Innovative anime.

"And where does the newborn go from here? The net is vast and infinite."

Back when it was first released, Ghost in the Shell was looked upon as a thoroughly engaging and original piece of anime. Over 10 years on the film has lost next to none of its original impact.

But it's a shame the film is too convoluted, confusing, and rather boring at times too. I will admit t... read more

Amazing aesthetically; Music and action scenes especially.
The Scifi is cyberpunk with a bit more classical science fiction. Plot and characters are good but the major's choice to accept needed more explanation.

From the very beginning, Ghost in the Shell promises to be something very special. The beautiful opening music sets the tone, emanating the futuristic, mystical quality that pervades the film. And for the next 85 mins it will put a spell over you and catapult you into its brilliantly realised vision.

The visuals are spectacular! Truly mesmerising. It's difficult not to be completel... read more

"February 6th There are two scenes in this movie I really like, the tone, the music and (sometimes) the art are really great but I just can't get past how terribly paced and how utterly boring this movie is."

"A female cyborg cop hunts down a super hacker called The Puppet Master while a diplomat seeks refuge in her country/state Good but there is something preventing this film being truly great imho - maybe its the weird aspect of keep seeing naked bodies its as if the makers decided to throw in tits and ass to boost its appeal. The philosophical points are just hammered home too I can see why many peole would consider this a classic but for me its just good"

“From the very beginning, Ghost in the Shell promises to be something very special. The beautiful opening music sets the tone, emanating the futuristic, mystical quality that pervades the film. And for the next 85 mins it will put a spell over you and catapult you into its brilliantly realised vision.

The visuals are spectacular! Truly mesmerising. It's difficult not to be completely taken in by the sheer intensity of the images.

Because the viewer is forced straight into the depths of the film's story-world without much explanatory dialogue, the first viewing can be a little bit overwhelming. Just taking in the amazing visuals, hypnotic music and vivid atmosphere is a delight in itself without even considering the narrative. As a result, Ghost in the Shell will hold up ” read more
