ALITA: BATTLE ANGEL delivers slam bang action, cutting edge visual effect,s and remarkable world-building skill on the part of director Robert Rodriguez.

It was also a bit early in the special effects department to bring his vision of Alita to life. After many years of languishing in developmental hell, Cameron finally chose Robert Rodriguez (Sin City, the Mariachi trilogy and Spy Kids) to helm the project, as he was busy working on Avatar 2.
The project began to take shape, even as big-name manga adaptations like Dragon Ball: Evolution and Ghost in the Shell failed to entrance audiences. And when the first trailer dropped, people were a bit... confused over the size of Rosa Salazar's eyes and it got mixed reactions. …
