Man, I love IMDB plot keywords!
Here’s one for movies featuring a torso cut in half. Pretty damn specific, you’d think. Right? Wrong! There are 118 movies in IMDB which have been tagged with this sucker! And I can narrow those 118 bad boys down even more as the above image shows.
What if I want to see all movies featuring a torso cut in half which also feature “breasts”? No problem!
But dammit if there aren’t 25 of those. I think I’m in the mood of torsos being cut in half, breasts, and… martial arts!
Now we’re talking. We’re down to 6, and most of those have unpronounceable Japanese names (who’d have thought it?). I’ll narrow it down a little further, though, just to be sure, adding “trousers” into the mix: straight outta leftfield! I feel like a bit of trousers with my torso mutilation, martial arts and breasts.
Et voila: Gantz.
As you can see, it’s some form of anime. Here’s the plot summary on IMDB:
A group of people are resurrected from their deaths by a mysterious black ball called GANTZ to combat alien criminals hiding on Earth.
