The Internet Hates Alita: Battle Angel's Anime Eyes

Robert Rodriguez and James Cameron recently teamed up for 20th Century Fox’s Alita: Battle Angel, a live-action film based on Yukito Kishiro’s original manga. Unfortunately, the Internet hasn’t taken too kindly to the anime-accurate eyes of the female lead.

Alita: Battle Angel is set in a post-apocalyptic future and follows Alita (portrayed by Rosa Salazar), a cyborg who is found in a garbage and rebuilt by a doctor. Completely devoid of her memory, all she has to cling to is a legendary cyborg martial art known as Panzer Kunst.

Fans find it very difficult to look past the glaringly obvious VFX enhanced eyes. It’s hard to deny that the giant eyes look strange in a live-action film populated with live-action humans. They make the character look animated.

The cast for also includes Jennifer Connelly, Christoph Waltz, Ed Skrein, Michelle Rodriguez, Mahershala Ali, and Jackie Earle Haley.

Alita: Battle Angel hits theaters on July 20, 2018.

    ‘The Internet’ is just the loudest, brain-damaged kid in the world; it won’t know what he really wants until it sees it.
