Alita is a creation from an age of despair. Found by the mysterious Dr. Ido while trolling for cyborg parts, Alita becomes a lethal, dangerous being. She cannot remember who she is, or where she came from. But to Dr. Ido, the truth is all too clear. She is the one being who can break the cycle of death and destruction left behind from Tiphares. But to accomplish her true purpose, she must fight and kill. And that is where Alita's true significance comes to bear. She is an angel from heaven. She is an angel of death.Written by
Upon the release of the film's first theatrical trailer, Alita's appearance, especially her big eyes, have provoked strong mixed reactions from audiences. Director Robert Rodriguez, in an interview with Empire magazine on December 8, 2017, explained the decision for the design of Alita's eyes: "It was always Jim [Cameron]'s intention to create a photo-realistic version of the manga eyes that we're so accustomed to seeing. We really wanted to honour that tradition and see that look standing next to any human character. To have the right person to emote behind it was really essential. Her origins are in the film and you understand why she looks that way. If the eyes are the windows to the soul, we have some pretty big windows. You can see a lot going on in there! When it gets to the emotional scenes it's really uncanny and striking. And captivating!" See more »
When Alita is given a bar of chocolate she takes several bites out of it. The shape of the bitten chocolate bar changes between shots and is never consistent with the bites that she takes. See more »
I don't know what to say... This movie is perfect as an Action-Sci Fi movie!.
Not too much drama. Just enough.
Cool action/fighting scene. Fights are not too long. Short and sweet.
I guess people who rated this so low.. they don't even like a Scifi/Action genre or don't know how to enjoy this type of movie.
CGI is always very smooth except at the near ending scene where they going up on the pipe. Real face of his boyfriend with cyborg body looks disappointing...not neat at all...
We need a sequel!!! better.. badder!!
