Alita: Battle Angel (2019) is yet another post-apocalyptic movie, that’s based on a popular manga series of the 1990s in Japan. It is 2563, the world as we know, is reduced to one small area called Iron City, residents of which are factory workers and are being ruled by overlords from a cybercity floating above them in the sky.
