Rodriguez' oeuvre is all over the place, sporting decent action flicks, noteworthy cult films, mediocre blockbusters and a surprising amount of films aimed at kids. More misses than hits if you ask me, but never dull.

Mediocre adaptation of a superior manga/anime. Rodriguez has plenty of money to play around with, but safe some pretty vistas and decent CG little remains but a silly, somewhat cheesy Hollywood production. The acting is rather terrible, Alita herself looks goofy and the severity of the world never really translates to the screen.

Something is just wrong. The weird mix of CG, cartoon visuals and live actors never really comes into its own. And it's not that I think something is inherently wrong with it, I for one loved Volckman's Renaissance. Sin City just isn't cool, harsh, kick-ass or edgy enough to pull this off.
