Steamboy poster


Ray is a young wunderkind inventor living in Victorian England. His life is turned upside down when he receives a special package hailing from the United States, sent by his grandfather, Lloyd Steam. The package contains a device called a Steam Ball, a device so powerful that it can drive any machine that requires steam with a nearly limitless amount of energy. Ray is instructed to not let the Steam Ball fall into the wrong hands, which include the mighty O'Hara Foundation, who desperately want to bring the Steam Ball back into their control so they can achieve their less than noble goals. He will need to use every bit of his brilliance in order to dodge the countless goons that are sent to snatch the device from him. It will be a battle between good and evil, a battle for redemption, a battle for the future!

Katsuhiro Otomo (the creator and director of Akira) really shines in this steampunk adventure film. This movie is gorgeous. Some of the best combined computer and hand animation I've seen in a long time. I also want praise and highly recommend the dub, all the accents are geographically correct and really add to the setting. I also want to go ahead and say it's a great kids' film. Though a little violent in visuals and concepts (all of which is a slap on the wrist compared to Otomo's more well known work) it's still simple enough to easily resonate with children. While it's not an masterpiece, it's a good film.
