Ghost in the Shell

In the future, Mira (Scarlett Johansson) wakes up with only her mind intact after an accident; using a cybernetic body, she is now part of a task force thatā€™s trying to find out whoā€™s hacking a powerful corporation. This live-action take in 3D on the original manga and the 1995 animated movie changes a few details and tries to complicate The Majorā€™s background, yet still follows a predictable Hollywood formula without giving us something deeper to ponder. A few eye-popping visuals, and Johansson is obviously committed to her identity-relieved characterā€¦ but a lackluster ride it is.

2017-U.S. 106 min. Color. Directed byĀ Rupert Sanders. Comic Book: Masamune Shirow. Cast: Scarlett Johansson (Mira/The Major), ā€Beatā€ Takeshi Kitano (Aramaki), Pilou Asbaek (Batou), Michael Pitt, Chin Han, Juliette Binocheā€¦ Michael Wincott.

Trivia: Margot Robbie was allegedly considered for the lead.
