Release Date: May 19, 2017
Ok, I guess I should go into more detail than that. Ghost in the Shell is based on an older Japanese Manga / Anime. I haven’t seen the anime in a couple of decades, but I remember liking it so either this movie didn’t translate or was a poor remake because I don’t like this version. The CGI was good for the most part, but it wasn’t enough to save this very bland movie.
I like most of the actors in this movie, but there were mostly bad here so I will assume it was the direction. Scarlett has shown she can do action, but looked incredibly stiff here and it wasn’t because she was playing part robot. I didn’t get too upset at the “white washing” of the casting, but can see the issue with it and as much as I like Scarlett, the film would have been better served with a Japanese actress.
Rewatchability: Nope, Never.
