Our take

Hovering between a remake and a visual remix, Mamoru Oshii’s fascinating Ghost in the Shell 2.0 updates his cyberpunk cult classic with new technologies such as 3D CGI. Echoing the duality of the cyborg protagonist, the mix of old and new animation styles also parallels the evolution of anime.
