I will give it this - the film really captured the look of the original anime, from the design of the city to the characters. I didn't really mind Scarlett Johansson in the lead (despite the controversy over whitewashing it created) but it's really the plot that suffers in this live-action remake. It takes bits and pieces from the original film, the sequel and the series - but never really meshes. It's stylish and fun to watch, but not as good as I wanted it to be.
