Alita: Battle Angel

Alita: Battle Angel ★★

The world is so poorly developed, and the clumsy dialogue, artificial plot, and shallowness weigh down the impressive visual effects and welcome message about female survivors, attempting to be an empowering film with a badass cyborg-turned-RoboCop-roller-derby hunter warrior originated from an anime comic but instead turning into a cheesy, lifeless video game movie.
