A film that has spawned a thousand imitations but never been bettered - Mamoru Oshii's legendary anime film Ghost in the Shell returns in a stunning new edition remastered by Oshii himself.
Rotten Tomatoes Score: 100%

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"It remains an emotive, sensuous and visually arresting work despite the unnecessary tinkering."
‑ David Jenkins, Time Out
"It looks great, for sure: demonic cityscapes, lysergic mind-trips and aestheticised military hardware. And it's admirably grown-up in its aspiration too."
‑ Andrew Pulver, Guardian
"Ghost in the Shell 2.0 has clearly been created to draw to the franchise a younger generation more used to crisper, more vibrant animation, and with this in mind it succeeds."
‑ Toby Weidmann, Filmstar Magazine
"... 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..."
‑ Sean Axmaker, Seanax.com
"Mamoru Oshii's digitally tweaked, colour- corrected and otherwise "enhanced" version of his 1995 anime classic remains as visually ravishing and bafflingly opaque as ever."
‑ Wendy Ide, Times [UK]
"A considerably better re-tooling than certain other 'reimagined' sci-fi films we could mention. A classic given extra class."
‑ Daniel Etherington, Film4
"It remains a powerful and intelligent film and looks to become all the more relevant as we drift into a future played out in series of noughts and ones."
‑ Matt Bochenski, Little White Lies
