Steamboy DVD (Sony Pictures Ver.) Review
on 11 November 2013
Before you start reading below i will have to mention this is not so much a review of the film itself as it is the actual release of the movie, its a good film, but this is only a review of the release, read other reviews if you don't care about the release but the movie itself.
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.
