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: 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.
Fresh: I confess I find it too opaque to make the kind of investment that would qualify me as a real fan. But it should be seen.
This is in english.
To verify, this is the english dub.
I really do like this movie. I like the sequel as well, however, I can't really find that film. They should put ghost in the shell: innocence on I-tunes.
Awesome (but would like Japanese audio option)
Movie gets 5 stars. It’s the original (not 2.0) in HD. Pure awesomeness. Docked one star because I would like iTunes to include the Japanese audio as an option.
