Alita: Battle Angel [Movie Review]

7:30 AM 19 Comments A+ a-

When I watched the trailer a few months ago, I am intrigued to watch Alita: Battle Angel. And when I learnt that James Cameron did the screenplay, that settles it for me. A must watch!

Slowly, Alite discover her past live as a warrior who battles for the freedom. The memory comes to her during her most critical and life-threatening moments. And along the way, she learns more about herself and her 'father'. 

Alita also feels a strong emotion towards Hugo, who later teaches her to play a gladiator-style sport called Motorspot. And as she unravels more of her past, she has to battle her way and life with other machines with magnificient skills - sent to kill her. Along the way, she learns the history and the truth about Dr Ido too. 

This gotta be the shortest review I have ever written as I do not want to further share or it will become a spoiler.

Will Alita be able to fully understand her purpose of 'life'?

MY REVIEW
Plot: 4.3/ 5.0. I kinda love the whole plot of the amnesia-cyborg-saving-the-world plot. But there are some kind of a disengage relations in betweens (I think this was done purposelly so that there will be sequels). A fun, scientific and lots of beautifully choreographed actions in this one. A lot of storylines for a two-hour movie. 

Cast: 4.0/ 5.0 Everyone delivers. Some more than other and some much less - at some points I even asked my friend 'is she gonna have some lines to deliver at all, or is she just gonna stand there with no words at all?'.

Will I watch it again: I will, in my room.
