Ghost in the Shell Movie Review – another view
More a prequel to Oshii's film than a remake, the story relates the origins of Major Motoko Kusanagi (Scarlett Johansson) and also a little bit of her partner, Batou (Pilou Asbæk). The film riffs heavily off Oshii by lifting sequences directly from his film (hence why, on the surface, this appears to be a remake) and recreates them in the live action format - a relatively easy task with our contemporary special effects technology. It's interesting to see how Sanders has applied these ...

Having said that, the depth of almost all the characters in this version are condensed to a fairly basic level. The film feels very Hollywood and the film’s makers could have shown a bit more trust that the modern audience can digest and enjoy more complex narratives.
Touching on universal truths and the themes of what ...
