Alita: Battle Angel Review – A Very Expensive, Pretty to Look at Tech Demo

The film is very pretty and the fight/action scenes look great. But everything else leaves a lot to be desired

Kriss, Ro, Brandon and Shanna get together to review Alita: Battle Angel. So full disclosure, Kriss is NOT happy about this film and he's not necessarily wrong. But it really comes down to what you're looking for in this film. If your only focus is a film that looks beautiful (probably one of the best looking films you'll see this year) and some really kick ass action sequences, this might be worth checking out. The problem is, it's still a James Cameron script and with that comes all the issues that accompany James Cameron movies. Ro discusses what the film should have been about had they been more faithful to the Manga and that probably would have been a better film. 

We have a good (and sometimes heated) discussion about this film. Give it a listen.

A deactivated female cyborg is revived, but cannot remember anything of her past life and goes on a quest to find out who she is.
