Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Action Drama Sci-Fi - This is a science fiction action/adventure/mystery inspired by the cult favorite Japanese comic book and animation series. Fans of Scarlett Johansson should enjoy while fans of the original material may be disappointed by both her casting and the completely different main plotline. Language is at a minimum and the violence is not bloody nor overly graphic, but some of the action sequences and imagery may be too intense and disturbing for young kids.

Critic's Review Heading

Roger Ebert Full Review
Average At times, "Ghost in the Shell” is beautiful, even stunning. But these visual pleasures can't mask the narrative emptiness. Never has there been a film so obsessed with the human soul that proves soulless itself.

USA Today Full Review
Below Average Despite the beautiful eye-popping world it creates, the sci-fi film Ghost in the Shell is a defective mess with lifeless characters, missed chances for thematic exploration and a minefield of political incorrectness.

NY Post Full Review
Average Like its synthetic heroine (Scarlett Johansson), the live-action "Ghost in the Shell” is a feast for the eyes. With its killer-robot geishas, Godzilla-size hologram ads and nearly nude fighting gear, it's a cyberpunk wonderland — but there isn't much ghost left in this smokin' hot shell.

Slant Magazine Full Review
Good ...a rare breed of tech-minded blockbuster that radically engages with the conditions of the zeitgeist, while also working as a pastiche of notable science-fiction films from the last 35 years... ...the primary pleasure of the film resides in its awareness of the impossibilities of unity, whether physical or cultural, within a rapidly transforming global milieu.
