Impressive animation and a rather good adaptation overall
20 February 2017 | by Florent DIESee all my reviews

This is one of the best manga adaptation I've seen, right after Akira and Ghost in the Shell (Mamoru Oshii's version). Well, that might be a bold statement since Gantz: O doesn't have the depth of these two, but it's a rather good adaptation of a segment of Hiroya Oku's manga, quite entertaining, and very, very well made. The motion capture is impressive, the best I've seen so far in this kind of production and leaves far behind the various declensions of Final Fantasy, Halo, or resident Evil (the animated ones). It's so good that I often had the impression to be watching live actors. The facial expressions are perfect, down to the glittering eyes that gives these animated characters the sparkle of life that's often missing in Asian CGI animation. No doubt this movie will be a reference for future productions of that type. Otherwise, just an advice, don't look away or be distracted in the five last minutes or you might be baffled by what's going on (I had to watch the end twice because someone talked to me at the worst moment and I missed the one sentence that was the key to it all).
