A prequel to the original with decent animation and interesting political plot. Very little of the philosophical AI implications nor the contemplative feel of the original. Worthwhile if you like Ghost in the Shell but don't expect anything truly outstanding.

I really loved this movie. Great anime like this does one thing that Hollywood only wishes they could - it gets the action scenes right. Nobody comes close to anime in how to stage an action scene and this is no exception. We have well defined characters (without spending too much time on them) that all interact well together. The other thing anime does is - confuse the heck out of me! The plot is moving so fast that I couldn't tell you what actually happened. I mean, yes, I know the bad guys were doing bad things and there were conspiracies within conspiracies but don't ask me how those parts fit together. It speaks to the fact I enjoyed the movie so much that I still can recommend it even with the confusing plot. I guess I am used to the fact Asian story telling moves at a different speed than American. The plus is - the story is smart and well paced. The minus is - you have to go along for the ride without always understanding the ride :).
