I’m cautiously optimistic here; they’ve certainly done a pretty good job at capturing the overall look and feel of the classic Manga movie (from what I can see at least), which I absolutely love:
If this live action film can live up to the seminal Manga movie it might just be one of great sci-fi films of our time. I think I’m getting a little bit carried away in my optimism but fingers crossed. . . .
PS. If you’ve never watched the original Ghost in the Shell feature-length Manga movie, it’s available on Netflix now (certainly in the UK at least). I’d highly recommend giving it a watch (it’s certainly in My Top 10 Manga Movies of all time). 🙂
