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."

Hello Mira. I'm Dr. Ouelet. Do you remember anything about the attack?
What happened? I was... I was drowning. There was water.
That's right. You were on a boat, a refugee boat. It was sunk by terrorists.
Why can't I feel my body?
Mira, your body was damaged. We could not save that. Only your brain survived. We made you a new body. A synthetic shell. But your mind, your soul... your ghost. It's still in there.

When it comes to getting high IMDb ratings this movie was already destined to fail just because it is an anime adaptation of a highly beloved nineties classic. On top of that the cast and yet another Hollywood whitewashing sh*tstorm.
Is this a perfect film? No. Some story elements were simplified to appeal to a broader audience and I would have done some scenes and dialogues differently. But overall it is a solid movie in the Sci-Fi genre. The atmosphere, effects, music and aesthetics are stunningly beautiful! You can still feel the heart and soul of Ghost in the Shell. The story is there - slightly changed but still thought provoking. There are many scenes where you can really see the amount of work that was put into making this movie - tiny details in the background, the aura of Hong Kong and other locations where this film was shot and just the overall look and feel.
If this wasn't an adaptation but an original film I'm pretty sure the ratings would look completely different and the critics would be positive only. Don't let negative ratings of super critical anime lovers stop you from seeing this movie! Especially if you have never seen the original Ghost in the Shell - now is the time.
