Ghost in the Shell (2017)
SciFi classics are rare
It's an entertaining movie, but fails to live up at being a stand-alone good SciFi that you will remember.
The anime source of the adaptation was considered an influence to the Matrix and other SciFi movies, this movie just seems a Matrix rip-off with some scenes that looked cool copied directly from the anime to give it credibility.
The pacing seems a little erratic . The depth of the message is lost, its no longer about what means to be human, and where you draw the line between machine and human and the dangers of future AI. It's just about a woman who gets revenge and finds her past.
The writers and directors have failed to produce a quality adaptation of the series. Leaving people who have not seen the original with a mediocre SciFi that they will forget in a couple of months and old fans who have seen the original with another example of cash-grabbing at a critically acclaimed foreign production.
