Starting 15mins of movie is good then some action sences and the concept of the movie is really nice
Visually stunning. That's about it. Lacking substance, especially if you've seen the original 1995 movie - many of the scenes are recreated exactly.
The biggest problem is that Ghost in the Shell has nothing smart or interesting to say — it just thinks it does.
If the ghost of anime classic Ghost in the Shell refers to the soul looming inside of its killer female cyborg, then this live-action reboot from director Rupert Sanders really only leaves us the shell: a heavily computer-generated enterprise with more body than brains, more visuals than ideas, as if the original movie’s hard drive had been wiped clean of all that was dark, poetic and mystifying.
Even though there’s an enormous amount to look at and digest, little of this film is truly memorable or thought-provoking.
