Not worthy of the Ghost in the Shell mantle.
I believe someone else said that this was "not a movie for dummies". Well, sorry, but that IS what this movie is in a sense. This is basically a dumbed down version of the original Ghost in the Shell. This movie did not live up to my expectations, but unlike what one of the other reviewers thinks, this fact is not my fault. Ghost in the Shell and Stand Alone Complex set some incredibly high standards that this movie had to live up to......and Innocence fell horribly short. I think most of this came about because of poor choices though. The choice to completely change the style of the movie, the idiotic choice to rely on CGI, the hearing impaired sub-titles, the choice to make reference to another one of Oshii's films (Avalon), the choice to rip off stuff from the original, etc. It all just added up to the point where I couldn't stand watching it anymore. But, please do not take my review to heart, or send me hate emails and such, go watch this movie for yourself and make up your own mind.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
