The Internet Hates Alita: Battle Angel’s Anime Eyes

Written by


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.

      Its good in a anime movie but not in a live action movie in my opinion but that’s my opinion people have different taste an I’m cool with that it would be a boring world if we all had the same taste lol

    The Internet hated Gal Gadot as WW and they ended up loving her.
    The internet hated Affleck as Batman and now they can’t have enough of the Batffleck.

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

      That i know yes, but the original name of the show is Battle Angel Alita. And i must agree, Gally is such an innocent sounding name, right before she rips your asshole via your left nostril

      The movie is going to be called Alita: Battle Angel.

      So you should be directing your complaints about the name at 20th century fox.

    Feels to me that your article is just created to back your own opinion. One can always find negative opinions if you look for it.
