This was a fairly fun movie that seemed to go on for too long. I'd watch it again but I'll never love it. Rebecca Ferguson was an enjoyable standout. It seems like the last half of the movie was a love letter to the Rock's ego. Oh well. In the end, it was mindless fun and I'll take that over trying to shove messages down my throat any day.
What a difference between KNIGHT and bay. Finally!
Travis Knight, you did it! Bumblebee is the ONLY live action Transformers movie! Forget all the trash that came before (I guess the first bay-formers movie was ok) but Travis Knight is a true believer.
Bumblebee was a love letter to fans of the original Transformers. Travis Knight understood what the fans have always wanted and he delivered it to us in great doses. We got the see the Transformers as they should be; looking like real robots instead of the ugly horror skeleton trash-bots of the Michael Bay movies.
The 80s setting and music only added to the charm of this movie. It was thrilling seeing so many of our favorite characters and meeting a few new ones. Hailee Steinfeld was an adorable character that you could cheer for and sympathize with over the course of her story arc.
I had no problem at all with John Cena. He wasn't given a ton to do, but this movie isn't meant to be an exercise in Shakespearean elitism. He did his part just fine and so did the rest of the cast.
There was great action, great special effects, and a solid, heartwarming story.
I wanted so SO bad for this to be a full reboot instead of a prequel. Just imagine being able to get more of this in the future and no more Michael Bay. But I believe Bay jealousy put his foot down and demanded that this movie tie in with his terrible films. That is why we didn't get to see Megatron on Cybertron in the Bumblebee movie.
I hope All Spark pictures can work some magic and wrangle this away from the previous Transformers universe and make it continue as its own thing.
I can't wait to pick up the blu-ray. Be sure to check out that soundtrack to!
A huge victory for western live action anime adaptations! Forget the critics!
I saw Alita: Battle Angel on Valentines Day and what a surprise.
This was cyberpunk sci-fi done right. The story was heartwarming, the action was incredible, and the CG work was fantastic. This movie has something for everyone.
You get amazing visuals, cool technology, some tenderness and romance, and a whole lot of amazing combat.
The changes from the anime/manga were just fine and made for a great story. It made you curious to learn so much more about Alita and her life before this movie.
I enjoyed all the actors and actresses in this movie. Obviously Rosa Salazar takes the top honors here but everyone did great and was convincing that this was a real world they existed in.
A lot of critics won't like this movie for the simple fact that Alita is not some feminist icon and there are not socio-political messages flying all over the place. Remember when movies were about fun and not a vehicle for someone's messages and preaching? Well Alita is just a fun entertaining ride and that is the ONLY reason we go to movies. We want to escape the troubles and issues of the world. not be preached to about them.
That said, girls can look up to Alita because she was awesome, strong, and very cool. She didn't have to brag about it or insult men to be awesome. She just is awesome.
I liked this movie so much, that I watched the anime again for the first time in years. Then I bought the digital manga for my tablet. I'm going to watch the movie at least three times and will certainly be picking up the blu-ray when it comes out.
I hope you will support this awesome film as well!
