My thoughts… The Skyship Chronicles [Part 1] is a fantastic steampunk adventure! I love this film because its story is driven by a bevy of bad-ass steampunk girls! There’s heroine Molly Madigan (Karleigh Chase), Molly’s sidekick Alex Thompson (Rachel Simone Lappé), villainess Captain (Linda Roser), and Gustav’s many lovely hentchwomen! I can’t wait for Part II!
