The live-action adaptation of the cult anime Ghost in the Shell is probably one of the most visually perfect films to grace our screens so far this year. It’s great to have some cyber punk to sink our teeth into again, but its poor attempts at provoking emotional responses and philosophical debate bring it down to your standard 3-star action film.
A little while ago there was a bit of whitewashing controversy over the fact that Scarlett Johansson had been chosen to play cyborg policewoman ‘The Major’ for the live action interpretation of Japanese anime Ghost in the Shell. It is a bit disrespectful considering that it’s a Japanese story. Miss Johansson who is good in an action role though and she’s certainly had her fair share. If you haven’t seen Avengers, you’re living under a rock. I personally prefer her in Lucy. Here’s the trailer…enjoy!
