Battle Angel Alita, originally titled "Gunnm" in Japan, is a manga that started way back in 1990 about Alita, an amnesiac robot who is rebuilt after being found in a junkyard and discovers that there is something special about her. "Alita:Battle Angel" is an action-packed sci-fi story of a woman's discovery of her own abilities and her fight for global change. We'd barely raise an eyebrow if this were a cartoon, but she's played by a real actress (Rosa Salazar) with the aid of "realistic" CG animation - and boy, do they look weird.
