Alita: Battle Angel ★★★★½

this is a really good movie with some features that may alienate some, and a great one because of, first: fantastic, powerful action and fx, and foremost: rosa salazar shaping alita into such a tender and yet unflinchingly fierce presence within a hard, dangerous world. that cgi-augmented anime face conveys more subtle, complex, and vivid emotion than any other human visage in the film, by miles upon miles. we love alita because she is good; we want to be alita because she is strong.
