Pointless Hollywood remake time (yet again), as the original Japanese animated film gets the live action makeover. Starring Scarlett Johansson as Major (her casting caused controversy for whitewashing) and Beat Takeshi it’s still great to look at and was entertaining enough, but has been dumbed down somewhat from the original. Some of it was filmed in New Zealand, you wouldn’t know it as most of it is CGI, and Weta had a hand in doing those CGI bits. Lots of bits. It really is mostly CGI.
