Stunning animation and a gripping story line, BUY THIS MOVIE!~!
One of the most amazing anime's to date. There's nothing but incredible action sequences and real drama that makes you forget you're watching a cartoon! I can say nothing negative about this DVD because there was nothing negative about the whole experience.

I haven't received it yet but I've owned it before. It is an awesome movie. A masterpiece of science fiction storytelling and a touching story which asks questions at the heart of each of our souls as to what it means to be human. If you haven't seen it you're missing out.

It is an interesting movie that fits perfectly in the AI and Manga stuff. No sex scenes, but some nudity in the form of a robot, so, it doesnt count. This is one of this anime movies where a lot of time is used in what the characters are thinking or analyzing. i like that.

I have seen Akira. I have seen the GITS Standalone Complex. This movie blows all the Anime movies I have ever seen away by several orders of magnitude! The unique atmospheric qualities like dramatic pauses, theatrical score, and just the general mood of the film itself are all top notch. I would try to compare it to another movie, but would do neither film justice by doing so.
I strongly recommend this film to everyone, but it is NOT to be confused with children's cartoons! It may be difficult for a child or young teen to understand or properly interpret this film, but otherwise it is now #1 on my list of Anime Faves!
