5.0 out of 5 stars Close to perfection., 21 Mar. 2008
This review is from: Ghost In The Shell [DVD] [1995] (DVD)
So, all anime is for kids right? Well try watching this and tell me it's anything other than an adult movie. In spite of the awesome 'Akira', it was 'Ghost In The Shell' that showed audiences worldwide that anime was thought-provoking, adult material, that could and should, be mentioned in the same breath as the best live-action sci-fi movies you can name.

Many people just didn't get this. They complained when there wasn't enough action. Expecting a body count in the thousands and naked chicks everywhere, instead they got a cyber-punk mystery thriller, far more concerned with mankind's battle with machine than mindless slaying (go watch Fist Of The North Star' or something). Well, this is a mature film for mature people, and should be seen at all costs.

But action junkies fear not. There's plenty to get the pulse racing, including a phenomenal cyborg versus tank scrap, and a thrilling chase through a busy street, featuring bullets, martial arts and all sorts.

So to all anime virgins, check this out. You may never look back.
