Alita: Battle Angel (2019)

US 122m, Colour
Director: Robert Rodriguez; Cast: Rosa Salazar, Christoph Waltz, Jennifer Connelly, Mahershala Ali, Ed Skrein, Jackie Earle Haley, Keean Johnson

Alita: Battle Angel is an entertaining and unexpectedly engaging science-fiction anime film about a discarded cyborg containing a human brain which is brought back to life by Dr. Dyson Ido – a cyber surgeon and part-time bounty hunter. As a surrogate for his deceased daughter, Alita eventually regains her memory and discovers her full potential in an outlandish robot-roller-derby. At the center of the story is Alita’s self-discovery, which has strong undertones of The Fifth Element, Pinocchio with a hint of Frankenstein and a serving of RoboCop (Klaus Ming August 2019).
