Meh. I'll reserve judgment on the movie. At least they didn't credit her name as 'Motoko Kusanagi', just the Major.

My biggest problem is not that Scarlett is the lead actor. It's that this will be an oversimplification of a very deep, thoughtful, philosophical story in order to cash in on a titan of an anime series. I realize that GitS is probably too much for most Americans to handle in terms of understanding it, even I don't really get all of it, but it's still no excuse to gut the thing and cut out it's heart.

You mean like if the Japanese took a European novel to adapt as a film and used Japanese actors instead of Europeans? Crazy. So off the charts offensive.
