GitS 2017: Big disappointment!

Wed Apr 5, 2017, 4:29 PM

Finally the time has come: I've just seen the movie Ghost in the Shell and here are my immediate impressions.

Spoiler alert!

If you havent seen the movie yet, please do not read further.

I've been waiting for so long for a movie adaptation of the original anime and I am aware I may be (at least partially) biased by this fact.
I already knew it wouldn't have been an easy ride, but the truth is my ghost was torn when I came out from the cinema.

The movie is of course a sci-fi action movie with strong visuals. The imagery of the original anime, with big buildings, lots of cables, holograms, slums and ugly people is intact and enjoyable.
The main characters not so much. Chief Aramaki, although interpreted by Takeshi Kitano, is more a western-action Callaghan than a wise eastern chief (and I still can't tell why he's the only one speaking subtitled Japanese). Batou sadly lacks his deep voice. Scarlett Johansson simply doesn't have the "physique du role", Major's face is way too expressive in my opinion, and why the heck does she breathe?!?

In the end though, what really made me feel disoriented is the fact that, although they somehow managed to recreate (often perfectly) the scenes from the original anime, the movie plot was almost totally unrelated to that. That's so weird: seing familiar scenes with a completely different story.

Last, but not least, the strong and visionary themes of the original anime went totally lost, having being replaced by a standard - almost boring - seek-of-the-origins plot, stereotyped acting and poorly made action-centric screenplay.

These are the reasons why I feel much more disappointed than expected.

If you have different opinions, or simpy want to share your thoughts about the movie, please leave a comment below!
