|Judging the movie “Alita” by the trailer might not be the right thing to do as the trailer didn’t do any justice in explaining what this movie will really be about. Hence my waiting a while before finally making up my mind to go see it after much hesitation. |
Well I hate to break it to you but I was wrong, Alita wasn’t bad at all. At first it was difficult to tell if the movie was going to be fully animated or fully human. One thing that was certain though, the fact that the movie was going to tilt to the side of “AI’ Artificial intelligence and robots.
I was so shocked and surprised at how I ended up liking a movie I never believed I would even watch in the first place. There is just something about this movie that will make you happy and angry at the same time when it was over.
This movie was directed by Robert Rodriguez and written by James Cameron, Laeta Kalogridis, Robert Rodriguez, it was a science-fiction with a bit of romance too, as always.
I found it kind of weird also how a robot with no real heart or mind could fall in love with human, but they were clear from the beginning that this story was based on any real life story.
They were a few nice things about this movie I thought to share, I loved the car racing scenes and the effects watching it in 4D made it even better, you should try it, the way the seats moved, the sound effects and the smoke when there was a stop, everything in a 4D like Silverbird would make you enjoy an action movie better, at some point it felt like I was going off my seat, but then I had to hold on tight.
Well for me I always love real life story, the ones that seemed true and we could relate with, but the truth it is important that we have a balance between true life based stories and just enjoying a made up story, this was one of them, but it was nice.
To get a hang of this movie, you have to be patient as all will become clearer towards the tail end, do not leave or blink as you might get confused, mixing up the good guys and the bad guys together.
The movie started slowly and it was basically about a young girl called “Alita” she arrived on earth from another planet through a weird spaceship and was picked up by a very good doctor who took in like his daughter, took her in and gave her a second chance, he gave her a new earthly body she could function with.
Alita was gifted and talented, she was very strong, stronger than her peers, and deep down in her heart she knew she was born for greatness, she knew she was sent down for a reason to help save her people from the evil man.
As Alita stayed on she became stronger and wiser to take on the fight, along the line, she met a young guy and fell in love with him, she loved him so much that she was willing to give him her heart.
So she decided to help me, she decided to fight the strongest of the bad guys, she had to defeat them for him to get the required points to move to the other side.
