  1. Why I gave this movie a chance after the original’s complete and utter failure, I have no idea. It’s filled with computer-animated graphics; way to start off on the wrong foot there. CG is total garbage. You can’t relate with the main character, because he is devoid of personality. The plot is random at best; and everyone is chock-full of ‘wise-old-man’ sayings. If that isn’t enough to make you vomit, the soundtrack (copied straight from the original) will. If your lucky you’ll fall asleep like I did and wake up when the torment, er…movie, is over.

  2. GitS 2 is a confused mis-mash of CGI and traditional Japanese animation. The CGI is completely out of place and it distracts the viewer, not letting them into the story. It has the makings for a good story, but the presentation is simply awful.

  3. If you’re not smart enough to read the subtitles and watch the movie at the same time, you’re not smart enough to watch Ghost in the Shell, plain and simple.

  4. Sheesh, the film’s subtitles are identical to the theatrical release last summer. Nothing added or removed. It’s possible the written [sound effects] style is sort of infracamp, like the old Batman Pow Zap Ka-Boom visuals, but way more sly — they’re meant to help Americans understand the film, after all. In fact, the movie feels as though it were assembled by a committee, with every subcommittee effort maxed out and very little central guidance. Only the visuals really shine — the graphic art is intense. The writing is bizarre, pretentious and gauthic, umlauts included. Finally, what all the surreal soliloquys boil down to is a kind of Daumer-esque disappointment, a vivisectionist’s brooding on missing soul and undetectable essences. As sequels go, this one completely lost the thread of Major Kusanagi’s long dark night of the stroll [sic, sic, sic] through nocturnal Hong Kong.

  5. Ghost in the Shell 2 is not only the best visually produced Anime ever, the questions asked are THE most relevent questions of our time. SO MUCH SO THAT IT WILL TAKE SOMETIME FOR THE GENERAL PUBLIC TO UNDERSTAND EXACTLY HOW RLEVENT THIS MOVIE IS.
