I thought I had lost hope in the entire movie industry over the past 5 years until Ghost in the Shell came along. This one gave me the tingles just like the first time I watched The Matrix. If you like futuristic Sci-Fi thrillers, you're going to love this one! I highly recommend having a couple of drinks before you watch it. It will loosen up your mind and get you ready to absorb the mind-blowing scenes to come.
I am a big fan of the original and I've heard that the new one isn't as good. A little worried to watch it as a result.
