The movie itself is a fantastic adaptation from the original manga. That's right, I loved this film so much that I purchased all of the source material and read it for myself. Cameron's screen play improves on the already brilliant original manga. The Japanese author, Yukito Kishiro, said that he thought the movie was "perfect" and "did not need anything added or taken away". I enjoyed this movie from beginning to end with the only problem being that I did not want it to end. Spectacular effort from the entire production staff, special effects crew, actors and directors. You can really tell that this movie was made with loving hands--much like Alita's first "doll" body made by Ido.
