John R. Jones - Feb 26 2012
Mindblowing action and backstory
Brace yourself and prepare to have your expectations shattered. Careful, detailed art merges with a gripping and complex storyline, and action, plenty of action.

Dark, Odd, Slick, Cool !
It’s an interesting futuristic world, with an Interesting Justice System. It’s got a vive about it that is hard to pin down.( but I like )
The female lead “Balot” is an abused and very emotionally scared Girl that has decided in the end.. Revenge is a dish best served “BY HER!”
And this Directors Cut only made it that much better. I’m now so emotionally invested in Balot’s plight, I can’t wait to see what’s coming next.

A new "Ghost in the Shell"
When i started to watch Mardock Scramble the first thing that gripped me was the quality of the art work and immediately i remembered the first time i watched Ghost in the Shell. everything that made ghost in the shell an unparalled hit is present in this film. detailed artwork, amazingly complex storyline, a whole new justice system and fantastic technology are just the basics of the film. characters are very well constructed and voiced over.
if you liked ghost in the shell and/or cowboy bebop the movie, you will definately enjoy this film.
i watched the directors cut only so i don't know what was extended but i know it shouldn't be a minute shorter. i just saw that the second part is also out so i know what will be in my cart for the new year.
there are adult situations so if you are offended by that then be advised.

Rent for now
What a great movie. The animation was top notch, the story was intriguing and then... nothing. None of the literature or ads mentioned anything about this being the first part in a three part movie series. The movie is about a young prostitute who is set to testify against one of her more high profile clients and he tries to kill her. She is saved by a sympathetic doctor/mad scientist and is turned into a partial cyborg to save her life. She is given an A.I. to accompany her and to train her in all her new abilities, as well as watch over and protect her. I adore Sentai Filmworks films but until they pick up the pace and get the other two films released I cannot in good conscience recommend this movie for any more than a rental or borrow.
