Overall, Alita: Battle Angel looks great but the overly sentimental script and uneven character development come across as a rushed mess.
August 17, 2019
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.
August 6, 2019
A franchise starter that looks nice but lacks humanity

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.

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.
April 16, 2019
Alita should be a heavenly sci-fi blockbuster. Instead, it's a bland meander that all the high-tech effects in the world can't save.
April 8, 2019
The film is bloody, brutally violent and rather dull. The romance is awkward, the relationships stilted and the film's heroine rather uninteresting.

If you're 10 years old and this is your first movie, you'll love it. For the rest of us who like some ambiguity and subtext in our storytelling, this is one battle not worth waging.

A young robot girl discovers the power in her body, mind and spirit. Awesome special effects, but Cameron and Rodriguez failed when it came to the female characters.
March 13, 2019
Frustrating sci-fi fantasy, saddled with chaotic action and undeniably creepy motion-capture.
March 8, 2019
What's the point of blowing somewhere around $200 million on boldly innovative sound and vision when it is built upon a script that just thuds along?
March 7, 2019
If only the story of Alita: Battle Angel had been as impressive as its technical achievements.
March 5, 2019
Despite being visually impressive, the whole movie feels cold and uninvolving, while the plot seems borrowed from numerous other movies...
March 4, 2019
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.
February 25, 2019
This results in a film whose director and protagonist have something in common-they're both pretenders, not the real deal.
February 25, 2019
The roller derby crap ruins the movie.
February 21, 2019
The film fails to present a cohesive narrative to anchor its visual splendor, giving the audience plenty of entertaining sequences but little to root for.
February 21, 2019
The visual spectacle is compelling in places and Cameron's penchant for worldbuilding is on full display. But far too much of the plot is a mess and the dialogue makes "Unobtainium" seem elevated. Overall, it's a massive misfire and a missed opportunity.
February 20, 2019
Robert Rodriguez once again presents an irregular film that entertains at times, but is an empty spectacle. [Full Review in Spanish]
February 20, 2019
Listless futuristic mumbo-jumbo without a single interesting character, building to a conclusion that's really just a setup for the next film.
