Ghost in the shell for dummies

Maybe I had my hopes too high for this one. Like many other fans of the original material, this adaptation has intrigued me since the first trailers were available online, because it really looked nice visually, but, Is this movie worth to be part of the GitS universe?

- Short answer: Not really. Not even nice try.

- Long answer: The cinematography its truly remarkable, it somehow reproduce the atmosphere of the original anime, the decaying, depressing, dark megalopolis is correctly reproduced here (despite the giant weird advertisements that are spread around, that doesn't really make any sense, and didn't appear in the anime, what are they trying to sell?), the costumes, robots, and the general look and feel of the characters are quite satisfying and solid. The music is not bad at all, includes some of the original score and it work towards creating a dense and dark environment. The acting is standard, not bad at all. The script is.... ohhh boy, let me breath... to use nice words, the script seems to be written addressed to children or to very 'slow' people. All the rich complexity, all the mature and philosophical themes, all the sides of the story that the original material let out to be imagined by the viewer, all that is gone here. Here you can find a bland, generic script, that explain a generic origin story, that never tries to get into the philosophical or ethical implications of human body enhancements or AI. Where the characters are one-sided, good vs bad people. We are use to that over-simplification of a movie plot, since we sadly live in a world conquered by the 'marvel'/'batman' method of making a movie, where the plot should be simple and thin, the characters shouldn't have any grays and the action should be convoluted and confusing, full of minions to destroy for the sake of fill 100 minutes (well at least this adaptation has correct action scenes, that are easy to follow and most of the time are not annoying). To wrap up, a correct movie, that shines in the visual and action sides, but has a forgettable script and characters. It will probably perform good in the box office, and that worries me because what could come next, it will be really sad to see how they reduce Akira, Jin-roh, Evangelion or Cowboy bebbop to a generic action blockbuster without any of the things that made those stories great.

If you're a fan, go and see it. If you're not, go and see it.

I have just seen the movie at an advanced screening. I'm writing here because, somehow, there are already 34 baseless reviews from people who haven't seen the film. I registered immediately to rectify that situation.

I was truly concerned that this movie wouldn't satisfy me as a fan. Even though the accusations of whitewashing were baseless to begin with, I was concerned that they may have westernized or washed out some of the GITS flavour that I know and love.

To me, this film was fantastic. I went in expecting to be disappointed and I came out grinning ear to ear. I laughed as I watched Aramaki be a down right bad ass. The relationship between Major and Batou was freakin' spot on. There's a lot of philosophy to represent, and that's not easy to do in a movie designed to capture and keep attention, but they did it. The fan service was brilliant and I loved it. It was visually stunning. The soundtrack was wonderful. Scarjo was an excellent study of the Major. It was not tacky or cliché at all.

Please, do not listen to the inevitable vapid borderline insulting "critiques" that you'll no doubt uncover by the various news media who were targeted with pumping out a review for a movie they genuinely don't give two shits about. This movie won't be for everyone. It's scifi. It's intellectual. It's not everyone's cup of tea.

But it's good. It's a classic. And I, for one, am genuinely gratified and impressed. Good work.

A great western take on a Japanese classic

I've watched both GITS films, Stand Alone Complex series and read the manga. As expected, things didn't reach so far into a philosophical sphere and at times spelling out the "dilemmas of existence for dummies" took a little from the atmosphere of the film.

But, as far as bad things go, that's about it. CGI were mostly spot- on, only one or two scenes pulled me out of immersion. As a big plus, the film took some time to actually present the world itself without jumping to action. Side characters were great, I enjoyed Aramaki and Batou the most, Togusa, Saito and Ishikawa didn't have much screen time, but still delivered.

Now, Johansson as the Major, I know a lot of fuss was there about whitewashing, I don't care about SJW thing, what matters to me if an actor/ess can act the role and IMO she was a great choice. In most scenes she behaved exactly like her character should, it didn't feel forced or overacted to me.

And for the plot itself, I'm not saying it was fresh or never seen before thing, but it was a nice take and it brought something to the franchise. IDK if it makes official canon, but in my head it already is.

I hope this review helps you, it is my first and I've done it because I feel that 6.9 stars is a lot less than this effort deserves.
