Steamboy (2004) IMDb

Categorization

Steampunk action.

Subject

Three generations from a family of inventors clash on the outskirts of a brief war between Great Britain and an American weapons manufacturer, in 1866. Meanwhile, Robert Stephenson tries to get his hands on a revolutionary new source of steam.

Commentary

A decent populist fruit of the subgenre, but shallow and suffering from a sagging half-hour finale.
