From what we’ve seen so far, Ghost in the Shell looks pretty awesome. Yes, there is that controversy about casting a white female in the role of a character that was originally Japanese.

However the first five minutes of the film has dropped online and whether you like the casting of Scarlett Johansson or not, she looks pretty kick-ass in the role of Major.

Not too bad. Visually it looks epic. However I’m also realist and believe nothing will beat the original, no matter how crazy the live-action version might look.
