Alita: Battle Angel (2019) one tenth of what the moose rated Suspiria (the remake) above out of 10 Lets just call this the third remake of Rollerball and be done with it really. As if McTieirnan remaking all of Jewisons films was not bad enough, now we have Rodriguez who came on the scene with the oh so brilliant El Mariachi and Road Racers following down the hollywhore creativity black hole paved by oh so many of late. He thinks he gets a free pass because the ultimate plagarist Cameron is backing him up on this one. Lets face it, Cameron got sued over the film that made his career (Terminator) and luckily enough had enough money socked away to pay of the Russian author who he stole Avatar from before it went to court. So you get Alita which is so far departed from the beloved manga and OVA as to be unrecognizable to fans of either. But it gets made because unlike del Toro, Cameron bought it outright lock stock and barrel and the original artists had no recourse as they did with del Toro in forcing him to rename Evangelion into Pacific Rimjob because he was so far off the mark it was unrecognizable. Now off the politics and down to the nitty gritty. Why hire an actress the part is all CGI. Look at the hair movement it's all Mocap from scene 2 on and all she is is a voice. Couple that with not one single scene in this film that you have not seen before and you have a film which takes derivative to the point of "find and replace" for directors. Rollerball, Altered Carbon, every Marvel Film in the last five years. All scenes are represented here.Not a single molecule nay atom of original idea. This squab (it's really to smally fry to even aspire to be a Turkey) makes ScarJo's pee poor attempt at Ghost in the Shell look like high art. I can only assume that it's delay in release was timed to co incide with our Canadian legalization of Marijuana. Save your eyes and brain cells and if you are of a sci fi mind and want intellect of sorts, source out a French TV series called "Missions". Your grey matter will thank me for this.
