Alita Battle Angel
We here at How To Kill An Hour are HUGE comic book and anime fans, so when we first heard about Alita Battle Angel we had to check it out! It’s definitely one of the best anime movies we have seen for a LONG time. It’s full of action and excitement and it reminds us of a anime classic Ghost in the Shell! However, it’s not an anime movie as such as it’s a mixture of CGI/Live Action and it does it really well. The movie is based off of an anime but moulded into a live action setting.
From visionary filmmakers James Cameron (AVATAR) and Robert Rodriguez (SIN CITY), comes ALITA: BATTLE ANGEL, an epic adventure of hope and empowerment. When Alita (Rosa Salazar) awakens with no memory of who she is in a future world she does not recognize, she is taken in by Ido (Christoph Waltz), a compassionate doctor who realizes that somewhere in this abandoned cyborg shell is the heart and soul of a young woman with an extraordinary past.
As Alita learns to navigate her new life and the treacherous streets of Iron City, Ido tries to shield her from her mysterious history while her street-smart new friend Hugo (Keean Johnson) offers instead to help trigger her memories. But it is only when the deadly and corrupt forces that run the city come after Alita that she discovers a clue to her past – she has unique fighting abilities that those in power will stop at nothing to control. If she can stay out of their grasp, she could be the key to saving her friends, her family and the world she’s grown to love.
