Alita: Battle Angel
Alita: Battle Angel mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When Alita is playing the street version of motor ball she knocks over Tanji. In the next shot Tanji is following her in the pack as she scores, then the shot switches back to him on the ground.

Continuity mistake: Alita and Hugo are talking; he just told her clumsily that she's heavy, and asks to see her hand. You can see walk past Alita a group of punks, but the same punks are also checking out of the stalls behind Hugo, with their colored purple and green mohawks visible in the background. (00:11:55)

Continuity mistake: During the game, Alita disposes of the black cyborg guy with the yellow paint, the same one she met at Kansas. She rips his arm off and uses it to spike the head of the colossal dude with the morning star-like weapon. You could see as the arm was being ripped, that debris and a big metallic piece of scrap were left behind. However, when the 2 next opponents are skating towards Alita making her take off fast, there is no such trace of debris beside the whole body of the guy. (01:33:00)

Trivia: James Cameron originally intended to direct the film, and began work on it way back in 1995. He kept pushing it back, as he felt the technology to make the film hadn't been perfected yet, and also because he became attached to several other projects in the meantime. Eventually, Cameron relinquished the director's seat to Robert Rodriguez and instead focused on writing and producing the film. The film was finally released in 2019... twenty-four years after Cameron started work on it.

Trivia: Alita is portrayed as having extremely large eyes in the movie. This was done as producer James Cameron wanted to literally translate the style manga and anime (where characters often have stylized over-sized eyes) to a live-action film.
