"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

Great, smart and complex Sci-Fi story, which can be a little confusing, but never boring, about cyborg Motoko which asks herself what makes us human. Movie that deserves and requires deep thinking and multiple viewings. Anime that inspired The Matrix and got inspired by Blade Runner, so if you like those movies, you'll might wanna check out Ghost in the Shell (Kôkaku Kidôtai).

A good movie

“I already saw this movie but since it was a while ago and since I had it on DVD, I was quite eager to check it out again. Well, in Japanese animation, it is probably one of the most famous movies in this genre and it is indeed a rather fascinating feature, even though it can be rather challenging. Still, I really loved its mesmerising soundtrack and, even 20 years later, the animation is pretty impressive with some rather breathtaking scenes. However, the whole thing did feel rather outdated during the dialogues scenes as there was no movement whatsoever, except for the lips of the characters when they talked. Concerning the story, it is probably one of the most philosophical animated movies out there which makes the whole thing equally interesting but also difficult to follow and, sometim” read more

"Mar 13th 5.8 Excellent visual style and apocalyptic world. The story doesn't have enough power to carry all the way to the end but still worth a view imo. "
