Alita: Battle Angel
This movie is a SciFi, cyberpunk action film based on the 1990s Japanese manga series Gunnm (also known as Battle Angel Alita) by Yukito Kishiro. It tells the story of Iron City’s doctor who finds a cyborg head and torso with a human brain intact and alive. He puts her in a robotic body and helps her adjust to this new world.
Alita has no memory of who she was or where she came from, but slowly, her past returns including how to fight. Everyone in Iron City wants to go to Zalem, the sky city. But few make it there and none return to tell the tale. When Alita goes up against Zalem’s leader, Nova, she needs the help of ancient technology.
A really great story with awesome effects. The only downside is the ending was open-ended without a satisfying conclusion. Hopefully, they’ll make another and complete the storyline.
My rating 4.2 stars out of 5
Andrea R. Cooper writes fantasy, paranormal, and historical romance.
Her favorite childhood memories revolved around creating vibrant characters for her friends and then acting out their adventures. Inside her fantasy worlds of darkened forests, dragon-filled glades, and iced islands, nothing was banned. From the ethereal Elvin to the most maligned Vampires, all were welcome in her fictional realities, a stark contrast to her home, where the magical and mythical was forbidden.
