| Embarrassing as a Japanese
I am Japanese and I get sad when I see this film. I cannot understand why western directors and producers always want to copy eastern and Japanese art including movies but never understand it or give it's quality treatment. Very strange. From Japan I say hiring one Japanese actor doesn't make your responsibility wash away.

Trivia

An official release of the film's score by co-composers Clint Mansell and Lorne Balfe was originally planned by Lakeshore Records with pre-orders available for CDs but was inexplicably canceled shortly after the movie's opening on March 31, 2017. Some have speculated that the cancellation was due to the film's under-performance at the box office and its polarized reception with both critics and fans of the original anime series alike. Many fans of the film's music across the Internet expressed their outrage and a Change.org petition was even started which has over five thousand signatures asking for an official release as of April 2018. On December 31, 2017, Lorne Balfe linked eighteen cues that he had composed in studio quality WAV format on his official Twitter account as a free New Year's Eve gift and thanked the fans for supporting his work on the film. However, over a year after the score's release was canceled, neither Lakeshore nor Paramount Pictures have addressed this controversy and although a soundtrack album was released digitally on the same day as the movie itself which mainly consisted of licensed tracks that appeared in and were also "inspired by" the movie, it's unlikely that an official release of the actual score will see the light of day in the near future, if ever at all.
