Alita: Battle Angel [2019] (a film review by Frank Ochieng).

Alita: Battle Angel [2019] (a film review by Frank Ochieng).

It should not be such a novelty act to witness resilient feminine empowerment at the helm of an adventurous SF-oriented manga film. It also should not be a curiosity as to why such an adventurous SF-oriented manga film be considered merely serviceable especially coming from the notable creative likes of heralded and profiled filmmakers James […]
