I haven't seen the material "Ghost in the Shell" (2017) is based on, so this is a short review of a movie itself seen open minded.
I liked the story in here - its not your by the numbers sci-fi story. I loved the overall mode of the movie - its a good work by director Rupert Sanders. Pacing was also very good - at running time 1 h 45 min this movie never dragged. Visually this film looks stunning, kinda reminded me a bit of a "Blade Runner". Performances weren't that good, best were by Takeshi Kitano and Pilou Asb脱k. Michael Pitt - actor who enjoy a lot was not enough used in here i think, and Scarlett Johansson - this is not the performance she will be remembered for - it was just OK.
Overall, i did enjoy "Ghost in the Shell" more then i thought i will. It has a descent story, great pacing, involving mood and great visual style. Good movie overall. This film is simply a poor copy cat, neither an homage nor a creative remake. A deeply thoughtful cyberpunk film downgraded to a cheesy kitschy revenge film. Another visually stunning, logical, extremely predictable, shallow and superficial film from Hollywood.
If they wanted to make a completely new story line better suited for American audiences, they should have done without copying the same scenes and music. I felt destroyed when they played the exact Kenji Kawai's original music score at the end. Wow. No shame, no thoughts, the only objective being maximizing the profit. Period. 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
