Instructive, as in "how to make bad decisions, then get disastrous results" - that is (relative to some comments here), THAT is what the dialog is for. We extend hope, we give up, we extend hope again... then... SPOILER ALERT: not the ending we wanted after all the trouble. Could be a set up for a part II (?)

It's hard not to compare with the original film and I struggle with the decisions for casting in this film as a result I only gave this film three stars.

I enjoyed this one. I can see why it took two years to make it due to the special effects in the story.The main character makes some statements close to the end of the film about "the ghost in the shell"that I take as a christian to be about the soul.

Visually stunning, mentally void -bursts of action between long boring scenes of dialogue, minimal plot.

Too long, too slow, and the CGI was too often really terrible - plus, why are almost all of the lead characters Caucasian when the story is set in Japan???

I thought there would be more to it.
Acting was fine. Bit slow in some parts. Fighting scenes were cool.
The final bit was almost like a lame boss battle though

I enjoyed it but admit its depth is PG-13 like "Star Wars". It's a tame sequel to "Blade Runner" (1982 original), "under the skin", "terminator series". It substitutes visual concrete context for disturbing abstract depth

"You are more than just a weapon. You have a soul... a ghost. When we see our uniqueness as a virtue, only then will we find peace." - Aramaki

Find many memorable quotes in IMDb already, these two in particular:

You are more than just a weapon. You have a soul... a ghost. When we see our uniqueness as a virtue, only then will we find peace.
===
We cling to memories as if they define us, but... they really don't. What we do is what defines us.

For visual quotes on the striking locations in Hong Kong and New Zealand, there are many in the net. Here are two I like:
