    Visuals: 4.5 out of 5
    How do you like your anime? Crisp.

    Sound: 4.5 out of 5
    Sharp. With average headphones I can hear everything. Even the highs and lows, which often drop off, come through clearly.

    Menu: 1 out of 5
    The menu is functional. It sports an animated transition and a play button.

    Features: -1 out of 5
    This movie has no features. In fact it lacks the Japanese audio track with english subtitles. This in anime here...
    I gripe because the english dub is so deadpan flat in points that I roll my eyes BEFORE the scene comes up.

    Movie: 3.5 out of 5
    Before I get spammed for this, let me explain: This movie as a whole is NOT for everybody, and I don't mean children, the moralists and the queasy. I mean this movie is presented as a smart action flick, but comes off as but loses itself in the telling. Don't get me wrong, I loved this movie in it's day, but now, it comes off somewhat dull to me.

    Bottom Line: 3 out of 5
    For the action, you can't say no to GitS. It's full metal entertainment and one hell of a decent send-up of the original manga by Masamune Shirow.

    If you want a true intellectual anime, check out serial experiments: lain (on DVD or VHS). If you want gruesome action, Akira is your poison (also on DVD or VHS). For now your anime choices are limited, but growing.

    The movie itself I need not review further (there's a million out there and I already wrote one for when that version came out). IF enough people request it, I'd be happy to send them my original review (it's been dumped to paper as the server's HDD crashed and we lost everything; fortunately I printed most beforehand).

    PS - I'm not plugging those websites site as both are defunct.
