Reviews
ReviewSource San Francisco Chronicle
Review [Steamboy] The real pleasure of this movie, which has many, is the last 40 minutes, when the villain's plan is unleashed and young Ray must save London. It is the most ambitious stretch of any animated film I have ever seen, action-packed and tightly edited, with imaginative conceptions based on the mechanical contraptions of the period. Steamboy is a fine example of how anime uniquely contributes to world cinema.

Review [Steamboy] Steamboy is a noisy, eventful and unsuccessful venture into Victorian-era science fiction, animated by a modern Japanese master. It's like H. G. Wells and Jules Verne meet Akira.

Review [Steamboy] ...it rings slightly hollow at the core, thanks to the bizarre plot, which has two thoroughly mad scientists and multiple hangers-on delivering heartfelt rants about the purpose and meaning of science, then endangering the lives of countless people to enforce their will.

Jay Carr, AM New York [Steamboy] An instant classic.
Robert Bricken, Anime Insider [Steamboy] A worthy successor to Akira. . . Only Otomo is capable of pulling off a masterpiece like Steamboy.
