It suffers because like most of the Cameron stories, its not a deep story and unfortunately the special effects are really strong, but they are not revolutionary.

It's goofy as hell and borderline inexcusable at times, but it's also kind of glorious.

I loved watching this sci-fi spectacle's moving parts. I just couldn't get past its brain.

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.

Basically, we're talking about a lot of human heads doing a lot of insulting and quipping and grunting and groaning while atop all manner of fighting cyborg bodies

Alita too often feels thin, despite a surfeit of heavy-hitting talent.

Alita: Battle Angel has incredibly stunning visuals, action, and effects, but the story is far too cramped and feels like several movies stuffed into one.

A franchise starter that looks nice but lacks humanity

The world is fantastically realized. From the costumes to the production design to the character design, every detail feels perfectly drawn out.

Alita: Battle Angel is the rare modern blockbuster to grow richer with each viewing, and Fox's Blu-ray of Robert Rodriguez's film may be the reference disc of the year so far, with unimpeachable audio and video and a host of strong extras to boot.

Alita: Battle Angel is worth your penny if you are looking for a good, action-packed, entertaining spectacle.

Great acton, a great cast, a great lead character, and a very intriguing world

Rosa Salazar is more than believable as the innocent, wide-eyed (literally and figuratively) cyborg who eventually discovers she is a fierce warrior.

Alita: Battle Angel is an action-packed ride that had me in tears. It's definitely one of my favorite live-action films based on the manga and anime, and Rosa Salazar as Alita brings a lot of heart to the film.

Alita is the kind of movie that would have worked better if it were worse. What could have been weird, scrappy sci-fi trash tries to be epic, which it very much isn't. And not just because Jai Courtney appears but also because of that.

The film's biggest achievement is the way it makes Alita feel completely real, despite her enormous eyes and robo-limbs.

All things considered, the movie is an immersive escape to another world. It's not going to be the next Avatar despite being an equally massive idea, but Alita builds its own world for a second adventure that may get audiences more invested.

Alita remains an eye-popping extravaganza that reaches for an apex of technical perfection so honestly and impressively that it's almost overwhelming.

It is a film with plenty of exciting moments, likeable characters, and stunning imagery. The plot and screenplay are weak, but personally I'll take exciting but flawed over tidy but ordinary any time.

One thinks of Ghost in the Shell, Robocop, Blade Runner or Ready Player One while watching it. Yet it fails to capture any of those films' sense of wonder.
