Live action adaptation puts politics in the Shell

The recent live action remake of Mamoru Oshii's 1995 anime based on the manga from 1989 may not have been a big success. But as this Australian Daily Review article about the film reveals, something may have gone by unnoticed during all the fuss made by SJWs worried about whitewashing (which they never did when Man of Steel turned Perry White black), this despite how Japanese audiences aren't bothered:
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.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
