About the Movie
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"?

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: The drawing style is remarkable in a story that reveals a Japanese preoccupation with roboticized culture and hard-edged sexuality.
Fresh: Mamoru Oshii's direction deftly merges gritty realism with a dreamlike quality.
Fresh: I enjoyed its visuals, its evocative soundtrack (including a suite for percussion and heavy breathing), and its ideas.
Fresh: This is a work of profound and melancholic beauty; every bit as essential in the 21st century as it was in the 20th.
Among the best.......BAR NONE
If you love anime and you haven't seen Ghost In The Shell....then YOU ARE MISSING OUT!!
A great mix of animation techniques and visuals that will leave you wanting more.
Granted....the segues are a little drawn-out, but the plot, action and animation will make you forget about the "artistic merrit" of the of the overall work.
Akira set the standard.....Ghost In The Shell raised the bar by into orbit!
This will blow your mind!
Best Anime that has ever ever EVER been made! No anime in the world can top this series!

The story line was awesome, animation was great! And trust me, I'm super picky when it comes to anime.
