Alita: Battle Angel
Starring: Maharshala Ali, Christoph Waltz, Rosa Salazar
Duration: 122 min
From visionary filmmakers James Cameron (Avatar) and Robert Rodriguez (Sin City) comes Alita: Battle Angel, an epic adventure of hope and empowerment. When Alita (Salazar) awakens with no memory of who she is in a future world she doesn’t recognise, she’s taken in by Ido (Waltz), a compassionate doctor who realises 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 (Johnson) offers instead to help trigger her memories. But it’s 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.
Contains moderate violence, bloody images, infrequent strong language.
