Synopsis

In the post-apocalyptic town of Iron City, Dr. Dyson Ido (Christoph Waltz) discovers an abandoned cyborg core named Alita (Rosa Salazar) and rebuilds her into a new body. There she befriends the young Hugo (Keean Johnson), who dreams of escaping the city to live in Zalem, the city above Iron City.

Together, with Dr. Ido, they discover that Alita is more than she seems, with an extraordinary past as an advanced deadly weapon, which attracts the attention of Chiren (Jennifer Connelly), a past associate of Ido, and Vector (Mahershala Ali), who runs the deadly sport Motorball. They pursue Alita for their own agendas.

In this pursuit Alita takes a stand to be more than her past and discover her humanity.

Based on Yukito Kishiro's 1990 manga series Battle Angel Alita.

  • 5 stars "Performance capture is here to stay. Disney is blocking sales of the DVD but I'm sure the people will show, with their money, that Disney's CEO is a loser. I look forward to owning this picture for my collection and I hope it will be followed by many more sequels. I hope Rosa Salazar shows up at the coming sci-fi conventions and wears her action outfit. If Cameron OKs it, they could have a large screen set up to show Alita as Rosa moves and says hello and signs autographs. I would be there and try to get my picture taken with Alita. I like the movie that much."
  • 5 stars "By far the best action movie I have ever seen. Alita is a movie that really draws you in, and the more that you see it, the more that you will want to see it."
  • 5 stars "Great story that has you caring about the characters and what they ate going through. All of this in a futuristic world that blends, tech and people into the story not in spite of the story"
