Ouch. The visuals are breathtaking, as already shown by the trailers. ScarJo is trying, you can tell that she wants this to be her new franchise. It's edited quite nicely, it's got a (simple) story, and it's coherent. So where did it go wrong? One of the problems is that it takes away all of the philosophical depth from the original. Well, that means you can still enjoy it from a simple action flick perspective, right? Good luck with that. This film has such a ridiculous amount of exposition, that it badly hurts the enjoyment of the film. Many sequences consist of characters just talking to each other, and explaining the plot. Things are definitely shown, but then the filmmakers don't think we're able to put two and two together, and hence add another explanatory scene. As a result of that, the film doesn't take its time to develop the characters, meaning you won't care about them. Top it off with an awful performance from Juliette Binoche, and you have your modern style over substance film. 3.5/10

As someone unfamiliar with the source material, I found the story to be rather cliche and predictable, but the cinematography and overall visual feel of the film to be quite lush. See it as you would a painting: beautiful to look at but without depth.

Loved it, It takes stories and ideas from the TV show and the other films and mixes it in to a fun watch. This feels like an origin film with an idea towards expanding in to more, I hope this lights a fire under the Japanese media market as well to make more GITS films and TV Shows in the same spirits of the originals and for the western to keep making this live action that follows this western interpretation and building on the characters its set out in the film. I would recommend watching.

The atmosphere is impressive, the story somewhat different and simplified from the anime

Additional Comments: I personally would watch it again. I chose to give it an 8, but that's because I'm certain that the Bluray/UHD will have some of the backstory or extended scenes, and the 3D is worth the extra point over the 6 it earns as a movie.

The visuals and style give it a definite pop More

The film special effects of the scenes are breathtaking. And when a review starts with the special effects, the film has failed. The scenes special effects are so busy and take up so much screen time that they distract from the story. Director Rupert Sanders also must think that people who see his m More

When it comes to cinematography Ghost in the Shell is by far the best in some time, but story and acting wise it leaves a lot to desire.

The story is shallow and has plot holes the size of Grand Canyon. I know you can fit just so much in one and three-quarter hours, but this is ridiculous. I hav More

I am writing this review as someone who hasn't seen the original anime. I have also been very critical of the whitewashing of this film. With that I aside, I went to see it with willingness to give it the benefit of the doubt. "Ghost in the Shell" is well...a beautiful shell.

The visuals were ab More
