Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex 3
Alex: If there’s one thing that can be said about this movie, it’s that I really love the Major and her subtle quirks . But okay…
Ghost in the Shell 3 takes place a while after the previous series ended, with the Major left to wonder if what Kuze was saying was right or not. Clearly influenced by this, she leaves Section 9 to wonder the Net for 2 years, becoming an individual investigator and solving cases if they appealed to her. However, when her and Batou are reunited, Section 9 has to wonder if she is the “Puppeteer”, the master terrorist behind the biggest plan Section 9 has faced yet.
The Laughing Man blackmailed people and become a net legend. The Individual Eleven wanted freedom for the refugees. The Puppeteer turns children into living bombs to detonate whenever he pleases.
But, what is there to say which wouldn’t be repeating myself from my last two reviews? Just like the previous Ghost In The Shell series, this movie is a roller-coaster of plot twists, character development, and some very awesome action.However, it couldn’t have lived up to the brilliant climax of SAC2 and falls just slightly short of the bar.If you’re a fan of sci-fi, politics, or masterpiece anime, why havn’t you finished GITS:SAC yet? It’s just that good. Now i’m gonna go live my fanboy life hoping for more installments in the franchise…D;
