Ghost in the Shell

Ghost in the Shell ★★★★

Much better than feared, the Hollywood remake of Ghost in the Shell fittingly expands the mythos of the main character and her crew, takes inspiration from the techno visuals of the original, and makes what was already a cool but plotting story into a fast-paced eye-searing action spectacular. If you wanted the slow-paced anime from 20 years ago in live-action form, this aint it-mostly. Whether that's a good thing or a bad thing is up to you.
