In the near future, Major (Scarlett Johansson) is the first of her kind: A human saved from a awful crash, who is cyber-enhanced to be a ideal soldier devoted to stopping the world's most risky criminals. As terrorism peeks to somewhat Orwellian standards where people's minds are invaded and then controlled, Major Mira fights to stop it, only to realize she's been a victim the whole time.

The film itself samples storyline elements from TV series Ghost In The Shell: Stand Alone Complex S1 and S2. Discuss this oft-repeated line from Ghost in the Shell, with reference to Scarlett Johansson's digitally corrupted memories.

According to him, Johansson was very professional and very easy to work with. "She's essentially identity-less", Johansson said on "GMA" earlier this week, while Japanese filmmaker Mamoru Oshii argued "there is no basis for saying that an Asian actress must portray her". She wasn't turned into this soldier because she was about to die; she was about to die because somebody wanted to turn her into a soldier.

It may be facing backlash over concerns about whitewashing, but the show must go on - and, on Wednesday, it did.

IGN praised the film for taking creative liberties while holding true to the beloved franchise. But the film is so engrossing to see, the mediocrity of the narrative is not a deal killer.

Ghost in the Shell is visually astonishing.

Ghost in the Shell is based on a manga by Masamune Shirow, and also stars Pilou Asbaek, Takeshi Kitano, Juliette Binoche and Michael Pitt. He's even got a lead on The Major herself.
