| Don't analyze the script, just enjoy it for what it is: an action movie with a very likeable heroine and great VFX
I'm a 47 year old man who went to film school. I loved this movie. There's no point in trying to dissect what Alita: Battle Angel got right or wrong in terms of script or pacing or character development or whatever else film snobs like to blather on about. This is just a fun, action-packed first installment of what I hope will at least be a trilogy, if not more. And they couldn't have cast Alita more perfectly, even if her on-screen form is completely digital. Great movie. Tons of fun. Don't overthink it.

Trivia

Originally, "Gunnm" is a manga written and drawn by Yukito Kishiro and has nine volumes of about 220 pages each. These were published for the first time between 1990 and 1995 in the Business Jump magazine. The first French version was released between 1995 and 1998 by Glénat. The particularity of this manga, related to the cyberpunk genre, lies in its extreme violence and its very dark vision of humanity, which does not prevent some characters to have very deep feelings, contrasting radically with their environment . "Gunnm" takes place in a post-apocalyptic world in the twenty-sixth century, which is divided into two main parts: on the one hand the dump, a filthy and ultra-violent city populated mainly by cyborgs endowed with a human brain ( beggars, criminals, bounty hunters, etc.). And on the other side Zalem, a city floating several thousand meters above the dump whose inhabitants are humans living in an idyllic environment. These are two places in perfect opposition and well delimited by impassable boundaries. The majority of the manga's action takes place in the landfill. In this world ruled by the law of the strongest, a scientist, Dr. Dyson, discovers the carcass of a young abandoned cyborg. After having repaired it, and thus brought back to life, he calls it Alita ("Gally" in the manga). Having no memory of her past but showing impressive combative skills, she will try to unravel the mystery of her origins and better apprehend the post-apocalyptic world in which she evolves. This is to protect those she loves from terrifying enemies who are on their heels.


Quotes

Dr. Dyson Ido: Wait here.
Dr. Dyson Ido: Try not to kill anybody.


Goofs

When Alita disarms Zapan in the bar, the sword bounces across the table and falls off the far side. But in the next shot, the sword is at her feet.
