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. Written by

I came into this movie not knowing anything about it, besides the fact that it was an adaption. I avoided trailers, news, and even the IMDb page, which is usually my bible and helps me decide on what movies I see. I was absolutely blow away. The look, the story, the acting, all spectacular. I enjoyed every second. I felt every emotion. I was amazed by every visual. I walked out of the cinema in awe. Then, I checked the IMDb page and was absolutely shocked to see it had a score of 6.9. This is a excellent example of why hype is a dangerous weapon, especially against adaptions or remakes. This really opened my eyes towards movie criticism and reviews. I urge everyone to do as I did more often, not give movies unrealistic expectations, and rip it to pieces when it disappoints you. Instead, put your preconceived notions behind you, appreciate the countless hours of work and incredible effort the filmmakers put in, and remember why we watch movies: to enjoy.
