Mamoru Oshii's futuristic animated masterpiece, 'Ghost In The Shell 2.0', is the perfect film to experience on Blu-ray. Seamlessly merging traditional cel animation with the latest computer graphic imagery, this stunning remastered sci-fi spectacle has broken the boundaries of mainstream animation with its detailed artistic direction and uniquely intelligent story line.

Aided by an esoteric Kenji Kawaii score, 'Ghost In The Shell' took the world by storm in 1996, introducing a new wave of Japanese animation through its mesmerzing cinematic expression. A movie that questions our own human existence in the fast-paced world of the information age, this remarkable, award-winning, cyber-tech thriller has gone on to become one of the leading Japanese animation films of all time and now the remastered version Ghost In The Shell 2.0 in stunning high definition Blu-ray!

 A disappointing update of a classic

| | See all NoSuch's reviews (2)

The original Ghost in the Shell is one of my all-time favourite sci-fi movies, and I was looking forward to this update.

And indeed, some scenes have been updated with lovely CGI graphics. The problem is that they don't blend in with the majority of scenes that are unchanged from the original. It feels like you're switching between two completely differently designed films. The two Kusanagis don't even look the same, which is distracting to say the least.

I didn't quite give up though, and tried to watch the original version included as bonus material on the blu-ray. The original Ghost in the Shell in HD would still be worth the price of the disc - only it turned out to be in un-glorious Standard Definition with plain stereo sound, and actually inferior to the DVD version I already own.

In conclusion: wait for the blu-ray of the original GitS. I wish I had.

 i agree with nosuch's review

most issues already covered ie picture / sound etc, i have to support nosuch' review of the blending of 2d manga classic style anime which is on its own what you expect from a manga classic with new style ultra high quality cgi which is so good it almost looks 3d, unfortuantely in my opinion the two do not mix well at all, if the whole film were done in one or the other it would be superb but the cutting between the two styles was very annoying, it made the old style seem so outdated which it wouldn't have seemed if it was like that all the way through, i am sorry but the blending is just so wrong, unlike other programmes which have replaced old special effects with cgi that worked ie Star trek original series and the original star wars trilogy they stuck to the original concept and improved what they had, this just changes totally all the way through, it feels disjointed, makes you want to skip scenes, just wrong,wrong, wrong.

 A must for all Blu Ray Players! :)

Ghost In The Shell has always been a classic anime. This is an amazing re-image! mixing the same animation with more up to date CGI! it is just a brilliant film made even better by the addition of the new cgi scenes!

 Not just a HD version its much more

I can garuntee you this will be a excellent movie the graphics have been redone to bring it more upto date with the second film & stand alone complex other then that it is exactly the same scene for scene
