When Alita awakens with no memory in a future world she does not recognize, she is taken in by Ido, a compassionate doctor who realizes that somewhere in this abandoned cyborg shell is the heart and soul of a young woman. Doctor Ido tries to shield Alita from her mysterious history while her street-smart new friend Hugo offers instead to help trigger her memories. But when the deadly and corrupt forces that run the city come after Alita, she discovers a clue to her past.

This is a dystopian type movie where body augmentation and wealth allow you to live in the best part of the city high in the sky, while the rest of the poor and desperate fight to get the opportunity to ascend through battle.

The over the top fight scenes look fine but also don't make sense in a physics sense. Alita being fast AND strong makes no sense especially when she is stronger than a giant cybernetic man. The story is kind of pointless, the bounties and the rules behind them are pretty dumb especially when the sentinel type machines can instantly beat any assassin so why even use them. The movie sets up a sequel that will never happen. It's an alright action/sci-fi movie but don't get too invested.

Really, really, really well done, watched it just in plain DVD, I think it would be so awesome in 4K, or even blue ray. Worth the watch. Can't wait to see if number Two is as good and entertaining.

AWESOME !!!!!

Very slick- a world-class potboiler by a master chef. Utterly manipulative, and that's what we all want. ("manipulative" is deemed bad only when it's done against our ultimate interests; otherwise we love having our buttons pushed].
Making Alita with enlarged eyes is marketing genius. I'm surprised she wasn't made with a robot dog sidekick. The skateboard-like game theme ties right in. Videogame tie-ins anybody. The cliffhanger end comes as zero surprise.
There isn't an original atom in the whole film, but when you're this skilled at punching people's emotional buttoms you don't need any of that fancy-schmancy stuff, that gets in the way of moving product anyway.

A fun piece of brain candy, engaging villians and protanagnists. Fun storyline and cinematically beautiful.

Entertaining. It has heart, and was made by someone with a passion for the material it is based on.

Lots of the quotes from the main feature film is on IMDb already. The special feature "The Fall (The story of the great war)" is a must watch for the origin of Atila in the film that began 300 years after The Fall.

The fall of the worlds, it was the war to end all wars. There was no one left to fight, no war memorials, no wall with the names of the dead, no statues of heroes, only 50 cities in the ruins of great civilizations on two planets, tumbleweeds, skulls, crows. Only in Zalem did the lights stay on. Who attack first? It doesn't matter. Once it starts there is always a wrong which needs to be righted, always an attack which needs to be avenged. Memory is short, Hatred, Islam and truth were the first casualty. Humanity's failure is that it started. Our past began as one humans looked outward founding colonies among the stars. Earth and Mars were the ... Alita was born at this moment in history. An innocent human child brought to life on Mars. She was called Yoko until the war ...
