Steamboy (2004)

Though it didn't quite live up to its spectacular opening sequences, I did rather enjoy this steampunk anime set in an alternate history Victorian England. Unfortunatley the movie suffers from probably the worst English dub in movie history, so I'm going to watch it again subtitled before I review it properly.

Hearing people who are supposed to be from Manchester / London speaking Japanese will seem odd, but not as painful as listening to American (and English) voice actors not only completely failing to nail the accent (which is pretty difficult admittedly), but Anna Paquinn voicing the young boy who's the main character, rarely sounding like a boy, usually like an American girl, never like an Mancurian. Oh well...
