Synopsis

Cyborg agent Major (Scarlett Johansson) lives in 2029 futuresque-Japan, where artificial intelligence is more real than reality itself. Although Major is aware of what she is, she knows that she was once a human, and longs for the ability to experience that connection again. She has a past, and vows to uncover the mystery around the person she used to be.

With her security team Public Security Section 9, she must take down notorious hacker, the Puppet Master. However, as Major begins to question her entire existence, her ability to distinguish where humanity ends and cyborgism begins is put the ultimate test.

Based on the Japanese manga series "The Ghost in the Shell" by Masamune Shirow.

  • 5 stars "Absolutely amazing...the first scene alone was spectacular! Unfortunately I missed the run of the non-3D version and was forced to watch in the 3D scourge...so I could only watch first 1/2 hour and my eyes just can't get used to 3D so I left for a refund. I really hope this movie goes to the cheap theatres so I can see it in non-3D on the big screen. But first half hour was amazing sci-fi..."
