Although the film is largely an original story, the film does use several characters, as well as visual and thematic cues not only from Ghost in the Shell (1995), but also its sequel, Ghost in the Shell 2: Innocence (2004). The geisha, for example, are lifted from Innocence. See more »

I have not watched the original, but this film was pretty boring and made me feel incredulous. I suppose I should just avoid all these remakes and sequels Hollywood so loves. There was a scene where an assassin attacks the head of the intelligence and he not only knew it was coming (how?) but also put up a piece of something in front of his face and none of the many bullets sprayed at him even grazed him. In another scene the enemy unleashed a barrage of canon fire at the android. Even her hair was not ruffled. So on and so forth.
