Description

In the near future, Major Motoko Kusanagi (Scarlett Johansson) is the first of her kind: A human saved from a terrible terrorist attack, who is cyber-enhanced to be a perfect soldier devoted to stopping the world's most dangerous criminals. When terrorism reaches a new level that includes the ability to hack into people's minds and control them, Major Kusanagi is uniquely qualified to stop it. As she prepares to face a new enemy, Major Kusanagi discovers that she has been lied to: her life was not saved, it was stolen. She will stop at nothing to recover her past, find out who did this to her and stop them before they do it to others. Based on the internationally acclaimed Japanese Manga, "The Ghost in the Shell."

Movie Critics
A.V. Club
"From the blocking and editing to the scientifically impossible coiffure, director Rupert Sanders mimics the styling of Japanese animation, turning the film into its own beguiling meditation on all things synthetic." -- Grade: B
Ignatiy Vishnevetsky (30 Mar 2017, )
Chicago Sun-Times
"Just about every scene in GHOST IN THE SHELL is a visual wonder to behold."
Richard Roeper (31 Mar 2017, )
Empire
3 stars out of 5 -- "[A] cogently constructed entertainment. Director Rupert Sanders is an adept world-(re)builder and visualist..."
Dan Jolin (29 Mar 2017, )
Entertainment Weekly
"[V]isually stunning; a glittering, menacing dystopia set in an unnamed Asian metropolis that looks like BLADE RUNNER with a billionaire’s budget and the benefit of 30 additional years of film technology." -- Grade: B
Leah Greenblatt (30 Mar 2017, )
Los Angeles Times
"[A] dystopian noir-thriller with no shortage of striking sequences..."
Justin Chang (30 Mar 2017, )
The Guardian
4 stars out of 5 -- "The main selling point here is the film’s breathtaking visual impact....It’s a thrillingly sordid world..."
Wendy Ide (2 Apr 2017, )
Total Film
3 stars out of 5 -- "It’s the most staggeringly detailed and impressively realised sci-fi location since James Cameron welcomed audiences to Pandora..."
Total Film Staff (30 Mar 2017, )
Washington Post
"The movie is often lovely to look at, its ultramodern metropolis setting a hive of holographic billboards, personal-media bubbles, seductive neon and classical Asian design elements."
(30 Mar 2017, )
