Critic Reviews for Kôkaku kidôtai 2.0 (Ghost in the Shell 2.0)
It remains an emotive, sensuous and visually arresting work despite the unnecessary tinkering.
... an odd hybrid of the original film and the slick 3D computer animation scenes, which is great for the cyber-imagery but... has less personality when it is used on the characters...
A considerably better re-tooling than certain other 'reimagined' sci-fi films we could mention. A classic given extra class.
It looks great, for sure: demonic cityscapes, lysergic mind-trips and aestheticised military hardware. And it's admirably grown-up in its aspiration too.
Audience Reviews for Kôkaku kidôtai 2.0 (Ghost in the Shell 2.0)
As someone who has not seen the original GITS in years and generally dislikes the way CG is done, I still rate GITS 2.0 five stars. The negative reviews have a point but I hardly find the film to lose /that/ much (one star?). I also disliked many of the changes to the original Star Wars but still rate the re-release version five stars also. The original animation from GITS has a lot of "soul" in it and this is a classic anime. Definitely recommended to fans of cyberpunk, Blade Runner.
Not a sequel, just a modified version of the original, and amazing, GitS. The original cell animation will always hold up, and looks great in HD.
The films content is obviously well-presented, but the images lack the poignancy of the original's painted quality. Worth seeing for the tech-advances, sure, but if i were to convert someone i would do it with the original!!
