Storyline

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. Written by Paramount Pictures

Really good
1 July 2017 | by See all my reviews

In my honest opinion, I loved this movie. Maybe it's because I have a huge crush on Scarlett Johansson, but let's hope not. I thought everything, from the acting to the cinematography to the action, was amazing. It's definitely one of my favorites for 2017 so far.

I watched this without watching the original. I was going to at first, but gave up believing that I'll have expectations that are too high or get brainwashed somehow. I didn't want to review this movie as a live- action remake, but just a movie.

I wish I could go into more detail, but I have nothing more to say. I don't know if I recommend this movie or not in general, but give it a try if you like cyberpunk action movies or a fan of the original anime. Or just if you like Scarlett Johansson.
