It Sounds Like ALITA: BATTLE ANGEL Could Be The Mind-Blowing Movie Experience We Were All Hoping For!
The first reactions to director Robert Rodriguez’s sci-fi action film Alita: Battle Angel have hit the internet and you might be excited to learn what people are saying!
I’ve been hoping that this film would turn out great! After all, it’s been a passion project for producer James Cameron for years. He finally got the movie made with Rodriguez at the helm, and it looks like they are going to deliver a hell of a great film!
At least, that’s according to the few people who have already seen it. This could very well be the mind-blowing movie-going experience we were all hoping for! Here’s what’s been said so far:
Saw #AlitaBattleAngel, a sci-fi genre landmark offering an immersive glimpse into a future world of haves and have-nots, with Rosa Salazar’s cyborg as its powerful avenging angel. Her photoreal CG performance is amazingly nuanced. Only complaint is the film left me wanting more. pic.twitter.com/vjhUePUfWW— Max Evry (@maxevry) January 9, 2019
#AlitaBattleAngel is a wild, visceral ride that offers kick-ass action, an immersive virtual world and a surprising amount of emotional weight. Everything rests on you loving the character of Alita and she is fully fleshed out; strong, flawed, endearing and rebellious— Paul Shirey (@arcticninjapaul) January 9, 2019
There are a lot of surprises in #AlitaBattleAngel with some dark turns and violent bursts of action, as well as characters that break free of being humdrum digital beings and emerge as fully rounded individuals. Spectacle is aplenty, but it’s not without investment.— Paul Shirey (@arcticninjapaul) January 9, 2019
Great score by @Junkie_XL that stands out in action beats and quiet scenes. Obviously the effects are great and the creativity behind many of the characters is inspired and cool with a few cameo surprises. This is definitely a theatrical experience movie. #AlitaBattleAngel— Paul Shirey (@arcticninjapaul) January 9, 2019
Those are certainly all words of encouragement and now I can’t wait to see it for myself! Do these reactions up your excitement level for the movie?
Visionary filmmakers James Cameron (Avatar) and Robert Rodriguez (Sin City) create a groundbreaking new heroine in Alita: Battle Angel, an action-packed story of hope, love and empowerment. Set several centuries in the future, the abandoned Alita (Rosa Salazar) is found in the scrapyard of Iron City by Ido (Christoph Waltz), a compassionate cyber-doctor who takes the unconscious cyborg Alita to his clinic. When Alita awakens she has no memory of who she is, nor does she have any recognition of the world she finds herself in. Everything is new to Alita, every experience a first. As she learns to navigate her new life and the treacherous streets of Iron City, Ido tries to shield Alita from her mysterious past while her street-smart new friend, Hugo (Keean Johnson), offers instead to help trigger her memories. A growing affection develops between the two until deadly forces come after Alita and threaten her newfound relationships. It is then that Alita discovers she has extraordinary fighting abilities that could be used to save the friends and family she’s grown to love. Determined to uncover the truth behind her origin, Alita sets out on a journey that will lead her to take on the injustices of this dark, corrupt world, and discover that one young woman can change the world in which she lives.
Alita: Battle Angel also stars Jennifer Connelly, Mahershala Ali, Ed Skrein, and Jackie Earle Haley. The movie is set to be released on February 14, 2019.
