Just finished watching this monster... What a piece of work!!! I can't believe you can actually put almost ten years into the making of an animated movie. That's crazy. The results are there though, at least visually. Otomo's trying hard to have an Akira remake, though. The trappings of success! One can easily be lurred into repeating whatever worked on previous projects. It's very hard to create a truly original piece.

Have any of you seen this movie? What did you think of it?

Ten years? Is it really that big of a movie?! I guess this is a must see. Now if only I could find it at blockbuster...

I liked Akira better, Steamboy's story was a bit lacking, but I got to see it in theaters, so it was fun.

I only zoomed through it, but it did bring me interest for the movie itself! I was thinking of checking it out, so thanks for the convincing comments~

I finally saw Steamboy on TV a few months ago; it was visually gorgeous. The story was decent but it didn't really make it an 'all-time favourite' for me, however one thing I really loved was seeing the Crystal Palace at the Great Exhibition brought to life. That was a real building marvel from the time that was very famous, but it burnt down before I was born and it's ruins (basically it's foundations) are not too far from where I live in England. So seeing it brought to life in gorgeous animation and walking on it's ruins is really surreal. I really respect them for taking an accurate but not necessarily widely known historical reference like that and making it an integral part of the film; in general I feel like they were really going for authenticity, and that's wonderful ^_^
