It would appear that as time goes by Katsuhiro Otomo
hasn't gotten any less pompous
or any more comprehensible
I could do a synopsis but I'm not sure there's any point. In the meantime I'll simply refer you to the wikipedia page
. Ditto for an overview of the characters.
At this stage I'm almost expecting Revolutionary Girl Utena
to make more sense when I get to it.
When the palette isn't so dark as to obscure all details there are some very
nice visuals in Steamboy
, as well as some fairly cool action sequences.
But other than that there really isn't a lot going for Steamboy
The soundtrack? Well it has one that doesn't intrude on the action, but certainly wasn't good enough to get my attention.
In a comment on a locked post angriest
once described Steamboy
"as the gloriously pretty movie where you have to sit and watch something explode for over an hour..."
It's a great line, and all too accurate.
