    You know what, I thought it looks OK for what it is, trying to keep an open mind. We all know what they could and perhaps should have done with casting choices, but more than willing to give this a chance, based on this trailer, at the very least it can be a decent sci-fi action film.

    It looked very GITS'y to me, rather looking forward to it.

    It wasn't very good, just watch the anime and you'll enjoy yourself more. I loved Beat Takeshi as Aramaki but Scarlett as the Major did very little for me (which is a shame, as I like most of her work).

    I disagree. I thought it was rather good. Not perfect and a little watered down, but it was done very well with lots of small nods to the original, plus some of the scenes entirely recreated, but well fitted in to the new script.

    I enjoyed it, both big screen and small (courtesy of the blu-ray bought at the weekend)

    I wasn't expecting a slavish copy of the anime, but an interpretation.

    It ticked pretty much all the boxes for me, from the Bladerunner-esque setting, the nods to the original and the additional; story elements which added to the whole.
