Rule 5 Sunday: Alita – Battle Angel

“Hats off, gentlemen, a genius”
– Robert Schumann on the young Mozart

We can say the same of Robert Rodriguez, who brought Frank Miller’s Sin City graphic novels to the big screen with an all-star cast, not to mention the highly successful Spy Kids, From Dusk Till Dawn, Machete, and sequels to the preceding. He’s done it again with Battle Angel Alita, a live-action rendition of a two-part anime based on the long-running manga series Gunnm (Gun Dream). Alita has some star talent as well – Christoph Walz plays the surgeon & bounty-hunter Doc Ido, Jennifer Connelly is awesome as his ex-wife Chiren, and Mahershala Ali reminds me very much of Wesley Snipes as he plays the role of Vector, the commissioner of motorball and crime lord. Rosa Salazar has the lead role as the little cyborg girl recovered by Doc Ido from the Scrapheap, and rebuilt using what turns out to be the cyborg body intended for his murdered daughter. It’s a great movie, an improvement on the original anime, and very much worth your time. Here we see Alita just before beginning the motorball match that will make her Final Champion.

Hail, Nova…
