“That was cool,” “oh wow this is awful,” “Ha that was funny,” “I have to go to the bathroom I might just leave.” Yes, these are all thoughts I said to myself while watching Alita: Battle Angel.
Alita is a story in the future around the year 2600 where an event called “The Fall” has already taken place in which all floating cities have fallen. Obviously this premise asks a lot of the viewer to get caught up with the stories that have taken already taken place within this movie. Alita is a cyborg that has been placed back together by a doctor but she has no memory of her life before this.
Look even as I type about this movie it brings up feelings I had during the movie in which I did not like it. I had higher expectations simply because the cast is stocked full of talent and I always enjoy futuristic movies but this one was difficult to get through. There are some really cool action sequences to keep you entertained but if I am being totally honest I did not like this movie. On a side note the whole movie centers around this game called “motorball.” I wish I was making some of this up but maybe this can fall into the “its so bad its good,” category. Anyways I am boring myself writing about it because this should have been much better. The trailer will be below if you want another look at it.
