Format: Blu-ray
Disregard the other reviews posted here, as they are reviews copied by Amazon for the original standard-def DVD release.

Ghost In The Shell 2 comes alive on Blu-Ray. After an abysmal DVD release that featured no English dub and horrid subtitles, the folks at Bandai went back and ported the film over to true HD glory. It is the best reason to pick up the film if you have a Blu-Ray player.

The first noticeable difference is the inclusion of a full-fledged English dub. For folks who can't stand English subtitles (myself included), this is a breath of fresh air and a great way to watch the film without broken concentration. The dub is surprisingly well voice-acted and atmospheric. There are still some instances where Japanese is overlaid into the film with an accompanying subtitle option that will only translate those particular sentences. One minor gripe is that this particular subtitle option will also give you the English translation of many of the film's Japanese songs as well.

A completely reworked English subtitle option for the Japanese audio track is present here, and omits the ridiculous work of the original DVD, which featured closed captioning instead of true subtitle work.

There are a few bonus features, including a grungy looking behind-the-scenes documentary detailing the themes and creation of the film. Interesting, but not really relevant unless you're dead curious.

The real shine comes in the video playback. The movie is bursting with crystal clear video and vivid, saturated color. I compared the Blu-Ray release to the standard def DVD, and the differences were alarming. Blu-Ray capabilities are utilized so well that I couldn't think of watching this movie any other way, from now on.

It's atrocious that a film this good is held back in it's rating because people are... Lazy? Narrow Minded? Rating this film badly based on the fact that you cannot be bothered to read subtitles is ridiculous.

No offense of course..

Personally I watch way too much anime, and English dubs are almost always, as a rule, quite terrible. I'm not sure what type of Anime your watching if your expecting a good dub.. or what type of grasp on the English language you have where dubs would suffice.
Personally whether or not English dubs actually exist on an Anime I find it better to watch it in it's natural language with English subs. That's the way it was created, things flow better without a messy cheaply done English dub clogging up a good movie. Not "all" Dubs are bad.. Just most.

So if your looking to get this because you enjoyed the first, then get it. It's an equal to Ghost in The shell. I'm not getting into the semantics of the plot.. GITS could be dissected for quite a time by much more aptly equipped people then I.. And they would come up with better conclusions.

Just trust that this is a good compelling film, that will intrigue and entertain you the entire time... But make sure you see Ghost in the Shell before you see this, Or you are really gonna be lost when this one starts.

And look people Subs May seem tedious.. But once you get used to them it becomes very comfortable to watch movies that way.

Format: DVD
I was anxiously awaiting a sequel to Ghost in the Shell. And when I heard the the long awaited sequel was on its way I could not wait to get my mits on it.
But I find that this Movie really falls short of what its predecessor was. And at times is reaching/streaching to be something that it is not.
Ghost in the Shell though short was an amazing movie that left a serious imprint on all of its viewers and not only caused as humans to tunr the lookin glass on ourselves and the direction that our technology has taken us.
Though Ghost in the Shell 2, has the leangth of a feature film the writing and at times pointless philisophical conversations have the relevance of stoners ramblings. Viewrs could have been spared the metaphorical, and at times painfull mental gymnastics.
and though there are many breathtaking scenes that meld both digital animation and traditional animaton into one. There just aren't enough of those Jaw dropping action sequences that had us all watching GITS1 over and over again.
the two action scenes in this movie are great but they are so far between and there is so much pointless BS you have to read through between them that chances are you will loose interest and shut this dvd off.
This could and should have been a classic instead its only a sequel, and a bad one at that. Though there are several shinging moments the picture is one that is dull and lacks luster overall
