Created by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and codenamed "Project 2501," this 'hacker' is actually a prototype virtual agent which has now defied its makers by seeking asylum within a new host body outside of the electronic net. Now the two agencies must maneuver against each another in a violent, high-tech race to capture the omnipresent entity.

Ghost in the shell dog reviews

by

Ghost in the shell is a must see for any otaku it is worth the buy

5 star rating out of 5

Cyberpunk at it's finest

by

Along with Akira, Ghost in the Shell is considered by many to be one of the finest examples of Japanese animation ever put to film. If cyberpunk and neo-noir are your forte, this is where it began. For fans of Psycho Pass, Mardock Scramble and Blade Runner. This is the release you want, as this film was only previously released as a bonus feature on the 2.0 release which updated the film with a lot of unnecessary CGI (a la Star Wars special editions). This 25th anniversary blu-ray gives you crisp audio and picture quality previously unmatched. Highly recommended.

A staple of Japanese anime

by -

An anime from the 1990s, this movie shows a unique aspect of cyber punk themed animation, along with many people in the production going on to other well-known anime, such as Cowboy Bebop, and Gundam 0083.

Admitted classic but not the best film made... Flawed BD release.

by

What can I say that's good about GiTS? Excellent art direction, a good soundtrack, and a solid cast.
The film has decent pacing and explores issues about evolving AI and what defines consciousness...
The original GiTS is definitely the best theatrical GiTS. It may still be the best GiTS entry in the franchise to date.
Be aware that the only differences among the NA BD releases are their packaging! You get the same Blu ray disc, steelbook or not! The major omission is the lack of the 5.1/6.1 Japanese audio track remix which WAS on the deluxe 2-disc DVD release of GiTS. The BD's also have no extras on them!

A Classic Anime

by -

A film that deserves its status as a classic. Blends action and existentialism in a cyberpunk setting to compelling effect. My only complaint is the lack of any bonus features on this release, seems like a missed opportunity.
