Рецензии: Last night I had the distinct pleasure of viewing GHOST IN THE SHELL 2: Innocence in the Toronto International Film Festival.
I should note, like most fans of the original I was expecting a LOT from this sequel. I have to say I wasn't disappointed.
The use of 3D alongside 2D animation has been extremely popular in animation for the past couple of years, and though it was done well here, I'd like to see this trend disappear.
Technology wise, there was not as much of a "wow factor" as with the first film. The wow in the sequel was the long panning Neo-Tokyo shots, an elaborate parade, near perfect light interaction/reflection between 2D/3D elements. There were some neat technology scenes, like the assembly of the sex androids, but it simply did not have the same impact on me that it could have, had it been drawn traditionally. The android suicides, for example, blew me away. I've heard some people arguing about the long stand still scenes, where characters deliver a line and do nothing but stare for several seconds. This is NOT in fact "padding", these bits of timing are placed intentionally for comedic effect, or to allow the viewer the chance to let the words sink in. Sadly, most people will not follow the plot enough to take advantage of these moments.
Musically, this sequel surpasses the original. Though they have shared elements, including the theme, the music was powerful and perfectly utilized. One scene in particular felt like a very familiar Ketamine trip, the jerky funhouse style music felt out of place to me personally, which only added to the effect.
Plot wise it was exactly what I was hoping for. Without giving anything away, it is an extension of what the Major philosophized in the original, with new ideas expanded thoroughly without seeming heavy handed.
A welcome return of all the characters in a sequel that will not disappoint.
