Big effects, lifeless characters in sci-fi action tale.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Alita: Battle Angel is a post-apocalyptic sci-fi action movie about a resurrected teen cyborg named Alita (Rosa Salazar). Expect lots of fantasy violence and fighting, including punching, stabbing, slicing, death, and blood (both red human and blue cyborg). Female characters, including Alita, are sexualized and objectified, sometimes in an unsettling way. There's some flirting and kissing between Alita and a young man. Language includes one "f--k" and infrequent use of other words like "crap" and "piss." A secondary character drinks whisky in more than one scene, and a young man mentions having had a bit too much. Co-written by James Cameron, directed by Robert Rodriguez, and based on a manga by Yukito Kishiro, the movie is a guaranteed slam-dunk for fans of the above, but for others, it may feel lifeless and overly reliant on visual effects.
