The videoweed one still works for me.
It wasn't spectacular, but overall I was impressed with it. It isn't as dark or perverse as the manga, but overall it was a pretty good adaptation. The Buddha statue scene, in particular, was rather impressive. I didn't think they'd kill everyone who dies in the manga there, but they stuck to it & I applaud them for it. Sure, I would have liked to have seen bosses in all of the missions (there was no boss in the movie version of the "birdy" mission. However, the "robotic" bodies of the "birdies" moved how I thought they would if they were "real"), but they crammed a lot from those first 3 missions into a 2 hour movie.
Granted, like I said above, the english dubb was amusing at times when it shouldn't have been. Nichi's voice actor, in particular, was unintentionally hilarious.
Looking at the preview for part 2 it looks like it will take some stuff from the manga but I'm guessing like the anime it will leave a lot out so it can end well before the manga does (or will, considering it hasn't ended yet).
I'm hoping for the shorty aliens as well as the dinosaur mission in part 2, but do not see them anywhere in the preview. Here's
a different preview for part 1, which I think is better than the one I previously linked.
Here's the preview for part 2, Gantz: Perfect Answer
