This is the PG-13, live-action version of the Rated-R manga and anime Ghost in the Shell is based on. That being said, it looks good, better than I had expected. I was surprised how well Rupert Sanders’ Snow White and the Huntsman looked and how entertained I was by the film. Paramount Pictures obviously was as well, hiring Sander for their potential tent pole film.

I never expected Johansson to be running around naked like in the manga and the anime versions of Ghost in the Shell. Paramount Pictures, like most movie studios, is risk adverse. They want to make their money back (plus a profit) and don’t see a R-rated film as the most feasible means to that end.

What I was happy about was that some of the iconic imagery and sequences from the anime film have made their way into the live-action incarnation e.g the fight scene between the man with the high-velocity bullet machine gun and Major Motoko Kusanagi.

Whether the Puppet Master will show up in this film or a possible sequel is anyone’s guess.

On the Ghost on the Shell ‘Shelling Sequence Clip’

The live action Ghost in the Shell movie’s take on the anime’s iconic opening sequence, with original composer Kenji Kawai performing a new composition live on drums. At a press event in Japan, the only access to this footage was during the showcase. The press were allowed to film this sequence during the live performance.

I loved the live action Shelling Sequence. They even used the music from the anime version of the same sequence. It you can’t beat it, use it.

Ghost in the Shell also stars Juliette Binoche, Michael Wincott, Joseph Naufahu, Chris Obi, Chin Han, Peter Ferdinando, Kaori Momoi, Danusia Samal, Yutaka Izumihara, and Tawanda Manyimo.
