Review: Ghost In The Shell Paris Premiere

The modern remake of cult classic sci-fi Ghost In Shell premiered in Paris with stars from the movie, Scarlett Johansson and Adwoa Aboah opting for bold wardrobe choices.

Whilst the original feature length anime movie came out in 1995 (ten years after the first Terminator film, and four years before the first Matrix film) a lot of the concepts and technological advancements are either possible or on the verge of existence today.

Fans of the original and those new to Ghost In The Shell will marvel at this blockbuster as Scarlett Johansson brings to life the challenging role of a robot tortured by human emotions. The special effects are outstanding, and the narrative is equally as engaging.

I was hooked from the opening scene until the end credits, however the feel of the movie was very much in the vain of a computer game. Adwoa Aboah’s short role in the movie was wonderfully shot, adding layers to the protagonists anti-mainstream biometrics.
