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!
