Ghost in the Shell 2 (Innocence)

2004, Rated PG-13, 99 min. Directed by Mamoru Oshî.

I don’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings, but if you had anything remotely nice to say about the ScarJo adaptation of Ghost in the Shell (which I refuse to call anything other than “White Savior Complex”), we probably aren’t going to be friends. Alamo Mueller is doing everyone and their mom a favor screening the sequel to the cult classic original anime film that forces us to confront the moral quandary of forcing humanoid beings to do our dirty work, then dispose of them when they become obsolete to their human makers. If that sounds familiar, it’s because the trope has been done and redone in almost every form of popular media, and it all started with a Japanese animation from 1995. – Cy White Read a full review of Ghost in the Shell 2: Innocence.
