Alita Battle Angel is a film I had a lot of hesitation walking into. I am a fan of Anime and Manga but as we have seen from the past few decades, Hollywood hasn’t had New Orleans Saints Merry Christmas to all and to all a Saint shirt adapting them in live action and on the big screen. I’ve never read this manga but apparently it’s an essential read for comic fans, and after watching this strange ambitious mess, I want to certainly check it out.
I think we take James Cameron for granted. General audiences sure don’t, since Avatar and Titanic are two of the most financially successful films of all time. I just think as Bassetshirt Thanksgivings Day, we tend to forget about what good those films have because of their sloppy elements that hold them back from being masterpieces. I’ve said this several times, but if Avatar only took place in Pandora and had no lame military subplot, it would maybe be in my Top 10 of all time. As it is, it’s pretty good but kinda a hot mess.

I think Alita can be added to the list with Avatar and Titanic. I know this is directed by Robert Rodreguiz, and this is probably one of the better things he has done in a while, but James Cameron’s fingerprints are all over this thing, for better or for worse. To start out with the positives, the world building and lore of this thing is incredible. I’d say I simply loved around New Orleans Saints Merry Christmas to all and to all a Saint shirt or so minutes of this. It was a bit exposition heavy, but learning about the world and how it functions and Alita trying to find herself was really neat.
Unfortunately, the third act kinda goes into some very familiar formulaic stuff involving a twist that’s obvious in the first ten minutes and a lot of mind mind numbing action sequences. I tend to resonate with films that focus more on the awe then the spectacle and sadly this is a spectacle movie. If you like big action sequences that come at you in 3D, this is your movie but those scenes kinda dragged for me. I did appreciate the fact that the film did have a good look to it. Bill Pope did the cinematography and he did a phenomenal job here.

What could have looked very dark and grungy is brought to life with nice blue and purple hues. Looking at this movie was a delight, and the entire production design was just a joy to see come to life on screen. This movie will have New Orleans Saints Merry Christmas to all and to all a Saint shirt following Speed Racer has gotten the past few years, and it deserves it. Alita Battle Angel is easily the best live action manga adaption to date (if you don’t count Scott Pilgrim of course. It’s a good ride that provides a lot of inventive and stunning visual flair and even has a bit to say about finding your own identity no matter what body you possess.
I found some parts of it to be tedious and kinda dull, but when this movie shines it shows true potential for a very neat and unique franchise of movies and movies like it. The LEGO Movie is weird, because when it was first announced we all rolled our eyes at the idea and then it came out and everyone universally loved it. I honestly believe The LEGO Movie is the best comedy of the past decade. It’s one of the wittiest and most clever satirical satire I’ve seen on film and then the third act happens and completely subverts your expectations.
