“Alita: Battle Angel” is a pretty decent science fiction film. The movie will remind you of the Matrix Trilogy.
Alita (Rosa Salazar) awakens with no memory of who she is or where she comes from. She has been “Rebuilt” so to speak by Dr. Dyson Ido (Christoph Waltz). Alita doesn’t understand this futuristic world she now lives in. Dr. Ido takes her in and provides a place for Alita to live.
Day by Day Alita ventures out to discover the world she is unfamiliar with. She makes some friends and attempts to live a normal life, but there are people who know what she is and where she came from and they will stop at nothing to destroy her. Dr. Ido attempts to shield Alita from her past, but Alita has other ideas. The story unfolds from there…
The story is moving and very entertaining. The cinematography is awesome. There is a lot of action, suspense and intrigue. “Alita: Battle Angel” is definitely a visual feast.
This is a 3 Star Movie!!
Marvel’s “Deadpool” is a fictional antihero that appears in Marvel’s Comics. Deadpool would fit in nicely with the Mutants from X-MEN.
“Deadpool” is a rather obnoxious, profanity riddled, irritating film. It has its good parts. The action scenes and camera angles are awesome, but there is so much irritation that the good parts get lost.
The story is about how “Deadpool” came to be. A former Special Forces operative turned Mercenary, Wade Wilson finds out he has Lung Cancer and may not live long. Wade is subjected to an experiment that leaves him with the ability to heal himself rapidly if injured. Because of his altered looks, he chooses the name “Deadpool”. “Deadpool” then goes on a mission to find the man who is responsible for nearly destroying his life. The story unfolds from there…
If there wasn’t so much profanity, nudity and irritation this would be an excellent first installment.
If you can get past the irritation of “Deadpool” it’s worth a look. The paid critics gave this movie 4 1/2 stars. It will only receive 3 stars from me.
A new installment of “The Transporter” series “Transporter: Refueled” finds its sexy driver being lured into a job by a bevy of beautiful women who have s serious ax to grind.
Unlike the previous installments the plot is not clearly defined.
“The Transporter: Refueled” does offer a bunch of decent action-packed sequences, some crazy cool driving, a nice soundtrack and there are a few interesting moments between Frank Martin Sr. (Ray Stevenson) and Frank Martin (Ed Skrein), but other than that the movie falls short of its known purpose.
If you are a fan of “The Transporter” series you may fine this installment interesting otherwise you can wait for “Transporter: Refueled” to come out on cable.
This is a 2 Star Movie!
