In this film, Major visits an apartment building looking for her past. When she arrives, she sees the name of the building on a card, "Avalon Apartments". It is a clear reference to Mamoru Oshii's Avalon (2001), which, at the same time, is strongly influenced by the manga and anime Ghost in the Shell. In this film, Ash, a player in a virtual reality video game, sense of reality is challenged as she attempts to unravel the true nature and purpose of the game.

Don't judge with an iron fist... see it for what its worth...
This movie does not deserve such a low score. I think this has to do with the fact that this movie wanted to please the new and the old. In doing so, it attracted low ratings from hardcore fans of the 1995 manga movie from one side and young teens who don't really understand the full depths of this movie. Simply put: too easy for old fans and too hard for young ones. For example I am a fan of the 1995 manga movie but I really liked this one even though it wasn't as deep as the first movie. But it was fun and clever nonetheless with good CGI action. The main character was absolutely fantastic. Personally I think she was perfect for the role.
