as well.
