A.D. 2034. It has been two years since Motoko Kusanagi left Section 9. Togusa is now the new leader of the team, that has considerably increased its appointed personnel. The expanded new Section 9 confronts a rash of complicated incidents, and investigations reveal that an ultra-wizard hacker nicknamed the "Puppet Master" is behind the entire series of events.
Hannah's comments: Actually, you can say this is a long version of an episode from the tv-series. But this is a film. Well, mostly good, but parts of it, I had too much of participating in a computergame. Story itself, well... goes back to who the Puppeteer really is. Strange odd way from missing children , elder people who a in a way buy those children, to "why on earth" has puppet master to do with this? For me, it only seems a political thing. Even from the first episode of the tv-series, to this film, Ghost in the Shell - (Stand Alone Complex) - Solid State Society, nothing to do with one man. Maybe I have misunderstood the whole idea. But good (yes, good, in a strange way). Music as you expect when you watch military series. But the music is more soft, than the music to Fullmetal Panic. But as always, the first films , are the best! No doubt about that. Anyhow, the Ghost in the Shell - (Stand Alone Complex) - Solid State Society is worth watching. You have to, if you already watched all films+series before.
