Ghost in the Shell (2017)

US 106m, Colour
Director: Rupert Sanders; Cast: Scarlett Johansson, Michael Carmen Pitt, Pilou Asbæk, Chin Han, Juliette Binoche

A live action remake of the classic 1995 Japanese animated science film of the same name, Ghost in the Shell is the retelling of Masamune Shirow’s story of Major Motoko Kusanagi, a cyborg who discovers her true identity while working for a counter cyber-terrorist organization. As Motoko, Johansson is the embodiment of her animated character’s look and style. In focusing more on action and entertainment, and less on existential issues, Sander’s re-make does not quite capture the essence and depth of the original story (Klaus Ming August 2017).
