Hollywood doesn't really have a great track record when it comes to doing live action films based on anime. Only twice have they accomplished in doing great adaptations with Speed Racer and Guyver: Dark Hero. So in comes Ghost In The Shell which despite it being a film thats all fluff and no substance, it manages to also not being an entirely horrible film. Overall what we have is a very paint by numbers film that hits the fanservice stuff from the anime but doesn't nail the deep philosophical stuff the 95 movie, manga and even the tv show did.
3BG rating: 2 out of 5
