The story unfolds quickly, and for a low(ish) budget, independently produced film, I was left impressed with how high the standard was set from the scripting to wardrobe. The Victorian costumes are lovely, the paltry use of CGI not one bit detrimental to the visuals. The plot was original, where unexpected developments abounded, and while technically a young adult movie, it was more than mature enough for any age to enjoy. It may not be the absolute best in the genre when compared to other period sci-fi/adventure films, yet this still held its own nicely.
As a bonus, there was no standard Hollywood glorification of filth or depravity here - just a solid movie that provided me with a much needed steampunk fix.
Mariah tries to protect his younger brother who is soon captured by Lunger's henchmen. Charity comes to Mariah's aide and gives him the history of his parents work with Charity as well as the sinister goals of Lunger and how Mariah can best try to find his brother.
I found this to be a good fast paced story that held my full attention. The acting was good although I always seem to like the acting of Sheen, Neill, Headey and Gruffudd, but had not seen Barnard (Mariah) before and found him to be very good as well. Barnard did look a little older than the 17 yr old Mariah he was playing but he did manage to pull it off fairly well. I quite enjoyed seeing Sheen change characters throughout.Read more ›

I found the movie to be entertaining. A decent enough adventure story, taking place in 1885 England. It is not a fast paced movie. Read morePublished 9 days ago by DVD watcher
