Adam Johnson’s review published on Letterboxd:
"Alita: Battle Angel" is a great 3D spectacle with an excellent lead and an engaging world. These make the movie succeed even with a meandering story and some wasted characters and actors. Still, I would put money down and see a sequel tomorrow.
(Side note: I thought as the movie ended that it's a great pilot. Could cinema be reverting back to the serial days as television becomes more cinematic? Would audiences accept that if the multi-million dollar spectacle and overarching story was great enough? Are we already there?)
