movie tuesday: real steel

Tuesday, October 25, 2011


A gritty, white-knuckle, action ride set in the near-future where the sport of boxing has gone high-tech, Real Steel stars Hugh Jackman as Charlie Kenton, a washed-up fighter who lost his chance at a title when 2000-pound, 8-foot-tall steel robots took over the ring. Now nothing but a small-time promoter, Charlie earns just enough money piecing together low-end bots from scrap metal to get from one underground boxing venue to the next. When Charlie hits rock bottom, he reluctantly teams up with his estranged son Max (Dakota Goyo) to build and train a championship contender. As the stakes in the brutal, no-holds-barred arena are raised, Charlie and Max, against all odds, get one last shot at a comeback.

My Review:

we LOVED this movie!  in all honesty the main reason i wanted to go and see this was because of Hugh Jackman.  and i wasn’t disappointed, it was better than i thought it was going to be.

the movie is set in the near future, 2020, when human boxing is obsolete.  the premise isn't really that intriguing. it's boxing replaced by robots. movies with giant CGI robots aren’t anything new since transformers came out. but the heart and soul of this movie lies to the relationship of Charlie and Max and their robot, Atom. it's fun to watch them and even the fighting scenes are pretty exciting.

this movie had a great cast, great story & great action.  it almost made me feel that i am watching a disney film.  you will cheer, cry and laugh through this entertaining film. such a great movie!!  go and watch it!
