Where does this movie stand? It is NOT as good as it's counterpart, the original animated movie. However, this movie is not bad, and while it drew a lot from the original movie, it takes on a slightly different direction in the plot, character development/focus and appeal.
It has been a good number of years since I watched the original, so I had only a mild recollection of the movie going in to this one, which was nice, because I was trying a little harder to figure in this movie, vs scrutinizing and comparing. So in that respect, if you have any interest in seeing this movie, forget watching the animated one, right before.
Scarlett Johansson did an adequate job playing the Major, but she certainly did not play the Major of old, and I did find her some what more 'distant' than what might have been required. Her almost complete lack of emotion, and the way the introduction, year later scene really made it hard for me to buy in to the character. However I did find the ending very touching.
The plot diverges enough so that you are not watching the same movie, and I felt the performance/story of 'Kuze' was very provocative and complemented Johansson very well.
I would give the movie 1.5 thumbs up, with respect to most of what Hollywood is producing, it gets two solid thumbs up. & Yeah, Takeshi Kitano, almost worth the price of admission right there. For a more visual and in depth review
