Especially since there are already a dozen movies a year that look like Iron Man.

Not a lot of people know this, but in 1991 the Dragonball series got a Taiwanese live action adaptation called Dragonball: The Magic Begins



The film is basically an unofficial live-action adaptation of the first Dragonball animated film Curse of the Blood Rubies, but so far it only exists in an English-dubbed version where Son Goku is called 'Monkey boy' and the dragonballs "pearls" and things like that.

There was also a South Korean adaptation in 1990 called Dragonball: Ssawora Son Goku, Igyeora Son Goku (Dragonball: Fight Son Goku, Win Son Goku)



This version adapts adapts the events of the Emperor Pilaf Saga and a little of the Saiyan Saga.

Nah, there's definitely a subtitled version.

Unfortunately there's also some weird special edition type tomfoolery going on where they redid the special effecs with CGI and it's damn near impossible to find the original!

Alita seems to be a hit among people on various forums I visit. I'm kinda surprised.

I saw it last Friday and, although it's not a masterpiece, I was happy to see they didn't modify/simplify the original material too much and gave some key scenes a full visual adaptation.

The actors/actresses also looked quite similar to the original characters.
The Iron City world is visually wonderful, full of details and background activity.

This adaptation could have been a LOT worse!
They kept the ending open for a sequel if it ever happens.

IMDB at 7.6/10 and RT 60% (critics) / 93% (audience)

Estimated budget of $200M, $130M at the Box Office worldwide so far.
