This was an interesting movie to say the least. As for the synopsis, it follows a cyborg who was revived by a scientist (Christoph Waltz), however she can't remember a thing. So the film is about her going on a quest to find out who exactly she is and what she can ultimately do. Along the way, she gains both friends and enemies.
In the background of her life's story, there is also what the world has become. The head honcho in the sky, where everyone down on Earth wants to go (kind of reminds me of Elysium, but sadly we never really find out what's up there in this film). Alita discovers that she has amazing abilities and she runs off to use them for her advantage - earning money and having fun.
The movie itself is fairly entertaining. It's action packed and set with a lot of thrills. The ending sequence was very thrilling and fast paced. The fighting and slow-motioned scenes were fun to watch too. The special effects in this film were good, they felt different than other sci-fi films like this I've seen. I thought it was well put together.
Would recommend. 4/5. Liked it.
