[6.25/10] Ghost in the Shell [3D] (2017)

Ghost in the Shell (2017)

Quick Review: Vivid on the outside if empty within, "Ghost in the Shell" lives up to its title in some way -- the bright, neon-y colors contrast nicely with the gloomy tone, and the digital world is striking, but this cyberpunk affair is cool only during its stylized, 3D-enhanced action, and rather dull beyond that, due to a lackluster plot and a tone-deaf script that not only fails to captivate the essence of the Japanese manga, but also limits the miscast Johansson, who's big efforts barely pay off in the end.

A Japanese cartoon is an original work for this,
An original work is also read, and it's very wonderful.

This one kept slipping lower and lower on RT so by Friday afternoon, we decided to skip it.

I would give it a go if I were you. It's worth seeing on the big screen for the visuals alone. Those are absolutely striking!

Yes, I'm aware of that.
Thanks for the kind words, Kazu! :)
