Alita is just like a typical teenage girl.Those are the two sides brought up by "Alita: Battle Angel," our film entry into the manga world of artist Yukito Kishiro and imagined for the screen by producer James Cameron and director Robert Rodriguez.Alita is both machine and human and the big-budget screen adaptation is both live action and computer generated, each element present in Alita herself, played with equal parts tenderness and ferocity by Rosa Salazar. "Alita: Battle Angel," which, in the end, needs more humor and less violence, kind of staggers quietly to its end. A sequel isn't just hinted at -- it's practically dangled in front of our eyes as Alita looks heavenward to the next battlefield in the sky city. Like Hailee Steinfeld in "Bumblebee," Salazar's Alita is part of a welcome wave of films about complex young women who know how to handle even the worst machines."Alita: Battle Angel" is now showing in Beirut-area cinemas.
