There's a couple of new CGI sequences that replace traditional animation of the original Ghost in the Shell (GITS), mostly at the beginning. I found these unncessary, but the updates to vehicles and buildings are fantastic. One of the helicopters looks like a hammer-head shark!

My favourite feature of GITS 2.0 is the updated sound effects. Guns, vehicles, blasts: all sound more realistic and varied. I was surprised how much more I enjoyed the movie just because of the new sound mix.

Not normally a fan of "special editions"; remember the awful new English dub for the Akira DVD release? I don't imagine The GITS 2.0 edition will upset die-hard fans of the original, but don't get rid of your "1.0" copy by any means.

What most other reviewers have left out is that this bluray comes with both the cgi added version and the original version.

The only disappointment I had with this bluray is that both movies were not remastered to a clear 1080p picture (where as all other anime bluray movies I have purchased are remastered) and the original version audio is only in stereo.

If you already have a dvd copy, then this bluray might not be for you. If you don't already own this movie, it is a great movie and definitely worth owning (but watch the original version first).

This gets 4 stars for just the original Ghost in Shell. The 2.0 version is alright. But I still prefer the original.

I think that George Lucas demonstrated best that digitally altering films made long ago to make them 'better' generally fails (excluding THX 1138 as those improvements genuinely improved the story and appearance of the film).
The upgraded CGI in the film is neither here nor there in value. Another reviewer commented on the improved renditions of vehicles in the film, but I don't really find that it brings enough to the table to justify these digital modifications.
In the end, I feel that they actually didn't do nearly enough which is what makes these supposed improvements so lack-luster. Quite genuinely, they failed from lack of effort than anything.

Ghost In The Shell is definitely a classic Anime film and will always have a special place in my collection, but, next time I dig it out to watch, I'll more than likely pull out the copy I've owned for years already.

Was excited that this was on bluray but the 2.0 version wasn't for me. The original is also on the disc but it resembled the dvd version, ie no touchups.

The opening cg scene wasn't better than the original. It wasn't bad but I preferred the hand drawing being more loose, the lines are more organic.

This is the show that got me started in anime. Now I finally have my own copy to watch whenever I want. A great addition to my collection.
