Hot hot hot!

Very slick animation, should be mind blowing in High Definition

Not that hot. A whole 9p cheaper than Amazon. It's been around that price for a while too.

not really...

9p cheaper than Amazon + Quidco is better than the Amazon price therefore HOT.

It does surprise me the amount of Amazon Fans / Staff that mark everything down that's not Amazon and feel the need to post negative comments.

I'm a little confused. Is this actually two films? Ghost in the shell 2.0 and Innocence are the same film, are they not? It was released as "Innocence" in Japan. Or is this two versions of the same film? Or is it the first film and second film?

Not really clear to me!

GITS 2.0 = GITS 1 but with some extras.

Two different films though Inncence is not a direct sequel, they are okay on blu ray but not Disney levels of quality for the animation/picture.

lol. I post a lot of negative comments, I do. Mostly at people who think because it's the cheapest price available that it's automatically hot. Clearly this isn't hot because the price isn't that good. I wasn't being an advocate of Amazon, I'd happily buy it from HMV or where ever, just not for 11 quid.

This place is for deals - not for listing the cheapest place to get every single item being sold in the UK. Perhaps you could create that site and put this on the front page. Come back and post it when it's 7 pounds.

Ghost in the Shell 2.0 is a remake (or, perhaps more accurately, a reproduction) of the original film using up to date CGI, rather than the original hand-drawn animations, with all the dialogue and soundtrack re-recorded and remixed. The second film should really only be titled 'Innocence', as it's called in Japanese (as Enchante said, it's not a direct sequel). They added 'Ghost in the Shell 2' and made 'Innocence' the subtitle to help market it. So yeah, it's somewhat confusing now that they've made Ghost in the Shell 2.0.

This is a hot deal however you look at it - essentially a fiver per film, which is good for any Blu-Ray (and if you want to be that pedantic about it, it's 31p cheaper than Amazon!). It's especially hot when you consider that it's just £1 more than the DVD version of this boxset. It's just a shame it doesn't include the original version as well (other editions of Ghost in the Shell 2.0 include the orignal, but I think this is just the 1 disk version). That would make it hotter.

Actually the price on Amazon has went up. It was 11.08.

Surely whether 5 pounds is good for a Blu-ray depends on many things? If it's an awful movie or an awful transfer to blu-ray then I wouldn't splash the cash.

Ghost in the shell is good, certainly. Looks fine but not exceptional in Blu-ray. I'd recommend it. Never seen Innocence.
I reckon Ghost in the Shell will include the original on the same disc - mine did when I had it, I'm sure.

It's been this price for a while and will probably not rise significantly in the future.
