    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.

    Basically Steamboy is a film FULL of stupid plot points, annoying characters but bumped up due to the fact that the film Looks and feels visually spectacular also the Dub is pretty great.

    6/10, better then average
