Ghost in the Shell Description

Scarlett Johansson stars in the visually stunning Ghost in the Shell, an action-packed adventure set in a future world where people are enhanced with technology. Believing she was rescued from near death, Major (Johansson) becomes the first of her kind: a human mind inside an artificial body designed to fight the war against cyber-crime. While investigating a dangerous criminal, Major makes a shocking discovery – the corporation that created her lied about her past life in order to control her. Unsure what to believe, Major will stop at nothing to unravel the mystery of her true identity and exact revenge against the corporation she was built to serve.

Major Motoko Kusanagi is a beautiful but deadly cyborg that is squad leader of Section 9-the Japanese government's clandestine unit assigned to battle terrorism and cyber warfare. Surrounded by an expertly trained team, Motoko faces her ultimate challenge- the Laughing Man- a terrorist who orchestrated a kidnapping and extortion plot many years ago and has suddenly reappeared. In order to discover the identity of this enigmatic criminal, Motoko and Section 9 are drawn into a deadly labyrinth and they ll have to use all their expertise to survive.

Ghost in the Shell Movie Reviews

    For a long time, I've known of Ghost in the Shell, and it always seemed like something I'd be into, I just never got around to it. When this movie came out, I figured I'd give it a shot. Unfortunately, I can't tell if this movie assumes I know these characters already, if it was too rushed, or if the characters are just really shallow. I'm a fan of the Marvel movie franchise, so maybe I'm just used to very dense backstories. But, to me, it felt like this could've been a miniseries, with more exploration and explanation. The entire movie just felt rushed, like they were trying to tell a 5 hour story in 2. Everyone just seemed to immediately buy everyone else's story, without even slight hesitation or uncertainty. Weird. I guess if you're into fun mindless movies, it's visually entertaining. But I'd say almost any modern movie in this genre has more substance. Like, maybe even Pacific Rim has more character development than this movie did.
  • In a shell the movie was just OK!

    I feel these people were banking on the Avengers magic of Scarlet Johanson to be the glue of the movie. Which wasn't a bad thing but also was lacking what the animated version was about!

    This movie looked like a video game that was made into a movie. And the plot/writing felt like it was fabricated after the film was shot. There was so much potential here about the dangers of technology de-humanizing us but alas, it was all for not. A 1 star movie bumped up to a 2 star ONLY because of Scarlett running around almost nude. Shoot me, I'm a guy :-)
  • Good Rental

    It was a good rental, very dark and foreboding, but it wouldn't surprise me if this ever came to pass, especially if liberals ever got total control of America and our government..Everything that would apply to the cattle and us sheep wouldn't apply to the elite ruling class, known as corrupt liberals.

    it really wasnt that terrible as everyone says it is. It is kind of cliché and has alot of fan service. If youre a fan of the original it will probably be easier to get into. it's not great but its isnt terrible.

    I haven't seen the original. If this is anything like that then I am glad I didn't.
  • Just Bad

    It was just a complete waste of time to watch this movie. Furthermore, anyone else giving this more than 3-stars are studio employees/third-party writers. Don't "buy" the hype.

    I tried. I really did. I thought i could watch thi movie. And think oif it as a Stand alone movie apart from the Anima. But it just didnt work. This isn't the worse pile of dribble i have seen Hollywood do. But have some sense in the head. We anima fans/manga are what made G.I.T.S pupular. If you f with it too much. we the people wil stand agaisnt it. if you have never seen Ghost In the Shell the anime. And you liked this one and are sick of us saying it was trash. Find the original and see for your self why we hate it. if you do and syill think we are wrong............. I have nothing more to say too you.
