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.

First of all I have to say that I'm not a manga or anime fan even though I've watched the GITS anime twice and think is amazingly deep in terms of its story-line and philosophical topics. I went to see this movie trying to forget the anime, letting myself be surprised by the characters and plot. And must say that I really enjoyed the movie, especially that "retro noir", post apocalyptic atmosphere a la Blade Runner. I never expected to find the same scenes that appear on the anime, that would be a complete waste of time and effort. What would be the point on replicating the same scenes? Instead of that, the movie adds a slightly different approach compared to the original story and sacrifices some philosophical matters perhaps to keep the fast-paced of the action. Another aspect worth to mention is the original score, so magnificent, flowing with the scenes, helping to create that dark, robotic and apocalyptic look.
