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

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

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