Ghost In The Shell Movie Review

In the twenty-eight years since Masamune Shirow first published his manga Ghost In The Shell, this cyberpunk story has been adapted into an animated movie (also called Ghost In The Shell) that inspired a sequel (Ghost In The Shell 2: Innocence), an anime TV series (Ghost In The Shell: Stand Alone Complex) that got its own movie (Ghost In The Shell: Stand Alone Complex: Solid State Society), and a second animated series (Ghost In The Shell: Arise) that, of course, had a movie of its own as well (Ghost In The Shell: The New Movie). But what makes the new live action version of Ghost In The Shell unique is not just that it’s the first adaptation that wasn’t drawn (obviously), but how it remixes elements from the animated adaptations into something new and cool.
