From the leader in animé Katsuhiro Otomo (Osamu Tezuka's Metropolis, Memories), comes his first feature- length directorial project since his breakthrough film (Akira). Ten years in the making, witha total budget of $22 million, Steamboy is the most expensive Japanese animé production ever. A retro science-fiction epic set in Victorian England, Steamboy features an inventor prodigy named Ray Steam, who receives a mysterious metal ball containing a new form of energy capable of powering an entire nation, the Steam Ball. Young Ray Steam must use the Steam Ball to fight evil, redeem his family, and save London from destruction. With more than 180,000 drawings and 400 CG cuts, Steamboy is one of the most elaborate animated features ever created. Steamboy will be brought to life with an outstanding ensemble voiceover cast including Anna Paquin (X-Men), Patrick Stewart (X-Men), and Alfred Molina (Spider-man 2).
The first feature Katsuhiro Otomo has written and directed since his watershed Akira (1988), Steamboy offers a fantastic, sepia-toned vision of the past-as-future. In place of the dystopic Neo-Tokyo of Akira, Steamboy is set in England in 1866. Young Ray Steam receives a Steam Ball, a mysterious, powerful device, from his inventor grandfather. Governments and businesses covet the Steam Ball, and Ray finds himself in a murderous conflict over its possession. He's also caught between his father, a 19th century Darth Vader who builds terrible weapons for an American arms merchant, and his grandfather, who believes science should improve people's lives. Otomo uses computer graphics to create dazzling visuals that few recent films--animated or live action--can match: monumental systems of gears and pistons; machines that dwarf the Tower of London; antique weapons of mass destruction. But the dazzling imagery can't disguise the lack of a coherent plot and the flimsiness of the characters. --Charles Solomon, Amazon.com

I am used to buying anime releases published by Manga and MVM Entertainment, this Sony Pictures release does not come with the Japanese voice track, now, thats a problem to me because i like hearing the original voice cast, it may not be a problem for some as the movie is actually set in Victorian age England, the problem is - other anime films by Sony Pictures have been released with the Japanese voice track, in fact i bought a copy of Tekkonkinkreet with this movie and it came with the Japanese voice track, whats up with that?
The English dubbing itself is alright, but it feels sort of cheap to only have one voice track when other releases by the same company have many, 4 stars for the release, but the movie is a 5 star.
Sorry if i sound too nitpicky.
I'll be looking at the Director's Cut in the hope of a Japanese dialogue track. I always find an English dub (I'm English) breaks the spell... and English never syncs properly anyway. Also, it's quite common to find key plot points rescripted for better sync (but poorer sense).
