      You tied the whole movie together, no matter how amazing the acting, no matter how amazing the sound design and everything else is, when the music is off in a scene, it can make it fall flat. If it's simply ok it just isn't noticeable. I know there are tons of movies where I love a scene but couldn't tell you for the life of me what music was scoring it.
      What you did added to every single moment, freakin' amazing work!

      Dude, you and this movie both didn't get enough credit. It was a thrilling, emotional, and fun experience for me as a viewer, and your score was a HUGE contribution to all that. It accentuated every scene perfectly, always adding the right feeling to every scene. So many modern movies have such bland, 'safe' scores that end up just being background noise, but yours was powerful and memorable. Thank you so much for being a BIG factor in how amazing this movie was. I just hope more people will realize as much over time. Great job dude!

    I mean, i have her avatar, so i might not to speak, but, ahm... i read Manga after i saw first few trailers, just to compare how big fail it's gonna be. Ended up watching movie 7 times, spend 200$ on tickets just to take whole my family to see it, bought Steelbook (i never do that) and whole collection of hard Cover mangas. Movie is great, full of action, well made CGI and most importantly - Alita. Thanks Rosa for that. Oh, and it was refreshing to see movie not relying on CGI army fights, instead they did focus on well choreographed 1v1 fights (mostly) They did stay close to Source, and i hope there will be sequel, too bad, most of western viewers don't really get Japanese story telling, as this is story about Alita, and nothing else matters, but here we go. Will thank for China if sequel will happen.
    P.S. if it have more Wins then Sins, i am cool with that :D

    Opinion of somebody who doesn't read manga, or watch anime: the people knocking this movie for its plot are being far too critical. It made sense, none of it felt too forced, and damn did it get me in the feels. Multiple times.
    Also: I couldn't decide for a very long time while watching whether I thought her face was totally computer-rendered, or if it was post-processed Snapchat-filter-style. That is bar none the most impressive animation that has ever been produced, and people aren't giving it enough credit. A lot of people deserve to retire rich for bringing that to life.
    Were the eyes odd? Yes. Were they the oddest thing in the movie? Hell no. Did they spoil anything for me? Not even close.

    Alita is a fantastic movie! Pitch perfect coming of age story. I'm not a giant manga fan. I watch the occasional anime. This movie was able to suck me into the world which doesn't seem easy to do these days. Most movies today don't focus on characters, which is a shame. Cameron and Rodriguez should be proud of what they achieved. Salizar was brilliant. Looking at you, Junkie XL, for the score that expanded the universe so good.

    I am a 59 yr old jazz pianist expat living in Copenhagen. I don't even know what manga or anima is. But I get that this is an extrodinary cenimatic experience. I live on the barest shoestring budget ;self enforced . So I haven't seen it yet. Intrigued!

    I watched it expecting nothing. I'd never read the Manga or seen the anime. Me and my dad just thought it looked good and my dad also knows a lot about CGI and motion capture and all that cool visual stuff and likes to see it in action (he is a level designer for Call of Duty, the game that just came out he worked on). I like to as well and he tells me a little about it sometimes. We thought it was good. There might have been a couple things we didn't quite understand or didn't think were perfect but they weren't significant enough to remember off the top of my head. I also felt the movie left enough "loose ends" (that is in quotes because that is not exactly the words I'm looking for but I don't know how to say it exactly so I'm hoping whoever reads this gets what I'm trying to say) so that there is room for a good sequel that could possibly be even better.

    There's a ton of awesome stuff in this movie. The special effects were great. And you're dead-on about the uncanny valley going away. But boy did I think there was too much going on. She becomes a pro athlete AND a bounty hunter. She saves her boyfriend from an assassin, puts him in a robot body, and then watches him fall to his death all in like a 20-minute span. I'd like a sequel, too, but I do wish this had been a little more focused and hope that a sequel can find that focus to make a tighter story.

    Alita: Battle Angel is so underrated. They needed to pump this movie instead people really didn't know to much about it. I was very impressed with the CGI in this movie, especially the fighting scenes. This movie already has a cult following and it just came out. Hope they make a sequel.

    Do you make love to all the movies you watch or just this one?
    Plus did you know 99 being a precursor to 100 is a perfect nonary. Seeking to be 99 is the same as saudi seeking to be the number 1. 99 is what happens right before nature takes over and starts showing off. It's perfect because 9+9=18=8+1=9 Rotate it for 6 and you can use the point of numerical 6 to create a perfect distortion of a romantic entanglement which will eventually go right back to 99. Also Kyukyu or kuku. So 99 would be "The brink of Insanity" which is where this story is placed. A world in flux. Alzheimers and schizophrenic brains are at the wavelength of 99 then work backwards to 1 for newborn baby, like a revved motor. And this is what happens when you can hear peoples heart rates for a living. Saving people from heart attacks is rewarding stuff but it'd just be nice if they'd pay for it. I love money, not dog treats. If you ever wonder how a dog can detect a brain schism it's because the heart attack actually starts down in your feet and your blood pressure convolutes in the brain so if your footsteps change drastically, and you start to act like vertigo is happening, then you're either about to flatline or stroke. If it's not either of those things from your blood pressure then the only thing left is heart attack. Thinking back to kuku, the japanese are heavily influenced by western culture. They see as untrustworthy equals. The cuckoo is one of their passions. So Alita is the perfect example of the misplaced cuckoo that becomes a leader. All japanese narratives resemble animals in some way. So this would be the phoenix with the wings outstretched. Each narrative makes a bloodline map on paper. Incredibly fun to draw out.

