Groundbreaking director Mamoru Oshii continues to push the boundaries of art and animé with this universally-acclaimed cyber thriller about a quest for a killer that becomes a mind-bending search for the meaning of life. The long-awaited sequel to Ghos
Mamoru Oshii's landmark Ghost in the Shell (1995) largely defined the cyberpunk genre and influenced the Matrix films in the U.S. The long-awaited sequel continues the adventures of Batou, Major Kusanagi's former assistant, who was left behind when she disappeared into the cyber-realm of the Net. With his new human partner, Togusa, Batou investigates a series of bloody murders involving gynoids, robots with sexual functions. The case leads them to the headquarters of the Locus Solus company, where Batou uncovers the evil secret behind the creation of the gynoids. Innocence includes some staggeringly beautiful CG images, especially a parade depicting characters from Chinese mythology. Oshii contrasts this glittering beauty with a Blade Runner-esque dystopia. But even his skill as a director can't disguise the fact that the underdeveloped story and flat characters are far less interesting than the opulent visuals. (Rated PG-13: graphic violence, violence against women, brief nudity, profanity, alcohol and tobacco use.) --Charles Solomon

SPOILER: If you require the Major for a good Ghost in the Shell story, you'll be disappointed. She's in this less than Solid State Society - about five to ten minutes at the end,... Read morePublished 1 month ago by kamiomi

the movie is a 5/5, but the dvd's subtitles are annoying in that they have subtitles for background noise. Read morePublished 4 months ago by Matthew
I saw the first one some time back - but don't remember details, so I won't pretend to comparison. No matter, this flick stands by itself, no comparison needed. Read morePublished 5 months ago by wiredweird

|Has the subtitle problem been fixed?||
What problem? I don't have the English dub, just standard DVD--thought the subtitles were suppose to be that way.... Just watched it---seems okay to me. Do you have Blu-ray or is it defective?

|Does the Bluray edition of this film have the Manga UK and Bang Zoom! dubs?||
Manga UK dubs? Bang Zoom! dubs?
Never heard of those. Are those of a cast other than the show
cast? Are those the voices that weren't from the series?
If you want the version with the show dubs, go to Amazon.co.uk.
You can log in with your US account, and can have things shipped
to the US.... Read More

The U.K Region 2 will not play on a Region 1 player as it's a different Region. It should play fine on a Region free dvd player. I haven't checked (because I don't own a Region free player - my laptop is set to Region 1) but there could be an issue with the format as well as the Region code. The... Read More
