Co-star Keean Johnson plays the romantic interest Hugo a troublesome boy whose dream is to go to the big city above, Zalem and will do anything to get there. Directed by Robert Rodriguez, written by James Cameron and Laeta Kalogridis and produced by Cameron and Jon Landau the film was set for greatness. The team did a wonderful job creating a new world for viewers to dive into with a wonderful cast to bring it all alive.
The fast-paced action movie features some very well-done fight scenes that are very reminiscent to Japanese anime and will have you on the edge of your seat. The visual effects are stunning, bringing Alita alive using the face and body of Rosa as a canvas, it is so well done she fits seamlessly in with her much less cyborg co-stars. The movie will take you on a rollercoaster of emotions as it dives through amazing scenery of the movies main set, the fallen city and its outskirts as you find out the secrets behind who Alita really is.
