ALITA: BATTLE ANGEL (12A) HHH HH Alita[...].

ALITA: BATTLE ANGEL (12A) HHH HH ALITA: Battle Angel is a futuristic action adventure directed by Robert Rodriguez, which sacrifices emotional storytelling at the altar of dizzying special effects. The title character - a female cyborg with fractured memories of her shadowy past - is realised in haphazard strokes by state-of-the-art performance capture and digital effects.

The script is half-baked tasted far sweeter when Ridley Scott was in the Blade Runner kitchen Gary Ross was cooking the original Hunger The tug of war between spectacle and substance threatens to tear apart Rodriguez's uneven picture, which punctuates Alita's personal odyssey with turbo-charged sequences of a futuristic contact sport called Motorball, which combines a roller derby with the slam-bang destruction
