Alita: Battle Angel (out Feb 14) is a futuristic action flick based on the manga series written by Yukito Kishiro. A robot girl with a human brain tries to find her place in the world after being discovered in a junkyard by a cyber-surgeon. There are some strong action pieces (e.g. a motor ball scene) but some characters feel very one-dimensional. Grade: B-.
