Film: Gen 13 The Movie
Gen 13: The Movie is a 1999 direct-to-video animated film based upon the comic book of the same name.

In the film, teenage Caitlin Fairchild is offered a place in an institute for gifted children. She soon learns that the school isn't really a school, but rather a military project to turn children with a special genetic structure into super soldiers. After developing incredibly enhanced abilities, Caitlin rebels against the program that created her. But all is not what it appears; there are some in the military who want to help her, and a deadly enemy is actually a long lost sibling.

It should be noted that Disney, of all companies, released the film during its direct-to-video heydays. It is much Darker and Edgier than its other direct-to-video projects and borders between PG-13 and R with intense action violence, profanity, brief nudity, and blood and gore. It was never released in the United States, but was in Australia.
