U.S. Release Date: 2018-06-01
MPAA Rating: "PG-13" (Scenes of Peril, Disturbing Images, Brief Nudity)
Director: Baltasar Kormakur
Cast: Shailene Woodley, Sam Claflin
An honest, if somewhat neutered, account of what happens in situations like this, and worth seeing if you have an interest in (Wo)man vs. Nature battles.
Although competently made and appealing in an exaggerated soap opera-tinged fashion, it fails to make a strong case for its raison d’être.
Despite offering a riveting, high-energy origin story, "Alita" lacks a genuine ending and this leaves the narrative frustratingly unfinished.
