Storyline

In the near future, Major (Scarlett Johansson) 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. When terrorism reaches a new level that includes the ability to hack into people's minds and control them, Major is uniquely qualified to stop it. As she prepares to face a new enemy, Major 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." Written by Paramount Pictures

Trivia

This film's production was met with controversy over the choice to cast the lead role of Major Motoko Kusanagi (a Japanese character in the original source material and previous adaptations) as white, with the role going to Scarlett Johansson. Online protests over Hollywood whitewashing flared up in April 2016 when Paramount Pictures released the first promotional image of Johansson in costume. The anger toward her casting was exacerbated by reports that Lola VFX, the company behind the character-aging effects in The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (2008), was commissioned to manage tests on visual effects to make white actors look Asian, though the results were reportedly rejected immediately upon their review.

Reviews for a movie that isn't even out yet?!?
28 March 2017 | by See all my reviews

Its amazing how a movie that has not even been released yet already has user reviews, all from anime fans that can't handle the fact that their niche hobby is being introduced into the mainstream as live action. Obviously the movie won't be as good as the 1995 original mainly because the studios want to reach more people instead and also because it is easier to do a lot more for less in animation vs. live action. If you are angered that it isn't as good as the 1995 movie, then please stay home and watch the original and not ruin the movie going experience for normal and new fans who will look at these ratings and decide the movie isn't worth watching.

Please take all your complaints to anime forums instead of those used by the general public.
