Ghost in the Shell

Masamune Shirow's prototypical cyberpunk manga series (later adapted as an anime in 1995 by Momoru Oshii) goes live-action with Scarlett Johansson as a special task force police officer whose entire body has been replaced by cybertechnology. In the near future, she and her teammates hunt down a mysterious terrorist with the ability to hack into humans and control their bodies via their computer-enhanced brains. The film nails the visual aesthetic of Oshii's anime, but fails to capture the philosophical underpinnings of Shirow's manga. 106 minutes PG-13.
