Five months have passed since the events of the first film. In the meantime, a team has formed itself alongside Kei and Suzuki. But odd things are starting to happen; a small black sphere has appeared, battles are dragging innocent people into the fight, and there's a group of people who is tracking down the room that contains GANTZ. But most importantly, Katou is back, though no one has revived him. GANTZ seems to be in a rush, and only one person knows why that might be. The last target comes as a shock. What is GANTZ's purpose behind this all?
The story of this movie starts where the first Gantz film ended; after Katou's death Kei tries to do everything he can to collect 100 points and be able to bring his friend back. He also spends a lot of time at Katou's place and tries to support the boy's brother, Ayumu, to whom he told his brother is away because of work. But then, when Katou suddenly appears, without a single bruise or scare, Kei gets confused; how can Katou still be alive?
Anyone who says this movie doesn't answer all the questions is either lying or should re-watch the movie!
At some points it can seem confusing, and there are loads of new things in this one that weren't even mentioned in the first movie, but for me, it answered everything. Okay, except for maybe one thing and that is where those aliens came from and why? But really, everything else was perfectly answered.
The idea of this movie (just like the first one's) is excellent, and even though it was a bit brutal and bloody at same points, it wasn't more violent than needed. Some deaths may look pointless, but in the end you will understand everything!
I loved the relationships between Kei and Katou, Katou and Ayumu, and Kei and Tae. I also loved Nishi's actor's play, and Ayumu's character and the actor's play. They were amazing.
The ending was also a masterpiece! When Kei died I was like 'what the hell, that can't happen, Kei was the best fighter, and anyway, he doesn't deserve this, what is happening and why?', but then, when seeing those last scenes about how people continue their lives and so, it became so heart-breaking and heart-warming at the same time. Kei-chan saved everyone, and that last message of his; "I wish you happiness." was like the sweetest thing ever. He made this whole thing stop, and made loads of people happy by giving their lives back.
He promised that there won't be any more fights like that, no more people will be brought to that room, and he really 'fights' for that.
This movie (or these two movies if we count Gantz and Perfect Answer together) are real masterpieces with amazing storyline, talented actors and actresses, great effects, and hard-working staff as a whole. It is visible that everyone did their best for these movies to be as perfect as possible, and it was a huge success.
Also, these movies, even if it doesn't seem like that, can actually teach us how important a friendship is, how important our lives are, how important it is to spend time with those we love, to tell them we love them...
...before it will be too late.
Recommended to everyone who is not afraid of a small amount of (or maybe just a little bit more) blood and violence in order for something more important. I also recommend watching it at night in a dark room - believe me, it has a better effect like that than if you would watch it during daytime with sunlight breaking through your windows. (;
Perfect Answer - The Perfect Answer to all our questions?
Unfortunately not. But the movie does not fail to entertain anyway, with both action and tear-jerking moments likewise. The acting of both Matsuken and Nino gets even more dramatic in Part 2 and the co-stars do a great job again.
Atmosphere-wise, Part 2 can't really keep up with Part 1, but the movie at least answers SOME of the questions from the first part.
If you did like the first part, you will probably like the second part as well. Be warned, though: The action scenes in Perfect Answer are even harder and bloodier than before.
Good watch, even though not as good as the first part, unfortunately. I still recommend watching it, though!
