"An enjoyable adaption"
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

An interesting adaption/compi­lation of the original anime version which I loved. Appreciative of them including some of the iconic scenes from the anime versions. Cons Unfortunately they tried to cram everything into one film leading to some confusion at times. I think making one or more sequels and introducing more elements of the originals would have led to a better paced offering. Scarlett Johansson and the rest of the cast fitted the characters perfectly I felt. Overall very enjoyable rendition.

"Deep philosophical concepts hidden behind flashy action sequence"
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

This film has two very different levels at which it can be viewed, and this is the second time I have caught Ms Johansson doing a deep dive into a philosophically interesting story. “Lucy” is the other one. A cyborg with her human brain and altered memories finds that she is more human than she at first believed. It may be the distant future of the human species, but I think it will be a lot more difficult than the film makes it appear. The deep question of what makes us human is (I think) answered incorrectly at the end, but IS confronted directly. That is unusual.

I found it worth the time but I suspect it is not for everyone.

Description

In the near future, Major Motoko Kusanagi (Scarlett Johansson) is the first of her kind: A human saved from a terrible terrorist attack, who is cyber-enhanced to be a perfect soldier devoted to stopping the world's most dangerous criminals. When terrorism reaches a new level that includes the ability to hack into people's minds and control them, Major Kusanagi is uniquely qualified to stop it. As she prepares to face a new enemy, Major Kusanagi discovers that she has been lied to: her life was not saved, it was stolen. She will stop at nothing to recover her past, find out who did this to her and stop them before they do it to others. Based on the internationally acclaimed Japanese Manga, “The Ghost in the Shell.”

Reviews:

Politics aside, Ghost In The Shell takes the source material and turns it into something digestible and rip-roaring, gripping you to your seat full-throttle and never letting go. Patrik Sandberg – Dazed and Confused

Clad in a series of unforgiving, form-fitting futuristic outfits, Scarlett Johansson plays “The Major”, the latest in a long line of sexy female cyborgs, in this slick, action-stuffed, high-gloss remake of the cult classic 1995 anime feature. Jim Schembri – 3AW

Fantasy, reality, dreams & memories propel this visually stunning live action version of the cult manga to great heights, with Scarlett Johansson striking as the deadly weapon whose human brain is in sync with her curvaceous synthetic body. Louise Keller – Urban Cinefile
