Short Review: Ghost In The Shell.

Premise: In the future, two cyborg cops hunt down a super-hacker called The Puppetmaster who is hacking into cyborgs' ghosts (souls) and taking over their shells, making them do criminal acts.

Starring: A bunch of voice actors you won't know.

My Reaction: This is one of the biggest inspirations for The Matrix, as most people know. Now, I'd seen bits and pieces of this movie years ago. I remembered certain parts, specifically the battle against the giant tank thing near the end (there were others, but that was the main one). But I'd decided to finally sit down and watch the whole thing through. As we know, I'm a pretty big anime fan, so this isn't a big deal. But man, this movie was rough. I was also forced into the displeasure of watching it with English dubbing. The animation quality was poor. I know the characters are pretty much robots, but they were so monotone and boring. The story is dragged out and sometimes confusing. I kept waiting for the movie to be almost over, and I'd realize there was still 30+ minutes left. Don't get me wrong, it had its good moments. But you know what those moments were? The only parts I had any memory of from years ago. Go figure. And man was there a lot of animated nudity...

Stop Saying Okay! Okay.


  1. I kinda liked this movie, but I LOVED the TV series. Have you seen it, and if so what'd you think? (we might have already talked about this, I don't remember)

  2. No, I haven't seen the show yet. But I've heard good things.
