The lines were blurred between human and robot with the technological advances of the future. people getting robotic upgrades and now the new body piercing (for lack of a better example). The corporation Hanka will combine the 2 best parts of human and machine together. The Human brain in a cyborg.
Major played by ScarJo is a cyborg police officer heading up the task force to foiling cyber criminals. There’s things she sort of remembers but does not know what they are, until she meets a previous ‘experiment’ of Hanka and earlier version of what she is. Who enlightens her how to remember. Her ‘Gliches’ are a past memory.
I like the cinematography and damn if you don’t watch this on at least a blu-ray if you don’t have somethng better like the 3d or 4k screens etc you are missing out! I enjoyed the holograms around what I would perceive as (was it Tokyo?) the city’s time Square like area. There were Fish swimming in the street! Instead of Billboards they have giant holograms on top of buildings and just like we are with our own current advertising, these people are just as jadded.
Now I know the movie is likely 75% CG FX but the guy borg gives me the heebie jeebies its so freakish looking (and I do not use that term lightly) definately a case for that future’s Frankenstein monster!
As for the movie it does make an impression but I think the Visuals take away from whatever there was of a story. The story which I didn’t see that there was much depth to.
