More Info:
  • David Sterritt

    Visually stunning animation.

    Christian Science Monitor Full Review
  • Marc Savlov

    If Victorian Manchester had been remotely like this, H.G. Wells never would have bothered to pen "The Time Machine" – he'd have just stepped outside and into the fray.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • J. Hoberman

    Steamboy doesn't have the deep melancholia or the visionary élan of last year's Ghost in the Shell 2: Innocence. Consistent in its graphic invention from first to last, however, it's a sensationally designed piece of work. (The retro stylistics are comparable to Brazil, David Lynch's Dune, and The Iron Giant.)

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Tasha Robinson

    Steamboy adds a touch of innocent wonder to the formula through Ray's eyes, resulting in Otomo's most human film to date, but humanity rarely seems to be among Otomo's priorities. His films seem far more concerned with the spectacle he manages like no one else in animation.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Ella Taylor

    The movie's true genius lies in the exquisite animation, a blend of hand-drawn and state-of-the-art digital technology that suggests an old world being bullied into a new one.

    L.A. Weekly Full Review
  • Richard James Havis

    It's a roller-coaster action film that thunders along with top-notch set pieces and studiously researched period settings. The only letdown is that the focus on action drowns out any character development.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Janet Maslin

    The film turns into a preposterous but engrossing spectacle, fueled by a resource more enduring than steam or its successors: big ideas.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Kevin Crust

    A stunning-to-look-at film marred by a less than searing pace and some narrative incoherence.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Lou Lumenick

    Gorgeously detailed animated adventure.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Aaron Hillis

    Though Steamboy could have been smarter and more dramatically engineered, this razzle-dazzle ride won't disappoint if you just need to blow off a little you-know-what.

    Premiere Full Review
  • Liam Lacey

    The narrative here may be strictly nuts and bolts, but as an achievement in graphic design, Steamboy is first class.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • G. Allen Johnson

    A fine example of how anime uniquely contributes to world cinema.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Ty Burr

    Boys of all ages, by contrast, will be mesmerized by the relentless, breathtakingly visualized action.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • J.R. Jones

    Visually commanding, conceptually beguiling, but dramatically inert.

    Chicago Reader Full Review
  • Owen Gleiberman

    It's nifty to behold, but about the only drama in Steamboy lies in waiting for this colossal hovering machine-monster to blow a gasket.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Sean Axmaker

    It's part Jules Verne arms-race nightmare, part James Bond gadget war and part boy's own adventure.

    Seattle Post-Intelligencer Full Review
  • Greg Bellavia

    Perhaps the key to understanding where Steamboy goes wrong is in understanding why Otomo's previous animated feature "Akira" was such a success.

    Film Threat Full Review
  • Leslie Felperin

    Dry storytelling and boy's-toys mechanics will stop this from being the next "Spirited Away"-style crossover hit.

    Variety Full Review
  • Maitland McDonagh

    The sci-fi wonders, including an army of shuddering robo-soldiers and one-man, steam-powered bombers with delicate wood-and-linen wings, are truly marvelous and go a long way toward making up for the film's erratic pacing.

    TV Guide Magazine Full Review
  • Staff (Not credited)

    Visually arresting, with an enjoyably wacky premise, but scuppered somewhat by its rusty, clunky storytelling.

    Empire Full Review
  • Robert K. Elder

    Though Katsuhiro Otomo's animated Victorian-era adventure Steamboy stars British characters, it's a Japanese film through and through.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Jami Bernard

    The weak story and bland hero are no match for the increasingly exciting visuals, while the score by Steve Jablonsky should be on exhibit in the Hall of Lead.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Roger Ebert

    There may be possibilities here, but they're lost in the extraordinary boredom of a long third act devoted almost entirely to loud, pointless and repetitive action.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Luke Y. Thompson

    Much of Steamboy is actually reminiscent of "Wild Wild West," with a giant moving tower substituting for the giant spider, and the personalities of Will Smith and Kevin Kline being replaced by . . . no personality at all, really.

    Dallas Observer Full Review
  • Michael O'Sullivan

    It's just that, in this world of clanking, hissing machines, even the people seem like robots.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Stephen Hunter

    The movie never transcended its elaborate production work to achieve an independent reality.
