"[A] dystopian noir-thriller with no shortage of striking sequences..." - 03/30/2017 Los Angeles Times


"Just about every scene in GHOST IN THE SHELL is a visual wonder to behold." - 03/31/2017 Chicago Sun-Times

"The movie is often lovely to look at, its ultramodern metropolis setting a hive of holographic billboards, personal-media bubbles, seductive neon and classical Asian design elements." - 03/30/2017 Washington Post

4 stars out of 5 -- "The main selling point here is the film’s breathtaking visual impact....It’s a thrillingly sordid world..." - 04/02/2017 The Guardian
