Default Ghost in the Shell 2: Innocence Review

Released By: Buena Vista Home Entertainment Japan
MSRP: 7,800
Running time: 100 minutes
Aspect Ratio: 1.85:1 Widescreen
Resolution: 1080p
Encoded With: MPEG-2
Release Date: 12/06/2006
Review Date: 12/09/2006
Date Announced: 08/29/2006
Region: A - N. America, S. America, East Asia
Reviewed By: Chris Beveridge

In Summary:
A visual and technical masterpiece that will certainly show off just how far anime has come since its predecessor, Ghost in the Shell: Innocence unfortunately is a very formulaic story that's so highly infused with religious and philosophical discourses that they seemingly forgot to put in dialogue for much of the plot. While the US DVD release was probably one of the best looking anime releases out for that format, the film reaches a whole new level here. Its animation style and approach is quite different from that of Brave Story that we saw recently but this one again shows that anime can look amazing here. Buena Vista Japan did a solid job with the presentation of this film and has provided materials from a multi-disc DVD edition on a single dual-layered disc that is quite simply the reference version of this film.

Awesome! I just wish it wasn't $70 bucks. Not sure I can wait for a domestic release though. Who knows when that'll happen

Just got my copy in today! It is amazing! Innocence is worth every bit of $78 (S&H included). I would pay $100 for this if I had to!

Cool, hopefully the corrected version has non-SDH English subtitles. I used to have the DVD way back when.

Would be cool if it had a pitch-corrected version of the Manga UK dub, though probably not.

Watched it recently on DVD, it had been nearly 9 years since I had seen it last. Eh. Laughing Man series is actually better than this one, and nothing, NOTHING tops the original GitS. It is definitive. Anime would not exist in the West without Major Kusanagi. But for the collector, I can see why you'd want Innocence as well.

Innocence is a highly acquired taste. We're talking Tarkovsky levels of artyness here.

For the record, I personally liked Innocence better than the 1st GITS on initial viewings of both.
