Alita: Battle Angel - a solid 8.8/10
It's not the genre I usually watch, but it was still very enjoyable and the action scenes were awesome. CGI was done really well too (except for Alita's eyes, which looked really weird at first...until you get used to them).
They did try to pack too much of the story into the movie though, so the ending was left hanging for a sequel (or even multiple sequels). The story was also somewhat predictable - don't expect too many plot twists. And the dialogue does have some cringe moments, but nothing unbearable.
The good thing though is that despite the violence, there weren't many gruesome bits (that is, if you're like me and hate those kind of things). They clearly did their best to tone it down to a PG level for entertainment. Overall it's a movie worth watching!
