Alita: Battle Angel is in theaters on February 14th, 2019.

I was very eager to watch Alita: Battle Angel when I first heard about it. An awesome robot girl fighting her way through an almost cyberpunk like world? Tell me when and I am there! This movie had all of the potential to be one of the greats, and failed in many areas. I have two main issues with this movie: 1) A completely unnecessary love interest and 2) a wasted attempt for assuring people will want a sequel. The side characters were poorly written and gave you a rushed reason as to why you should want to see them live.

The scenes where they were interacting with Alita were good, but only put two side characters in the conversation and it’s a disappointment. This movie is honestly only good to be seen in theatres for the sole purpose of the animation. The animation is so spectacular and mesmerizing, that it deserves to be seen on the highest quality screens available. The story, however, does not.

Rating: 2.8 out of 5
