[I]t's hard to follow where this movie goes, in no small part because the film itself has trouble finding a path.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4

Not complex enough to be engaging; not simple enough to be exciting.
February 1, 2019
(...) Alita is a muddled film that packs in action at the expense of substance and relies on Cameron's worst storytelling impulses.
February 14, 2019
Those unfamiliar with the source material may find enough to enjoy about this ambitious, futuristic tale of a strong, half-human heroine - until they become overloaded with pointless action sequences and a sprawling story.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5

Alita: Battle Angel feels like it was made in 1999, just with a modern coat of CG paint that only slightly brings the film into the 21st century.

I don't feel one bit guilty for not enjoying 'Cyberpunk Rollerball' in 2019.

You don't need a set of incredibly large eyes to see that Alita: Battle Angel is a movie rife with problems.

'Alita: Battle Angel' is a grandiose spectacle with visual creations to delight your senses but very little else. But when the action halts, the film's noticeable flaws are exposed.

February 11, 2019
Everything visual here is a treat. That's about the only thing to praise. Everything else is mediocre or worse. Plus, it ends right as you're starting to get invested.

Alitasuffers from an overly wordy screenplay that spoon-feeds the audience. Perhaps worst of all, the story suffers from being repetitive.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
February 11, 2019
Alita is saddled with a plot that falls somewhere between uninteresting and irritating, and the inescapable fact that we've seen it all before hangs over every frame.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/10

I am so tired of a movie coming out that is about the seven other movies that they're going to make after this movie.
Full Review | Original Score: 4.5/10
February 7, 2019
A poorly developed script combined with directing that feels designed for younger audiences leaves not much to be enjoyed outside of the visuals.

No doubt, we have to talk about those creepy big eyes-from start to finish they are disconcerting-which is a shame, as Alita, (Rosa Salaza) the spunky female lead character doesn't need them to be alluring.

It's a shame that the film doesn't stand on its own, with a story as creative and engaging as its setting.

Robert Rodriguez delivers a by the numbers story.

February 14, 2019
The movie creates an impressive and well-thought-out world with beautiful production design but then populates it with hollow characters and a boring story.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
February 12, 2019
Great fight scenes abound. But there are way too many superficial or uninteresting scenes that slow down an already long movie. And the film is frustratingly shallow emotionally.
Full Review | Original Score: C-plus
February 15, 2019
Attending the movies should not come with homework assignments, and if a film only works if you study its backstory in advance, there is something terribly wrong.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
January 31, 2019
Ultimately, this all feels like a step backwards.
