Ghost in the Shell (2017) – in cine­mas from Fri­day, April 7

Ru­pert San­ders is back again with the live ac­tion re­make of the ac­claimed Ja­panese film Ghost in the Shell, which talks about a fu­ture in which hu­mans can en­hance them­selves with ro­botic parts.

The movie fol­lows the story of Ma­jor (Scar­lett Jo­hans­son), a woman whose body is 100% ro­botic, but her brain is hu­man. She is 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 is uniquely qual­i­fied to stop it. As she pre­pares to face a new en­emy, Ma­jor dis­cov­ers that she has been lied to, and her life was not saved. In­stead, 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.

The film is based on the fa­mous Ko­dan­sha Comics manga se­ries of the same name, writ­ten and il­lus­trated by Masamune Shi­row. Com­pared to the orig­i­nal, the film, is very easy to un­der­stand, ev­ery­thing is ex­plained, ei­ther visu­ally or in the script.
