Ghost in the Shell

This review is from: Ghost In The Shell [DVD]  (DVD)
definately very very clever..
A bit of Blade Runner and Matrix. A science fiction thriller, which is certainly thought provoking with many scenes in the film that are awesome and hit you like a wet plank up side the head. One of these movies I will certainly be watching a few times and taking more from each time, I think. Definately an adult animation visually and technically, the images of a futuristic world are burned into my brain like the phosphor on a cathode ray tube. I found the ending a bit sudden, but on reflection it was maybe because I was enjoying it so much. Just goes to show you that movie making dosen't have to lie in the arms of the Hollywood moguls. As with the Studio Ghibli / Hayao Miyazaki animations, and now, for me, this MANGA thriller lets me know that the art of great movie making is safe - you just got to look around for it
