Bladerunner2005's Ghost in the Shell Tv Review

Rated: 8

I can't say GITS as a movie is truly original. It takes many areas of content from other shows. Blade Runner was more original, written and directed far before GITS. I compare these two stories for a couple of reasons.

First, in GITS, as in BR, you see a character forced to interact with his/her environment because of duty, policy, and default skill. They have no way out, so they might as well kick some ass before they get kicked. Fallibility is present in both Motoko's and Deckard's written character, and we see it show up regularly.

Second, they're hunting. What makes a good police drama is how you get to follow the good guy down a dark path towards an eventual resolution. You don't know what, but you know that the story was written to HAVE a resolution.
