Cheesy anime

If Jerry Bruckheimer produced anime this is what it would be like. The animation was visually stunning at times, but this thing is cheesier than the fifteen year old sock I just found under my bed.

You know, I rented it because I just thought it was something I had to see. I am pretty sure there is some deep meaning and undertone to the whole thing, but I never really catch those, and if I do I dont really care. It was a pretty awesome movie, but it was more oriented towards a younger audience, so it had a few things that just bored me. Some of the effects looked like a combination between a... read more

Katsuhiro Ōtomo's follow-up to his landmark feature, Akira.
Some of the tightest integration between CGI & 2-D animation on film.
The detail in this movie is just about about perfect, and it's English language version was treated exceptionally well, so that the dialogue flows alot more smoothly than the translations that are found in most other anime films.

An average movie

“Since I’m a huge fan of ‘Akira’ (the comic-books and the movie), of course, I had to see this flick at some point. Unfortunately, I can’t say it was as awesome as ‘Akira’. I mean, visually, it was really impressive. It is pretty obvious that Otomo took advantage of his huge reputation in Japan and made one hell of an animated feature. Indeed, the hand-drawn animation was quite marvelous with tons of meticulous little details. But, it didn’t stop there, no, no, Otomo has also added some CGI and the combination of both techniques was quite seamless and really impressive. So, on the visual side, I was quite satisfied but, unfortunately, I can’t say that the plot was that good. Indeed, this time, Otomo decided to take the action in 1860’s Britain but, seriously, why?!?

"From the director of Akira and Metropolis comes this under rated little gem, featuring a young engineer who is chased for an item his grandfather discovered. I like how the credits really allude to a whole big story, and how this is really more expansive than it looks."

"VISUAL SPECTACLE! Splendid movie, how can you ever be disappointed with Mr. Otomo and the Studio 4ºC team when they release things such as this? It's impossible... How can people dislike this style of movie is beyond me! I love sci-fi stories in the old european industrial era setting, and this movie freaking delievers at that! Characters, story and everything else was good, but what really steals the show are the production values, a trademark of Studio 4ºC, some of the best in the anime ind"

“Katsuhiro Ōtomo's follow-up to his landmark feature, Akira.

Multiple viewings are required to just capture & appreciate all the beautifully intricate designs.

Plus, one of my favorite things about Steamboy, is the way that, even though the human figures are still drawn in the typical manga style, there's still a strong more western "realism" to the caricature element to their design, that it adds alot more weight to their forms. The end result is that i” read more

It was a pretty awesome movie, but it was more oriented towards a younger audience, so it had a few things that just bored me. Some of the effects looked like a combination between animation and CGI, or the whole movie was done in CGI (Which would mean it was very good CGI). And the effects themselves where amamzing, with lots of action, backstabing, family quarrels, and explosions. The only issue I really had is that some of the machines where not all that amazing. Yeah, this was set in the late 1800s and it was steam powered, but you can come up with something better that w” read more
