"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.

Amazing aesthetically; Music and action scenes especially.

"February 6th Directed by: Mamoru Oshii 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"
