Live action adaptation puts politics in the Shell
Major has been told her brain was taken from an immigrant killed by terrorists, but all is not what it seems etcetera etcerera.Most certainly not. Did the filmmakers conceive a metaphor for trying to separate between illegal immigrants and terrorists infiltrating western countries? I saw the anime film nearly a decade ago, and I don't remember any of this propaganda taking place there.
The funny thing is how, despite the movie bearing a likely political stance reflecting their own, SJWs clearly weren't interested in the live action film regardless if the box office returns say anything. Still, I think some manga creations work far better as they are on the printed page.
