Storyline

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.

Quotes

[Ido looks at the Berserker body Alita brought him]
Dr. Dyson Ido: Forget it. I won't do it.
Alita: But... But you have to. This would help us fight Grewishka and anyone else he sends after us. This body... it has the power I need. I feel a connection to it. I can't explain. This could be who I am.
Dr. Dyson Ido: You've been given a chance to start over, with a clean slate. How many of us get that?
Alita: Why did an enemy warship... respond to me? Because I knew that ship. I've been on others like it, haven't I? Haven't I?
Dr. Dyson Ido: Whatever you were, ...

Great movie experience in the theatre
5 February 2019 | by idzwanismailSee all my reviews

Marvelous effect with some great actions make this movie not to be missed seeing it in the big screen. But the thing I love the most is Alita herself. There were a few times I had a smile on myself watching Alita as she was so loveable and badass. Really really hope it will goes beyond just this one movie as the world building in Alita was so fascinating and of course, need to see more Alita.
