One of the major draws for ‘Alita: Battle Angel’is its amazing fight scenes and this new clip titled “Ambush Alley” is an excellent demonstration as to the kind of action sequences we have to look forward to! The vast majority of live-action manga and anime translations so far have failed to be well received by global audiences and as this is one of my favorites, I’m hoping that we’ll finally have a different outcome. Especially as the creator seems to love what he’s seen so far which is praise that we don’t normally tend to get from those who started some of these franchises.
With the primary complaint of this iteration being the size of Alita’s eyes which have since recently been slightly reduced, here’s hoping that won’t end up turning away audiences.

The fight sequence looks like it could end up being fun but how much new it is bringing to the table could be questionable. I’d love for this to deliver a solid viewing experience but I think all manga fans are wary of what Hollywood has been giving us so far.

Visionary filmmakers James Cameron (AVATAR) and Robert Rodriguez (SIN CITY) create a groundbreaking new heroine in ALITA: BATTLE ANGEL, an action-packed story of hope, love, and empowerment. Set several centuries in the future, the abandoned Alita (Rosa Salazar) is found in the scrapyard of Iron City by Ido (Christoph Waltz), a compassionate cyber-doctor who takes the unconscious cyborg Alita to his clinic. When Alita awakens she has no memory of who she is, nor does she have any recognition of the world she finds herself in.
Everything is new to Alita, every experience a first. As she learns to navigate her new life and the treacherous streets of Iron City, Ido tries to shield Alita from her mysterious past while her street-smart new friend, Hugo (Keean Johnson), offers instead to help trigger her memories. A growing affection develops between the two until deadly forces come after Alita and threaten her newfound relationships. It is then that Alita discovers she has extraordinary fighting abilities that could be used to save the friends and family she’s grown to love. Determined to uncover the truth behind her origin, Alita sets out on a journey that will lead her to take on the injustices of this dark, corrupt world, and discover that one young woman can change the world in which she lives.
‘Alita: Battle Angel’ will be fighting her way into your local theater on February 14th, 2019!
