Movie Spotlight: Steamboy
I finally got the chance to watch this movie, I’ve been wanting to see it for a few years now. The film takes place in the late 1800’s during the Industrial Revolution when technology was coming into play. It’s interesting to see an anime film in this era as it’s a rare sight to see. The story focuses on a young boy who is told to keep safe in his possession a steamball of sorts, which has a lot of energy in it. He finds out that there is two sides to who wants this steamball.
What he uncovers is a disturbing sight and perhaps a sad but truthful look into politics. Filled with memorable scenes and enough action to keep you wondering what happens next, this film really shines because the voices (mainly of British accent) create a unique tone for the film that you won’t forget. Definitely check it out if you can!
