The original GiTS is beloved for its then cutting edge mixture of traditional animation and CG effects. Plus it threw in philosophical technobabble in between the action scenes so people thought it was intelligent too. The world that is realized both in the anime film and the original manga looks believable and unique. Not much for character development though if that's what you're looking for. Did I mention there's several moments featuring a bare naked female cyborg? Maybe that's why nerds like it so much.

The dystopian setting is certainly fascinating, visually, and the film has many arresting animated sequences. My chief problem lies in the amount of exposition that occurs in the dialogue. In nearly every scene, characters stand around, talking and explaining things. I get that the plot is complex, but, still - it gets boring after a while.

Action: 3/3 + Comedy: 1/2 + Good vs Evil: 1/1 + Love/Sex: 1/1 + Special Effects: 1/1 + Plot: 1/1 + Music: 1/1 = 9/10 or 90%. This is a brillaint sci-fi film and not many films in this genre are better. The fight sequences and overall plot are tediously built within a wonderful story towards an effective conclusion. The one short-coming may be the dated references to the internet, but if the "paint" scenes in 2001 aren't a problem then why should the one short-coming be?

An anime noir with an intricate, complex storyline; the characters, however, are never as intriguing or convincing as they ought to be. Final Grade: B
