Movie Trailer

Synopsis: in the near future, Major is the first of her kind: a human saved from a terrible crash, who is cyber-enhanced to be a perfect soldier devoted to stopping the world’s most dangerous criminals.

I’m not familiar with the Manga in which the movie is based off of, so I cannot attest to how accurate or how far it strays from the source material.
The movie itself seemed to fall pretty flat; the CGI effects often felt cartoonish; and I know Hollywood can do better; other times it was visually entertaining. With that being said the film seemed to drag on despite the numerous action scenes, and honestly I couldn’t wait for it to end. I’m not one to get into the whole “White Washing” topic with films, but I felt Scarlett Johansson was possibly the wrong pick for the lead character.

The scores:
Language: 1/10
Action scenes: 4/10
Plot: 3/10
Nudity: 1/10 (ScarJo in a flesh suit counts right?)
Should you watch?: 2/10. The few times that the CGI didn’t look painfully obvious, it was visually appealing
