Ghost in the Shell is a 2017 American science fiction action film directed by Rupert Sanders and written by Jamie Moss, William Wheeler and Ehren Kruger, based on the Japanese manga of the same name by Masamune Shirow. The film stars Scarlett Johansson, Takeshi Kitano, Michael Pitt, Pilou Asbæk, Chin Han and Juliette Binoche. Set in the near future where the line between humans and robots is becoming blurred, the plot follows a woman who has her brain placed in a cyborg to become the perfect solider.
Visually stunning, detailed and vibrant. This film looks great. And… that’s about it. The story covers very old science fiction themes (what is a human). So story-wise, not that interesting. Little character interest and too much reliance on action and stunts.
