Cyborg agent Motoko Kusanagi (Scarlett Johansson) lives in 2029 futuresque-Japan, where artificial intelligence is more real than reality itself. Although Motoko is aware of what she is, she knows that she was once a human, and longs for the ability to experience that connection again. She has a past, and vows to uncover the mystery around the person she used to be.

With her security team Public Security Section 9, she must take down notorious hacker, the Puppet Master. However, as Motoko begins to question her entire existence, her ability to distinguish where humanity ends and cyborgism begins is put the ultimate test.

Based on the Japanese manga series of the same name by Masamune Shirow.

  • 5 stars "This movie looks great!! I agree, it is not a 'race' issue in this film...the main female character in GITS Anime version doesn't look 'Asian.' Besides, if Scar Jo is Caucasian, and she is, and people are not happy about that, their is "Asian" in the word CaucAsian! Get it? Ha ha...heeeheee...This will be a great movie and anime is multi-ethnic and diverse all the time...if the world did abide by anime principles of inclusion in the artist's and writer's character development process, we would all be a lot better off...!!!!"
  • 5 stars "anime characters are fluid...they do not have to be a certain race in the adaptation and the anime character female does not even look a hundred percent Asian...she is more diffuse...besides don't bring race into this fantastic story we already know the bias of Hollywood. think instead about the technology and how it is used and is continuing to develop in the GITS movie."
  • 1 star "Crappy looking wanna be matrix movie... Half the stuff in the trailer is nothing like the original source material. 2 examples She isn't the only cyborg and she doesn't do matrix style moves.... Should have at least gotten the Wachowskis to direct the movie.... They only spent 10+ years trying to get a production company to get the rights to make it....."
