Awesome movie - scenes
I really like this movie but they really need to add the scenes that they cut out. It adds the motive to the movie with out them the movie is pointless. The only upside is that with out the scenes it adds more mystery.
This movie is awsome
It was Great

An extremely enjoyable film from the director of Alkira, but dougom is right, there are scenes missing from the iTunes version. Several, in fact, and I'm not even halfway through it.
The scene near the opening where Ray saves the factory before it blows is an important dramatic moment which makes light of his extraordinary skills and his ability to act on the moment. Without it, we're left with the bullies who make him out to be just an angry kid who swipes parts from trainyards and factories. We've lost something important there. The next scene I noticed missing before I had to stop was a brief segway from the steamcastle to the exhibition hall with Ray and Scarlet. A minor bit in comparison to the factory scene, but still kind of annoying when you know it's missing. Why can't we have the whole movie? And if you did it with this movie, how many more of these iTunes films are likewise trimmed?
An enjoyable, if somewhat lightweight steampunk fable. The film appears to have been "brightened" from it's original release, when it was (deliberately, I've read) pretty murky. But someone has also sliced an entire scene from the beginning of the film--in which young Ray, engaged as child labor (wasn't illegal in those days) risks his life to stop a machine from falling apart. What, can't bruise American's tender sensibilities with historical accuracy? Might as well take the "n-word" out of "Huckleberry Finn". Oh, wait . . .
Not a fan of anime, but...
By the steampunk
I don't consider myself a fan of anime since the 5th grade with pokemon, but this movie was incredibly well done.
