Movie Review: The Ghost in the Shell

Apr 9, 2017

In the near future, Major is the first of her kind: A human saved from a terrible crash,  who is cyber-enhanced to be a perfect soldier devoted to stopping the world's most dangerous criminals.



Ghost in the Shell was just okay.  I was so excited, thought it was going to be outstanding, it wasn't. It had some amazing visuals, an interesting glimpse of a futuristic world. It brought to mind Blade Runner right away, but the similarities ended there. You just can't really touch Blade Runner in my opinion. Besides,  I have a habit of comparing all futuristic worlds to BR. Scarlett Johansson did a marvelous job of bringing the Major to life. Overall it was good but not what I wanted.  I needed more. I think it comes from being a fan of the magma and the anime series. The movie had a lot of ground to cover and it didn't do it well. If this is your first taste of The Ghost in the Shell, then you may find the movie enjoyable.
