Alita is a creation from an age of despair. Found by the mysterious Dr. Ido while trolling for cyborg parts, Alita becomes a lethal, dangerous being. She cannot remember who she is, or where she came from. But to Dr. Ido, the truth is all too clear. She is the one being who can break the cycle of death and destruction left behind from Tiphares. But to accomplish her true purpose, she must fight and kill. And that is where Alita's true significance comes to bear. She is an angel from heaven. She is an angel of death.
Just screened a copy, it was a bad copy but not a CAM.
There was this irritating Chinese web address plastered on the screen tho. LOL
On first view, I'm not impressed. The graphics looks like a run-o-the-mill superhero film.
The story is nothing special really.
It has lots to look at and a bluray might reveal some hidden 26th century gems but I doubt it.
I don't really do anime or magna. I guess its allure is lost on me.
As a popcorn film, there are much better but I guess it all goes to personal taste.
I'll probably watch it a few more times with a cleaner copy but I'm pretty happy I didn't pay money to see this in theaters. That being said, If you like fake graphics and post teenager stories, go for it.
I liked the movie a lot. There's some corny dialogue, and the boyfriend isn't the greatest actor, but I thought the actress did a terrific job with Alita, I enjoyed her relationship with the father figure (probably because I have three daughters), and her growth both physically and emotionally. I thought they did a pretty amazing job with the CGI, when seeing the trailer I thought her eyes would bother me, but they didn't, and soon became a normal part of her, to me. I would recommend seeing this in the theater, if there are any showings left.
I enjoyed it myself...but I had no knowledge of the graphic novel before seeing the movie, and hadn't seen any trailers before going to see it. I agree that it seemed like the violence level was rather high for what I assume is the intended audience. Only objection I had to it was that you could almost see the plot twists coming a mile away each and every time.
As a stand alone film (without prior knowledge) it is entertaining, in a way.
It certainly had good production values.
The story and execution seemed too familiar.
Perhaps I am jaded?
It certainly had a similar "Style" of any superhero movie.
While completely watchable, it breaks no new ground.
your opinions here are valued. I was going to watch it being a fan of Ghost-in-the-Shell, the Japanese version, series and all the movies. Then Appleseed and the follow on but since then nothing much. This movie is I think overhyped in the media -not here! critical criticism is valued.
I watched Alita, it was okay. Not the best but certainly not the worst.
Though the cast of the sequel has not been confirmed. But, we can expect most of the characters from the previous season to return for the Cast of Alita Part 2. The Cast include: Rosa Salazar as Alita.
ALITA Battle Angel 2 Teaser (2022) With Rosa Salazar & Lana Condor
I will be wanting to see Alita 2, I'm wondering if they actually get to the city?
I was expecting this one to be darker when I watched it, not so YA-ish. The special effects weren't appealing to me either. I am not a fan of Rodriquez's style he uses in his Shark Boy & Lava Girl and Spy Kids stuff and he used the same style yet again in Alita. Not a bad movie, just not a movie for me.
