The Future of Anime,
This review is from: Ghost in the Shell [DVD]  (DVD)
Ghost in the Shell is a truly magnificent film, combining a unique, original storyline, with superb visuals, and enough action to satisfy action lovers, the film stands on it's own as one of the most amazing japanimation films. The year is 2019, and the world is caught up in the fast-paced information world, cyborgs and A.I are more real than humans, and only the ghost is the thing left from the human consciencness. The Puppet-master, a skilled Hacker, can hack into the minds of his enemies. Wha follows is almost two hours of complex philosphical dialogue, adrenaline pumping action, a unique storyline, all from the brilliant imagination of Masamune Shirow. Without Ghost in the Shell, the Matrix would have never existed.
