Technology, a useful resource that has contributed to mankind and evolution for many years. With time man and machine start to become one with unlimited possibilities to create and evolve.
Sometimes fiction is not that far apart from reality.This is what Ghost in the Shell brings us with this live action adaptation that explores the meaning of being human.
As a big fan of the Ghost in the Shell universe I have to say this was my most expected film of the year, counting the days for its release and finally it is here, but did it leave up to the hype?
The Story: For those unfamiliar with the 1995 anime film Ghost in the Shell fear not, the story is well paced and easy to understand for newcomers and for fans this was a very special experience as the story has a new but at the same time familiar feeling that makes you say This is Ghost in the Shell.
Art: The futuristic world portrayed in this film is absolutely beautiful to look at, the CGI is so good that sometimes I forgot it was CGI, in my opinion they represented the world of Ghost in the Shell perfectly.
I was very happy with Scarlett Johansson performance in this film, she became the major and did an amazing job at it, not only is she beautiful but very talented to make one of the most well known characters in the history of the anime industry her own.
If you still have doubts about going to the movie theater to see this movie, please do yourself a favor and go watch it now you will not regret it. It is definitely an experience not to be missed.
