Based on manga series 

Alita: Battle Angel is a new cyberpunk action film that is based on Yukito Kishiro’s manga series Gunnm, also known as Battle Angel Alita and published in 1990.

Robert Rodriguez decided to create a live-action film adaptation that is to see the world on February 14, 2019.

Rodriguez and Cameron are two nerd gods of filmmaking

Alita: Battle Angel was directed by Robert Rodriguez, written and produced by James Cameron and written Laeta Kalogridis.

So, in this movie, we can see two genius collaborating – but has anything good come out of it?

Well, if we talk about action and jaw-dropping fighting scenes – it’s a masterpiece, however, other elements of the film are highly incomplete.

Concentrate more on sequels 

Unfortunately, the movie is almost unfinished and has an incomplete script. It even seems that the creators were more interested in making the base for the future installments than developing the lines here and now.

As an audience, we used to miss our characters when the movie is over. In this case, we don’t have enough time to get to know the main characters and fall in love with them, so the news about the sequels won’t make us happy.

Inappropriate CGI 

Alita: Battle Angel trailer was released, the Internet went furious about Alita’s anime-style eyes. Even though it corresponds to manga style, it’s still weird why other characters don’t have such large eyes.

Robert Rodriguez explained why Alita has big eyes: “The manga anime eyes that we’ve seen since the 30s and Astro Boy has never been done photorealistically. So, usually when we see an anime translated, it doesn’t feel like that.”

He added, “The early artwork I saw that Jim [Cameron] had, before it was even technically possible, had that in her [Alita]. It was so striking and so arresting, I thought, ‘My god, we have to do that. We have to be the first to bring a true manga and anime character to life.’”

Critics’ opinion

On Rotten TomatoesAlita: Battle Angel holds an approval rating of 60% based on 114 reviews, with an average rating of 6/10.

The sum up of the movie says, “Alita: Battle Angel’s story struggles to keep up with its special effects, but fans of futuristic sci-fi action may still find themselves more than sufficiently entertained.”

Here are some of the top critics’ comments on the movie:

  • “The results are what one might expect from two nerd gods of filmmaking: a visually stunning computer-generated heroine, impressive futuristic world-building, and some seriously neat action scenes,” Brian Truitt for USA Today.
  • “A pileup of clichés in service to technological whiz-bangery, “Alita” is one more story of the not quite human brought to life with hubris and bleeding-edge science,” Manohla Dargis for New York Times.
  • “Without a follow-up, the character’s story will be left incomplete – another example of filmmakers whose hubris about the inevitability of sequels will likely leave fans high and dry,” James Berardinelli for ReelViews.
