Now I can strike "Watch a Ghost in the Shell animated feature film in a real movie theater" off the list of things I didn't expect would happen in my life.

So I was wondering if any Crunchyrollers here have seen it yet. I was surprised how small the audience was at my theater (~10 people) compared to Love Live, which was like a carnival.

imo:

GitS is more or less the Die Hard franchise of anime, and this movie is like Die Hard 5...because both include many nods to the original, and feel like the franchise is played out So many recycled scenarios from the manga, SAC, and Arise. It was a very easy movie to read despite my perpetual confusion at the standard GitS technobabble and reality/virtual world misdirection.

That doesn't mean I didn't enjoy it though, because I did. I'm always happy to watch Motoko kick ass.

I kinda wonder how Mary Elizabeth McGlynn felt about playing Kurutsu in the film, after being the definitive voice of Motoko for so long. I thought some lines about "replacement" exchanged between Motoko and Kurutsu carried some real world irony...
