Alita: battle angel

*ing: Rosa Salazar, Christoph Waltz, Jennifer Connelly, Mahershala Ali, Ed Skrein, Jackie Earle Haley, Keean Johnson

Rated: 5.5/10

Directed by Robert Rodriguez, Alita: Battle Angel, is set in a post-apocalyptic society in which cyborgs walk the Earth. Interestingly, there is nothing cold or mechanical about this film which is based on a book by Yukito Kushiro. The films keeps you engaged with relationships and emotions that one can identify with.

 One can’t also not fall in love with those big eyes. The actors should be given their due as they breathe life in this film.

While the movie may be about a cyborg that has been brought back to life in the laboratory, but it’s also about self-discovery, loneliness, the desire for a better life and the love. The central character, Alita, opens her eyes to find herself in a time and place overtaken by darkness, her approach is all about hope and enthusiasm of a teenager. This makes you empathise with her even though she is a killing machine — a hunter warrior — the bounty hunters that are the only form of law enforcement in Iron City.

The good part is that Rodriguez has kept the best part of the film to a cliffhanger ending.
