    How can't you see anything human in this movie? guy down here is just exagerating. I think it's a good Sci-fi story about what does it really make us humans?

    And isn't a " super complicated plot" come on, it's the same old big-corporation-doing-dirty-stuff-plot; really simple plot, huge stuff to think about.

    And, obviously, really great visuals.

    I just finished reading Neuromancer, and wanted nothing more than to see a visualized version of it. Absurdly, decades after the novel first paved the way for cyberpunk, a movie version has yet to be made. This animated film is more than a sufficient substitute, however - dealing with many of the same themes (downloaded consciousness, artificial intelligence, computerized society, the cyborg, etc). Some great action sequences as well! 7 years ago

    I think probably I saw this movie 20 years too late. Though its level of visual detail is admittedly stunning, the existential questions posed by Kôkaku Kidôtai have since been more stylishly asked (and occasionally answered) by films like Ex Machina and innovations like IBM's Watson or Apple's Siri. I wonder whether the evil machinations of governments and corporations can seem novel after Coppola's The Conversation or regular doses of The X-Files. 3 years 10 months ago
