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. Written by Anthony Harmon

Quotes

[Alita looks at a picture of Ido's daughter]
Alita: This was your daughter? You built this body for her?
Dr. Dyson Ido: Her name was Alita. She was really looking forward to waking up with legs that could run.
Alita: You built her a pair of fast legs.
Dr. Dyson Ido: She never got to use them. She was murdered.
Alita: What happened?
[pause]
Dr. Dyson Ido: A patient of mine came to the clinic one night, looking for drugs. I was a tuner for the Motorball games, and I had made a machine body for him of obscene strength. He was my demon coming back to me.

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.
