It is very much its own thing,

There's no Ghost in this Shell. Should just call it "Generic Cyborg Action Film".

If you are a die hard fan of the Manga or the anime then I think this incarnation might not be to taste. It does borrow sequences from the 1995 film but thank god it is not a Watchmen style recreation. The world building was incredible and the film for me very much has its own atmosphere which I was not expecting but thoroughly enjoyed. The visuals and cinematography are superb. The plot is soft enough to not be wrapped in star wars prequelesque dialogue scenes but does start to skim the surface of philosophy of GITS. Whilst I love the 1995 film, some of the sequels and the SAC series for me there can be moments when the existential debate and discussion can be a bit long in the tooth, especially for a film adaptation that is attempting to bring the series to a wider audience. The casting debate for me was total nonsense and implies a massive ignorance in the origins of Kusanagi and the choice of a generic cyborg shell. I am actually quiet happy with the origin of this interpretation of the character. Making a runaway with concerns about technological integration into a cyborg was for me a nice touch. There isn't a real twist in this film, more of a gradual unravelling as to what is going on which is also nice. Films relying on a M. Night Shyamalan style twist and reveal can become tiresome as a plot device, so the slow unwinding of what is going on is satisfying. The prop work from WETA was first class and I would say only twice did the CG pull me from the film. I hope the numbers for this film pickup because it definitely does not deserve the 6.8 it is currently on. I also hope that maybe some of the die-hards will give it a chance as this could be a great starting point for a series.

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

Firstly, let's get the metaphorical elephant out of the room by saying Scarlett Johansson did OK playing the Major. Next, the guy who played Batou did a better job.In some aspects, a decent live-action re-enactment of all the iconic scenes from the 90s anime. The effects guys, the camera and lights guys, set creators, make-up artists, costume makers and this Sanders fellow got the looks, feel and mood of the original GITS environments of the manga and anime series absolutely spot on. It's eye candy for fans who've wondered how GITS can be visually represented in a live-action film. That's all there is to have; everything else is just utter rubbish.This film is not worthy of the title, Ghost in the Shell, because apart from the visuals, there is no semblance of it to the source material that one can consider it generous to call this "a generic cyborg action film inspired by GITS". If we are to just listen to the dialogue, and all the character names are changed and Section 9 is called something else, we wouldn't have a clue that this film is adapted from GITS. The essence that makes GITS what it is in all its different incarnations (various manga and anime) is missing and we are left with bits of shallow musings about what it means to be human in a robotic body.So all in, if you're unfamiliar with the source material, it'll be a mildly interesting plod through a pretty but rather boringly paced sci-fi. Fans of GITS would probably wonder why bother to make a live-action adaptation if you're not going to put the spirit of the source material into the movie.

Opulent 3D SF - Do not believe Fan reviews

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.
