Ghost In The Shell feels like a watered down, sterilised version of the original that has unsuccessfully attempted to become more accessible by adding in certain plot points. Though I will be the first to admit that I had to Wikipedia the 1995 original after watching to cement the narrative in my head, I appreciated the way that the film didn’t hold my hand, and this version feels very much like it does that from beginning to end. Ultimately it just isn’t a particularly good film, so don’t let the flashy, at times interesting visuals fool you in to thinking that you are watching something better than you actually are.
This 2017 re-imagining of our beloved colourful troop tells the story of five teenagers in Angel Grove, all of whom, one way or another, you could label to be misfits and outsiders. The film absolutely has The Breakfast Club to thank for the dynamic of the group, the majority of them even meeting for the first time in weekend detention, and it’s the human, coming-of-age element of the story from a star quarterback fallen from grace to a tech geek coping with autism to a Latina struggling with her sexuality that adds a really very endearing heart to the proceedings. Massive, massive props to the film for portraying the first instances of both autistic and LGBT superheroes in a blockbuster. No matter how pedestrian or forgettable the overall package is, that is one hell of a step forward.Have you noticed how we are halfway through the review and I haven’t even mentioned the plot yet? That’s because it really, really doesn’t matter.

With many people fearing the actions of super heroes, the government decides to push for the Anti-Hero Registration Act, a law that limits a heroes actions. This results in a division in The Avengers. Iron Man stands with this Act, claiming that their actions must be kept in check otherwise cities will continue to be destroyed, but Captain America feels that saving the world is daring enough and that they cannot rely on the government to protect the world. This escalates into an all-out war between Team Iron Man (Iron Man, Black Panther, Vision, Black Widow, War Machine, and Spiderman) and Team Captain America (Captain America, Bucky Barnes, Falcon, Sharon Carter, Scarlett Witch, Hawkeye, and Ant Man).
