Plot Summary

In the year 2029, the world has become interconnected by a vast electronic network that permeates every aspect of life. That same network also becomes a battlefield for Tokyo's Section Nine security force, which has been charged with apprehending the master hacker known only as the Puppet Master. Spearheading the investigation is Major Motoko Kusanagi, who - like many in her department - is a cyborg officer, far more powerful than her human appearance would suggest. And yet as the Puppet Master, who is even capable of hacking human minds, leaves a trail of victims robbed of their memories. Motoko begins to ponder the very nature of her existence: is she purely an artificial construct, or is there more? What, exactly, is the "ghost" - her essence - in her cybernetic "shell"?

Customer Reviews

A masterful film, but not on iTunes

No question this is a science fiction classic. It's intelligent, beautiful, and has a terrific soundtrack. Here on iTunes though, it's dubbed, like an old kung-fu movie from the 1970s. See this on blu-ray instead, with the orginal actors, as the director intended. Dubbing isn't acceptable, ever. It's an insult to cinema, to directors, and to audiences.


Where the idea for the matrix came from, film master work cartoon or no


Wonderful film but where's the Japanese language track. Absolute shame.
