Here's my thoughts. It seems like it will be the type of movie where a first time (well second time) writer/director is more interested in the concept/special effects than the story. It becomes just short of being a good movie, but one where you're still like "I'm interested in what he can do as a more mature filmmaker."
A lot of movies are based in the same set of ideas (ideas people like Ray Kurtzweil came up with/are promoting). But Ghost in the Shell is one of the few that actually conveyed those ideas in an intelligent manner. I seriously doubt this will do that.
