Reviews

The Telegraph - Robbie Collin
There are gripping chases and balletic combat scenes, painstakingly realised by Oshii’s animators, but the mood is mostly cold and melancholic, as Kusanagi broods over the fleshly implications of living in a world of data

Time Out London - Tom Huddleston
The plot is impossibly dense and the characters – perhaps appropriately – feel like little more than cyphers, but for sheer mind-expanding sci-fi strangeness this is hard to beat.
80
The Dissolve - Noel Murray
For a movie that’s so photo-realistic in its backgrounds and detailed in its character design, Ghost In The Shell is just as effective when it goes minimal, suggesting presence through absence.

The Guardian - Peter Bradshaw
It is a dizzying, headspinning film, replete with violence, alienation and tech-porn. I confess I find it too opaque to make the kind of investment that would qualify me as a real fan. But it should be seen.

Total Film - Jamie Graham
Most alluring are the crumbling neon cityscapes, real world/cyberspace fusion and the musings on identity.
