Trivia

As part of the Nissan sponsorship, the movie features two concept cars designed by Nissan. The character Togusa drives a white Nissan's Sport Concept hatchback, and both Togusa and Aramaki travel in Nissan's six seater Infiniti Kuraza. Nissan's six seater Infiniti Kuraza's license plate is 3923 which read as san-kyuu-ni-san (in Japanese) or "Thank you Nissan". See more »

OK, but for me a big let down
10 March 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Ghost in the Shell: Solid State Society, is probably the weakest in the Ghost in the Shell series of films and TV shows and is the third entry into the Stand Alone Complex series.

The anime is a good as any of the Stand Alone Complex series though doesn't quite match up to the two feature films. The drawing and shading has improved greatly over the series and is at its best here, there are moments when I noticed flickering but this is rare and again better than the two series of Stand Alone Society.

Where the story falls, compared to the rest of the Stand Alone Society is story, which I didn't find nearly as engaging as with previous efforts. Solid State Society is very slow to get going and really never builds the tension that it really should. Too much time seems to be spent on explaining what has happened over between the previous series and this film, which could have worked with a complete series but bogs the film down, with its much shorter running time.

Whilst I didn't hate the film, I must say that I was very disappointed, It is trying to be clever but for me was a let down in what is a very good series.
