    Synopsis


    Ghost in the Shell: Solid State Society
    In a future where the War on Terror is being fought in cyberspace, and elite counter-terrorism task force charged with keeping the internet safe must catch a hacker whose remarkable skills are unlike anything they have ever encountered. In the year 2034, terrorists have taken on a decidedly hi-tech persona. The job of Public Security Section 9 is to ensure that the integrity of the internet is not compromised by terrorists who would effectively bring the information superhighway to a crippling standstill. Previously, it was Major Motoko Kusanagi who was charged with overseeing the investigations of Public Security Section 9. But Major Kusanagi retired from her post two years ago, and now a skilled hacker known only as The Puppeteer is determined to bring the entire technological infrastructure crumbling to the ground. Now, as the members of Section 9 track The Puppeteer, they uncover a vast conspiracy that leads to the highest levels of government. When Major Kusanagi mysteriously reappears, some even begin to suspect that she is in league with the computer savvy terrorist. As the Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex continues in this techno-thriller from director Kenji Kamiyama, absolutely no one is above suspicion ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

      Add-on story for "Ghost in the Shell" fans.

      Solid State Society is a good addition to the Ghost in the Shell universe. It is consistent with the TV series GitS: Stand Alone Complex 1st and 2nd seasons (Gigs). The animation quality is also consistent with the TV series and the original GitS movie (1995). The newer films (GitS 2.0 and Innocence) are to a higher standard. Note: the "Laughing Man" and "Individual Eleven" that have been marketed with this are collected excerpts focusing on the primary story lines from the two TV seasons. A new group of Original Videos (OVAs) called GitS: Arise about the founding of Section 9 are now being released in Japan

      Do you remember GITS:SAC and 2nd Gig? Well now it's a film that adds greatness to the other two GITS series and movies. Motoko "Major" Kusanagi has retired from Section 9 and Togusa has taken over as squad leader. However with a cyber-terrorist calling himself the "Puppeteer" whoes making cyborgs to commit suicide enters the picture. Is this enough for "Major" Kusanagi to return to Section 9? The net is vast and endless...

      Lots of action as well as the intelligence that is expected from anything Ghost in the shell. Great music, and the special case and soundtrack were great. A definite must for any collector. [Note: has the regular English dub vocal cast unlike the Laughing Man and Individual Elven collections]

      This is a good collection to add to the Ghost in the Shell series. Don't watch this movie if you haven't seen the Ghost in the Shell series or the movie G.I.S. Innocent otherwise you will get lost in what is happening. But if you have then definitely buy this.

      The classic anime now on Blu-ray. Are used to watch that show when I was a kid. It's definitely one of the best anime series out there and for anybody who is in the anime or ghost in the shell I recommend it.

      Ghost in the Shell has been around for decades & is still ahead of its time. It is one of the greatest animation series ever made. I'll buy/watch anything that is Ghost in the Shell.

      The storyline however remains a bit confusing. The authorities fight to track missing children but there is more talking than actual action. Just like the original.

      No, I would not recommend this to a friend
