The tips of Major's hair are dyed a blue color which actually glows a purple shade during darker scenes. This is an intentional homage to the Major's hair color, which was purple, in the Stand Alone Complex TV series. See more »

Thank you, film makers and writers

I would like to extend my great thanks to the film makers and writers for producing such a good film. Masamune Shirow, Jamie Moss, William Wheeler, Ehren Kruger really had their work cut out for them when they all wrote the story as it was shot in the movie, each of them working independently. I am not here to give any spoilers so I will just try and keep to the original content. The movie is excellent, the actors really portrayed their characters well. Scarlett Johanson really did well and all the other actors really made me believe I was watching the original of so long ago. The CGI is just as good and I could easily believe what was produced was truth and not CGI. To comment on the story itself: (without giving spoilers) there was some things left out from the original content, which would have been nice to see if it was there, (but it didn't take anything away from the storyline).

The different story-lines, time-lines and content of the originals had way to many things that clashed and it is nice to see the way that the movie was produced, was where a lot of detail was actually left murky and that gave the story a chance to flow into each other. The movie also had a proper intro, body and ending, which left me as the watcher feeling complete. So this movie is a complete movie and could be left as is, but it also built a platform, so that more movies or story-lines could flow from here... So all in all I would say WELL DONE!!!
