Watched Alita: Battle Angel (2019) from letterboxd.com
When Alita awakens with no memory of who she is 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 with an extraordinary past.

I liked it a bit more on second watch. The visual effects are way better than I remember. I dunno if I just took against those big eyes.

I think another factor is that now I have seen Rotoscoped Rosa Salazar (in Undone) I can see her performance in Alita, and somehow that elevates it for me. Like you can see the Andy Serkis in Gollum (right?) You appreciate what the actor is doing under the CGI that bit more.

The script clangs a bit in places and I can, in no way buy Waltz and that massive hammer.

I kind of would have liked to see the second part now. Shame.

★★★½
