Alita: Battle Angel - Movie Review
James Cameron is finally analyzed, kind of, as Chris breaks down his long-awaited adaptation of the beloved manga, Alita: Battle Angel. But do his films still have the magic touch?
Join Chris as he analyzes & reviews Alita: Battle Angel, the 2019 science fiction/action movie, directed by Robert Rodriguez & starring Rosa Salazar.
A deactivated cyborg is revived, but cannot remember anything of her past life & goes on a quest to find out who she is.
Sounds simple enough. Especially for a fantasy epic, set in space, produced AND written by the one & only James Cameron.
But did he pay enough attention to his scriptwriting amidst all his Avatar business?
Is the giant budget to make Alita look manga-accurate justified? Is her story one worth telling? This movie has a great cast...are they well-utilized? How's the action? Who asked for this phantom menace villain? Does Mahershala Ali have the cool factor to play Marvel's Blade? Did that ending really just do that?!
Most importantly, is this a backdoor MegaMan movie??
