Much ado has been made of the whitewashing in the live action remake of Ghost In The Shell; that alone will probably keep many from bothering to give the film their business.
But we were curious — was all the controversy even worth it? We mean, is the movie any good at all anyway??
Well, the answer to that is apparently almost. In perusing what the critics are saying, the resounding opinion is that the filmmakers have created a gorgeous, technically immaculate recreation of a cartoon that seemed impossible to adapt to live action.
