The wonderful story is intact, but why does this exist? The original is just slightly better in that it doesn't have random bad CG. There's nothing special to make this version stand out.

Pointless Remake.Reviewed byinvisibleunicornninjaVote: 5/10
GITS is one of my favourite films, and one of the first DVD's I bought when the format was new on the scene. After watching Innocence (which looked great), I was quite ready to see something totally awesome in this update. I was wrong.
As another comment said, they should have re-done the whole film, instead of a bit here and there. I couldn't enjoy the movie when it kept switching from CGI to cel-shaded animation. Also, considering this was made FOUR years after Innocence, the CGI is awful. Most of the time Motoko looks like a plastic doll. Not cool.
The music and sound effects were re-done, sometimes better, most times not. In the original GITS if somebody was getting beaten up, you would hear them scream. In 2.0, a guy gets his ankle broken and doesn't even let out a whisper. Stupid. The main theme song (the choral piece) was re-recorded and it too lost a lot of impact.
Don't bother with this. Just watch the original.
I gave this 1 star out of 10, not because the story sucks or anything,but because this was a completely unnecessary waste of time and effort.
Here's the idea: take one of the greatest animes ever produced andre-draw certain shots with new CGI. Then intercut them with theoriginal animation.
The new CGI is very well done; unfortunately, it doesn't match theoriginal artwork at all, and tends to distract from the overall film.It's like having someone slap you every few seconds.
One other reviewer mentioned that this seemed like something GeorgeLucas would do, and if you saw the "new" Star Wars films that came outin the 1990s with added scenes and (crappily done) CGI, you've had ataste of what was done with GITS 2.0. But imagine if the original wasin B&W and the new scenes were not just in color, but completely CGI.That's how jarring GITS 2.0 is.
If the creators wanted to do something with the new CGI technology thatexists, they should have come up with a new idea, not tried to re-hashan old movie. They aren't even "re- imagining" it, they are just doingit over again. It's as if an artist working with charcoal discoveredwatercolors, and then tried to paint over all his old works. This was aterrible idea.
My advice is to forget that this movie exists, and just watch theoriginal.
