Audience Reviews for Steamboy

    Steamboy is wonderfully animated, a highly imaginative production. While it is true that the feature is a bit thin on plot and characters, this is an action film and the action does not disappoint.

    entertaining japanes animation set in victorian england as a young boy, sees wrong doings during his fathers inventions during the steam age, superb animation, and action packed, a well told story, going to great places, this was the english dubbed version, and some acents were rather off, but dident spoil one bit

    Not at all what I was expecting, but enjoyable none the less. A bit long in my opinion, but lots of cool concepts and visuals.

    I was confused as to whether the lead character was a girl or a boy, overall it was meh.
