In the near future, Major Mira Killian is the first of her kind: A human saved from a terrible crash, who is cyber-enhanced to be a perfect soldier devoted to stopping the world's most dangerous criminals.
In the near future, human organs are enhanced by the cybernetics technology developed by the powerful Hanka Robotics Corporation owned by Cutter. Dr. Ouelet is responsible for the development of the secret project 2571 of a full mechanical body to be connected to a human brain. She uses the brain of a young woman that lost her parents in a cyber attack as subject of a prototype. One year later, the woman is ranked Major and has joined Section 9, an anti-terrorist division commanded by Chief Daisuke Aramaki, working with agents Batou and Togusa. She needs to use a medicine to help the integration of her brain with the mechanical body and has no recollections of her previous life. When Section 9 hunts down the terrorist Kuze, Major learns the secrets about Hanka Robotics and the experiment she was subjected. Now she faces her ultimate enemy: Kuze, a criminal who has managed to hack into the brains of androids and control them.Written by

Although the film was shot in Wellington, New Zealand and the name of the setting is never mentioned, the city depicted is a highly digitized Hong Kong. For example, the dirty slum with narrow housing was Sham Shui Po and the splendid background when Major is in the boat was Hong Kong Island's Central. See more »
After Batou meets Major on the boat, they sail off towards the bridge but, when the camera switches to a wide shot, there is no wake behind the boat and it's not moving. See more »

As a Japanese person i feel Americans have not an idea about these ideas they re-made
But does American audience notice this or they think these remades are alright?
It is embarrassing that the story center is dead and not at all addressed but remade film is also focus more on making Japanese American and also make silly action scene.
Of course we don't really watch these remade films here so it is American problem.
