Storyline

In the near future, Major Mira Killian (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 Killian is uniquely qualified to stop it. As she prepares to face a new enemy, Major Killian 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. Written by Paramount Pictures

Goofs

When Major visits who she suspects is her Mother, and they sit down at the table for tea; with each character's point of view to the other switch, the tea pot handle is up (from Major's view) but then down from her reverse (Mother's view) shot: and the kettle that boils the water whistles its ready - yet has now whistle attachment to its spout.

Junkie
24 April 2018 | by tqv-80835See all my reviews

Hollywood is a junkie that is beyond help and redemption.

It is addicted to the drug of remakes and sequels. It is just terrible. Copy/inferior paste, copy/inferior paste, ad nauseam.

With 10% originality and story telling left in Hollywood we have to stay home and be rid of this stupidity. Scarlet Johansson, Paul Feig, Jar Jar Abrams, Kathleen Kennedy and the rest of the hacks should just throw in the towel.

Man, I cringed for almost two hours trying to get to the end of this DVD. What did it add to the original? Nothing? Exactly.

Takeshi Kitano looked like he is cringing right alongside me.
