An excellent Sci-fi adventure with strong diverse characters

I’m not sure why this film has a low score for positive role models. It has heroic characters from many different backgrounds who are fighting a magalomaniac to protect the environment in a dystopian future. The characters do not conform to stereotypes including a battle robot who is assumed by most people to be male as it has a deep masculine voice but identifies as a female. The special effects are excellent, the story is exciting. It is a brilliant film for anyone 12 or above (unless you hate sci-fi.) It is a shame that there are a couple of scenes that are quite graphic and some strong language otherwise this could easily be suitable for all ages.