    p.s i love how 'deep' you go ;)

    I think they should ve included Yugo's "funeral" that bit when they put his arm attached to a baloon so it can rise upwards towards Zalem, as he always dreamed. That would give some bittersweet closure to their tragic love story

    I saw this movie with some friends of mine, which worked out perfectly since none of my family wanted to see it. I have never been a big manga reader or anime watcher, and I had never heard of the manga until I saw a picture of Alita on the Fox website. I only wanted to see it because of the filmmakers attached to it (James Cameron and Robert Rodriguez) and because I love the VFX work of WETA Digital. Seeing this in theaters was an absolute blast. I love this movie! I was never once bothered by Alita's eyes or the uncanny valley aspect of her. If anything, her eyes are one of her defining attributes, and you could really see the detail that the artists at WETA put into them. The action was intense and fun, and I fell in love with Alita as a character. Rosa Salazar gave it her all and I really hope she gets more roles because of it. I'm dying to see a sequel and see what Edward Norton could do as Nova. Please filmmakers, if you're watching this video and reading these comments, we want a sequel! We need more films like this!

    I kinda may have watched this movie just so I could watch this video.

    I had some issues with the acting, especially in the early parts of the film (Hugo did not work for me until later, for some reason). But once things kicked into gear, I definitely enjoyed it.

    I'd watch a sequel, even if it brings out the anime avatars again.

    I read manga... Years ago. Like just after elementary school, and I'm almost 30 rn? I only remebered bits here and there, but I remembered that I adored Alita. Watched the movie about hour ago. I... I loved it. Really really much.
    I could sell my heart for a sequel!
    I belive it's not only great action movie, it's also one of these movies that lefts You with warm feeling around Your heart. A movie that makes You feel kinda more naive and idealistic. Kinda more... Pure. Dunno, maybe I'm the only one, but I belive this is a type of movies we actually really could use.

    Alita's first fight in this movie was so refreshing and new as well as amazingly well coreographed, it legitimately caught me by surprise, and i was speechless. This clean, tight coreography in this movie was just incredible to witness for the first time, even the avengers movie didn't have such that as such a strongpoint. Just amazing

    IMHO, this is the best Action movie of 2019.

    I have seen the anime and loved it enough to go see this but I was apprehensive. The only really good live action remakes have come from Japan in my opinion but that's not to say there have been decent attempts. I said to my fiancee that if I didn't see the bridge to Zalem scene I wouldn't forgive them for making this movie. The uncanny valley for me was very quickly to relinquish as it was not only done so well but her grounded character made her relate-able. The most astonishing thing for me was the action and power on show. It was very much in the anime style and they nailed it down with excellent scenes, I often found myself leaning into attacks and punches at the cinema such was the weight of the attacks, something that rarely happens when I'm at the movies. My only wish is that this was rated R and we would have got all of the gore, disgusting and horrific nature of humans barely surviving in this depressive world where the rich stay on top and the poor scrounge for a living. Even the anime had nudity but it wasn't sexual, it was showing how it was used as a tool to survive. This movie could have become a real cult classic being R rated and being way more dark and gritty. Something Anime has done really well, showing how brutal life can be through big cartoonish anime eyes.

  • Funktastic Ed

    Everything great, ruined by one main flaw.
    Adapting three tomes of the manga, three storylines in one, cut it paste it differently put things out, add new plots to fill holes make shortcuts here and there, overexplain to make the storyline likely, but you'll never be as fluid and good as the original.
    That's like trying to mix the thre first Harry potter movie in one, even the best montage can't save such a doomed project.
    Yes the movie (like the 95 anime) tries to adapt three different narrative arcs of the original manga in a two hour movie, and that's impossible to do correctly.
    Just a simple exemple, the first book had no motorball, and no Zapan Hugo story, the main plot was the Birth of Alita, and how she becomes a hunter warrior, then Grewishka (Makaku) trying to get revenge over Alita after she kicked his ass.
    Still the first manga had largely enough material to make a great movie on its own, the confrontation with Makaku (Grewishka) was brillant and smart.
    As an exemple, in the movie Grewishka is no more the main vilain, now he is just a big stupid robot who follows orders, its character have lost its substence that's what happens when you cut things and paste others, to mix diffeent storylines, in the manga he was a runaway, with its own logic and justifications, he was not just "bad" and he had no master.
    Although it is a beautifull movie with brilliant production, it missed one crucial point wich all modern movies does , it never takes the time to let us enjoy and Watch its beauty, everything is too fast and there's a plot overdose, too many things going on in short moments.
    Everything feels like James Cameron and Rob Rodriguez wanted to show too much in one movie, they wanted to give too much, like they couldn't wait to show us Zapan, and Motorball.
    We are not drugged with speed when we go to theater we don't need overcut action scènes and rushed character development, we Don't need the movie to kick us in the head, give us time to enjoy your work for christ sake.
