The Live Action ‘Ghost in the Shell’ is not an exciting film in any way
I have never had the chance to watch any of the Ghost in the Shell anime’s before, but I have heard good things about them. When I heard of the live action film, I thought it looked pretty good. I like Scarlett Johansson, so I decided to check this film out. I was able to see it early and here is what I thought of it.
You can read the plot for Ghost in the Shell here:
Cyborg counter-cyberterrorist field commander The Major (Scarlett Johansson) and her task force Section 9 thwart and humiliate criminals, hackers and terrorists. Now, they must face a new enemy who will stop at nothing to sabotage Hanka Robotics’ artificial intelligence technology.
I was thoroughly bored watching Ghost in the Shell. It was poorly written which makes for a pretty dull story. This affected the plot which made a good movie turn into an unexciting one. Scarlett Johansson does her best here, but with little to work with it really drags down her performance. The only good thing about this film are the special effects. They really bring this world to life and make it look dark, mysterious and imposing. If you want to learn more about Ghost in the Shell click on this website.
Ghost in the Shell gets 3/10. It just isn’t a good movie. It tries really hard to be, but no matter what it did I found it to be quite boring. There really just isn’t many things that are good about this live action film. Some people may like it, but they are few and far between.
