Ghost In The Shell Is Gorgeous, With A Really Big BUT! (As In — It's Almost Great, But…)

no title

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.

Unfortunately, some of the darkness of the original was lost along the way — ironically keeping any of the reviews from being too glowing.

The consensus regarding star/controversy fulcrum Scarlett Johansson is that she's very good in the role… but was better in her other, more challenging not-quite-human roles in Her and Under The Skin (both of which you should totally see!).

Will what the critics have to say sway you? Ch-ch-check out our review roundup (below) to find out!

Defender? More Like OFFENDER! Get A Taste Of The Terrible Reviews For Marvel's Iron Fist!

Filed under: TV NewsNetflix

Marvel is used to great reviews, even for its Netflix shows.

Daredevil, Jessica Jones, and Luke Cage have scored respective percentages of 87, 93, and 96 on review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes (presumably because most reviewers only watch the first half of the season, before plots completely fall apart).

But it looks like the House of Ideas' Netflix wing (which, it should be noted, is completely separate from the movie studio) is facing its first big critical flop!

Don't believe us? Just check out the awful things critics are saying about the boring characters, cliché story, badly edited fight scenes, and cultural insensitivity of Iron Fist (below)!
