In the near future, a weary Logan cares for an ailing Professor X somewhere on the Mexican border. However, Logan's attempts to hide from the world and his legacy are upended when a young mutant arrives, pursued by dark forces.
In the year 2032, Batô, a cyborg detective for the anti-terrorist unit Public Security Section 9, investigates the case of a female robot--one created solely for sexual pleasure--who slaughtered her owner.
In the near future, Major Motoko Kusanagi (Scarlett Johansson) is the first of her kind: A human saved from a terrible terrorist attack, who is cyber-enhanced to be a perfect soldier devoted to stopping the world's most dangerous criminals. When terrorism reaches a new level that includes the ability to hack into people's minds and control them, Major Kusanagi is uniquely qualified to stop it. As she prepares to face a new enemy, Major Kusanagi discovers that she has been lied to: her life was not saved, it was stolen. She will stop at nothing to recover her past, find out who did this to her and stop them before they do it to others. Based on the internationally acclaimed Japanese Manga, "The Ghost in the Shell."

There was an attack. You were dying. We saved you and now you save others. You are the first of your kind, but you are not invulnerable.
Maybe next time you can design me better.

As a massive fan of the original films as well as stand alone complex.. this film disappointed me.. it tried to be clever but just constantly comes off as too simple and too self explanatory.. the changes made make it into a pretty simple and generic story.. it wasn't a bad film nor was it as terrible as some other adaptations are.. but it certainly was disappointing for a GITS fan.. its a 6 at best... maybe a 6.5 for the visuals.. which were the best thing about this movie.
