In addition, human brains can connect to the internet directly. Major Motoko Kusanagi is an officer in Section 9, an elite, secretive police division that deals with special operations, including counter terrorism and cyber crime. She is currently on the trail of the Puppet Master, a cyber criminal who hacks into the brains of cyborgs in order to obtain information and to commit other crimes.
Plot: In the year 2029, the barriers of our world have been broken down by the net and by cybernetics, but this brings new vulnerability to humans in the form of brain-hacking. When a highly-wanted hacker known as ‘The Puppetmaster’ begins involving them in politics, Section 9, a group of cybernetically enhanced cops, are called in to investigate and stop the Puppetmaster.

Don’t Listen to koryanpiora
This is single handedly one of the best animated films I’ve ever seen. You can definitely tell how far the animation genre has gotten in the last half-century. It’s pretty much flawless in my opinion. The story, audio, and especially visuals are excellent. This is definitely one of the most pretty films i’ve ever seen. The philosophy really made me think too, the matrix tried this idea and failed horribly with it’s sequels. This one isn’t just for hipsters, if you’re a sci-fi fan I couldn’t recommend this more. If you liked this, I also recommend Akira, The Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex series, and the upcoming Steamboy
Exploring the nature of the human soul
This movie takes on some of the themes that Dark City explores, namely the nature of the soul (or ghost as this movie refers to it), the nature of who we are and sentience in general. Like Dark City, this movie deals with the ability to program human memories and thus change our identity. In this movie, the programming is done through computers by hacking into the person’s brain and then rewriting the brainwave patterns. This movie also looks at technological advancement and questions its morality. Will we advance to a point where technology will become sentient and turn on us? Ghost in the shell is based around a group of officers belonging to an organisation known as section 9. These cops are heavily enhanced through cybernetics and deal with cyber-criminals. They are chasing a criminal known as the puppet master, who has done everything from terrorism to theft of information. He is a threat because he seeks to undermine international security. The puppet master is very dangerous because he hacks into people’s souls (ghosts) and rewrites them and thus uses them to further his gaols. His goals are never really quite clear but this is not what Ghost in the Shell is looking for.
The title of the movie suggests the theme of the movie. Can technology reach a point to where we can transfer our bodies and retain our soul? And is the soul something that can be programmed and manipulated? This movie seems to suggest that it is, and it is our soul that makes us human, everything else is simply a shell. We are focused on the cyborgs and they are contrasted with a police officer who has only a phone installed in his head. Yet we notice that the cyborgs are as human as the police officer. They still enjoy the pleasures of life and seek to experience more. The drawback is that their body is owned by the government and thus they have less freedom than those with a flesh body. Even so, they are still human.
Sentience is another theme. It questions the structure of our soul and raises the idea as to whether such souls will develop through rapid technological advancement. In an evolutionary way, with the creation and development of cyberspace, the possibility of cybercreatures appearing is theorised. This movie jumps straight to sentient cybercreatures who have no form but a program, though they are very dangerous for they can manipulate the outside world through technology. Such a creature is generated in Lawnmower man, but he was first a human. Ghost in the Shell suggests that such a creature arose out of our ignorance of what we were developing.
Ghost in the Shell is a brilliant manga movie. At first I thought it was slow, but the second time I realised that though there is good action, the ideas that are prevalent throughout make it a top rating movie.
Favourite Quote: Just your standard issue big gun, borrowed it from section 9 armoury and decided to keep it. Sorry that I’m a bit late, had to go home and get it.
