Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that Ghost in the Shell 2.0 is a 1995 anime that has graphic violence, frequent profanity (including "f--k"), and some nudity (females breasts and rear end). A man's head explodes from an assassin's bullet. Police die in machine-gun fire. There are car chases and accidents. It's a dark story, but it's also of such high quality (the "2.0" refers to added 3-D CGI and other visual technologies unavailable when the film was initially released in the mid-'90s) that it transcends its genres, and it's only gotten better with time. It explores themes of the intersections of technology and humanity, memory, and real versus simulated experience; older teen anime fans will have lots to ponder and discuss.
