Evan “Kaizō Haya-shill” Pincus’s review published on Letterboxd:
I can almost see why this got remade- not that there are problems with it (if there are they're minimal at best), but it's just damn good science fiction, and I understand why the western film industry wanted a piece of the pie. Now, of course, I've heard mostly negative things about the remake, so clearly it didn't do it as well as one would hope, but this review isn't about that. This review is about one of the best sci-fi movies of the 90's. Ghost in the Shell is gorgeously animated, well paced, and again, a really damn solid sci-fi story. That's all I've really got to say about it- it's very good and I highly recommend it! Will it stick with me? That remains to be seen, but I wouldn't be surprised!
