Alita: Battle Angel


In 2563, Earth has been devastated; scientist Dyson Ido (Christoph Waltz) finds a female cyborg in the junkyard, gives her a new body and learns that she has great powers. This 3D adaptation of the Japanese manga series was long in the making, but the final result is worth a look. Suffers from a midsection that drags a bit, but itā€™s engaging in the beginning as we get to know the sweet and deadly Alita (Rosa Salazar in a motion capture performance) and filled with action near the end. Alitaā€™s charm and fighting skills, part of the visual effects, compensate for weak villains and an unsatisfying conclusion.

2019-U.S. 122 min. Color. Widescreen. Directed byĀ Robert Rodriguez. Screenplay: James Cameron, Laeta Kalogridis. Comic Book: Yukito Kishiro. Cast: Rosa Salazar (Alita), Christoph Waltz (Dyson Ido), Jennifer Connelly (Chiren), Mahershala Ali, Ed Skrein, Jackie Earle Haleyā€¦ Michelle Rodriguez, Edward Norton.
