STEAMBOY (Theatrical Release Director Cut USA 2005)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.9|5.0 Starsììì

Japanese anime—has a great story. The movie, from its opening scenes, is a little difficult to understand until the main character meets his father and the relationship between father and grandfather becomes clear. At that point the film levels out and tells a very good story. Lots of hard work went into this film and it shows.
