Disclaimer: We are part of the campaigning bloggers promoting the release of the film described in this blog post, alongside Allied Contigo. We were not compensated to write this blog post, however, we were invited to enjoy an advance screening of this film. We had such an interesting experience, that we decided to share it with our online community. All opinions are 100% our own. Any and all promotional photos & information were provided to us for press purposes. Please be open, and remember that we are all different individuals, who may have a different point of view than yours.

We were invited by Allied Contigo to view an advanced screening of Ghost in the Shell on 3D last night, and let me tell you that--WOW! It was totally an incredible visual experience. To be honest, we are not big fans of watching movies on 3D, but in certain occasions, for the most part, totally worth it. This film, has many visual effects that are brought to life and enhanced by the 3D experience. I can't imagine all the special effects we might have missed, if we had seen this film the traditional way. I am not going to spoil this movie for you, but if you've seen the movie trailer, it is understandable that "Major", Scarlett Johansson's character, is part machine. With that being said, appreciating this film in 3D, captures the sense of observing a bit of the world through her eyes in a very realistic way.

I've been aware about this story ever since I was a teenager, because I've been in the comic-book world for a while. However, I never really saw the Anime version of the film to personally share a comparison. Nonetheless, my husband had, and he said that this movie follows the Anime film's story line very closely--he was impressed.

I think that all the components that were incorporated towards the creation of Ghost in the Shell, such as; the music, visual effects, and costume design, were key elements to give the viewer a pretty good futuristic feel. The story in the movie was very well-thought-out, making sure that even if you didn't know about the story previous to watching the film, you are easily caught up.

Ghost in the Shell is rated PG-13. Now, can your kids watch this movie? I believe it all depends on you. There is a lot of action in it, meaning; fighting sequences, explosions, crashes, destruction, and loads of guns being fired. There is not a lot of blood shown, however, there are a few exposed injuries, and a few dead bodies throughout the film: nothing far from the "norm" in action movies now at days. If you think your kids can handle movies like 'Terminator', I believe they should be fine.

Just as a reference, be aware that there is an action sequence in which the lighting effects may be a little disturbing for people with sensitive eyes. It happens a bit after "Major" gets into a bar fight, and goes through a hall. Sorry for this little spoiler, but if you have sensitive eyes like me, you'll thank me for the heads up. My advice, as soon as the bright white flashes start happening, just close your eyes. It only lasts a few seconds, therefore, you won't be missing much.

Now, at the other side of the visual spectrum, keep an eye for the special effects in all the sequences that involve water. I don't know what it is about water and slow motion that always keeps me at awe, but if you are like me, you are really going to enjoy them.

All in all, we had a great time, and I super recommend this film to all the people who enjoy action movies, futuristic/robotic sci-fi, and of course, those who love Scarlett Johansson, because she looks amazingly beautiful throughout the film.
