Scarlett Johansson stars in the visually stunning Ghost in the Shell, an action-packed adventure set in a future world where people are enhanced with technology. Believing she was rescued from near death, Major (Johansson) becomes the first of her kind: a human mind inside an artificial body designed to fight the war against cyber-crime. While investigating a dangerous criminal, Major makes a shocking discovery – the corporation that created her lied about her past life in order to control her. Unsure what to believe, Major will stop at nothing to unravel the mystery of her true identity and exact revenge against the corporation she was built to serve.



  • It’s good but

    By Trepé
    It’s a good film but when compared to the original animé it’s shown up as a pale imitation. It isn’t as memorable and the themes aren’t explored quite as deeply. If you like SciFi you’ll enjoy it but you won’t feel much need to revisit it like you might the original.
  • Great film

    By Tig2810
    Really enjoyed this film.
  • Not the animated film

    By Shoot them in the face
    This is not the film or series at all . I am a huge fan of the anime film and series. The construction of this film is basically taking the names and concept and even title and making up a whole new story. If your a fan of the original anime like me you’ll be very annoyed with this film. If you’ve never seen any ghost in the shell anime this film is ok but the story is disjointed and you don’t feel for any of the characters. 3/5 for a stand alone film 0/5 for a remake of the anime they left out the standard issue big gun bit that’s worth one star on its own. Buy the original much better and actually refers to the ghost in the shell like its meant to.

  • Visually stunning

    By Chaz1837Sweeps
    I'm not an anime fan, so I'd never heard of this & I nearly didn't watch it because of that. I'm really pleased I rented this tho, it really is visually stunning & a good sci-fi storyline too. SJ pulls of a very complex character with grace, and an almost otherworldliness that is at times highlighted by her fluidly robotic walk. Overall definitely worth watching. A multi layered sci-fi thriller.
  • Good movie but classic Hollywood white washing

    By Bazey266
    Movie was quite good but, I hate the white washing. So many movies suffer from this. Give ethnic minorities a chance in a leading role, they will enrich the movies that are made, rather than just being another shell of a movie that will be forgotten.

    Visually stunning and complex. Interesting plot that raises some profound questions about technology. Undoubtedly a future classic up there with Blade Runner
