When terrorism reaches a new level that includes the ability to hack into people's minds and control them, Major Kusanagi is uniquely qualified to stop it. As she prepares to face a new enemy, Major Kusanagi discovers that she has been lied to: her life was not saved, it was stolen. She will stop at nothing to recover her past, find out who did this to her and stop them before they do it to others.Written by

In this movie story (or plot, whatever) is not only overridden by CGI, but swallowed, after brutal chewing. It is really doubtful whether anything beside CGI actually happens. At moments one can catch some "glitches" of a story, but that's all. The topic on mixing human with artificial organisms has been many times before and better, even when it was unbearable to watch and/or stupid (Van Damme). One more proof that no cast or director or technicians or CGI creators, regardless of how good they might be, can carry out the essentially meaningless "manga" content in a movie and make it worth spectators' time. OK, Japanese are probably used to it and it is part of their culture, but outside that this is simply crap.
