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

Trivia

An official release of the film's score by co-composers Clint Mansell and Lorne Balfe was originally planned by Lakeshore Records with pre-orders available for CDs but was inexplicably canceled shortly after the movie's opening on March 31, 2017. Some have speculated that the cancellation was due to the film's under-performance at the box office and its polarized reception with both critics and fans of the original anime series alike. Many fans of the film's music across the Internet expressed their outrage and a Change.org petition was even started which has over five thousand signatures asking for an official release as of April 2018. On December 31, 2017, Lorne Balfe linked eighteen cues that he had composed in studio quality WAV format on his official Twitter account as a free New Year's Eve gift and thanked the fans for supporting his work on the film. However, over a year after the score's release was canceled, neither Lakeshore nor Paramount Pictures have addressed this controversy and although a soundtrack album was released digitally on the same day as the movie itself which mainly consisted of licensed tracks that appeared in and were also "inspired by" the movie, it's unlikely that an official release of the actual score will see the light of day in the near future, if ever at all.

Fake Cyberpunk

A boring movie with no real feeling to it. Ignore the studio hags and skip this movie.
