We have been promised an Alita Battle Angel movie for several years. James Cameron had it on his plate to make but then he got busy with Avatar and making the sequels to that blockbuster. He enlisted the help of his friend Robert Rodriguez.
Robert had a daunting challenge ahead of him to make the movie capture the human side of Alita while still having stunning special effects that capture all the action of the manga.
The story is your typical love story between two people from very different backgrounds. Robert Rodriguez was able to walk that fine line between making you care about the main character while also blowing you away with action and graphics. The two hours seemed to whiz by.
Keep your eyes open for an uncredited appearance from a prominent actor near the end. The movie also leaves it wide open for the possibility of a sequel. So far, Alita is performing better than expected at the box office so the probability of a sequel is pretty high.
We admittedly have not read the manga for Alita so we can't speak to it's accuracy to the source material. Let us know if the movie is true to the manga. Do you agree with us that it is a very entertaining and action packed movie? Let us know in the comments.
