Ghost In The Shell (2017) – A Quick Capsule Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Now I have zero attachment to the anime Ghost In The Shell.  Never seen it. So I can judge this on it’s own terms.  And on it’s own terms is actually pretty good.  Visually one of the best films of the year (and a few others) it’s killer production design and solid central performance by Scarlet Johansson as the Major stand out in what is a pretty traditional Hollywood action film. Fans of the anime may differ but there’s a lot to enjoy here.

Best Bit: Spider Tank!

Buy, Stream, Avoid: Stream

If You Liked this Try: Ghost In The Shell (1995), The Matrix, Hackers

IMDB Rating: 7 out of 10 stars
