Film information

Based on: The manga by Shirow Masamune

Story: Double bill of anime features. 'Ghost in the Shell 2.0' is an enhanced version of the original 1995 film 'Ghost in the Shell' directed by Mamoru Oshi. This version includes over 90 altered and enhanced scenes and a new soundtrack containing dialogue re-recorded by the original actors, as well as one new cast member. In a futuristic world where cyberspace, artificial intelligences and cyborg cops are the norm, only the Ghost (the indefinable element of human consciousness) exists to determine who is alive and who is purely a creation of the Net. Major Motoko Kusanagi is an elite officer in the Shell Squad who has been so heavily modified that little more than her Ghost remains. She is assigned to finding a computer criminal who is skilled enough to hack into the minds of his victims, and she finds that he uses humans as puppets to do his evil deeds. Things soon take on a more sinister twist. 'Ghost in the Shell 2: Innocence' is the enhanced director's cut of the 2004 sequel to the original 1995 feature. In 2032, the boundaries between human and robot have started to break down, and cyborg alteration is the norm. Public Security Section 9 is the organisation responsible for policing this brave new world, and when cyborg detective Bato takes on a case of a female pleasure robot that brutally murdered its owner, he uncovers similar crimes taking place throughout the city, as robots, cyborgs, and even humans start to question what it really means to be alive.
