Alita: Battle Angel

This  poster has a distinct lack of large eyes. source: imdb

This was not too bad. The pacing at the beginning was a bit too slow, the world building could have been developed a little more. But overall this was quite enjoyable. 

The major issue I had with this was the stylised giant eyes of Alita. Yes this is based on a manga comic ( which is common style)  but why was this the only character with this style? It really drifted into the uncanny valley to the extent it made it difficult to watch at times. 

The overall editing seemed a little jarring at times going from extreme action to comically sentimental. This is probably a reflection of the source material and style perhaps.
