Ghost in the Shell
Set some time in the future when robotics and humanity have become merged someone or something is threatening the ubiquitous technology Corporation of their time.
'Ghost in the Shell' has the look of a 'Blade Runner' with its dark laneways, dense populations and seedy futuristic images. There is plenty of action and a plot of sorts but really this is mostly an entertainment of image and action which is unsurprising given the work's origins in popular Japanese comics and cartooning.
I found it enjoyable at viewing but pretty forgettable soon after.
