Gantz (2004 IMDb)

Categorization

Bizarre SF set up as a bad video-game shooter.

Subject

A number of people who happen to die are copied into a weird game of survival horror, where they receive high-tech weapons and superpower suits, and are teleported out to kill absurd “aliens”. In between rounds, they return to the normal world. Several of them bring pieces of equipment back, and one of them appears to have been copied rather than actually killed.

Commentary

Annoying language (everything is yabbee), bad characters (especially a vapid female, who fortunately manages to fall in love with somebody other than the main character), unimpressive graphics and the general appearance that the many questions simply won't be answered.
