#Movie: Ghost in the Shell (2017)| cyborgs seek vengeance #cyborg #robot #scifi


Human brained cybrogs seek revenge for being created. About 1 and 3/4 hours to watch, can get it from where you get movies.

Supposedly based on the 1995 anime, it has some similar scenes, but is otherwise a dumbed down revenge fantasy. Simple to understand for the average person.

Overall it doesn’t make much sense. And the ending statements are really botched, because the character repeats she is the “first of her kind”, but it is clear from the movie that is completely false (and she knows it).  Also what doesn’t make sense is that a subordinate kills the seeming director and gets promoted to director himself — though of course it is possible, the details are left out.

I give it three stars.  Mostly because it has robots and is robot point of view, but also because it might pique some people curiosity to watch the Japanese versions — to find out what it was actually about.

In fact, it’s been so long since I watched them, I think I’ll go ahead and do that. You might want to read the plot summaries before you dive into them, as they can be rather complicated, and it will give you at least a basic idea of what is going on.
