But also, this movie looks nuts-not just in terms of what Director Robert Rodriguez and Writer James Cameron are trying to pull off visually, but the cast alone: Rose Salazar in the title role, Mahershala Ali, Jennifer Connelly, Michelle Rodriguez, Christoph Waltz ... and that's just a start. It follows the story of an abandoned cyborg who is brought back to life by a "cyborg-doctor" (future jobs sound awesome!), but with a blank slate for who or what she is or was.
