....If Sylvester Stallone Wrote A Movie About Robots...(Cue
I knew going into the film “Real Steel” that I was in for something not entirely special and yet I hoped for the best. I mean once you’ve seen the trailer, you already know where everything is headed, and let’s be honest here, the film does feel that it had been inspired by those little toy robots that you mash buttons to get them to do some boxing. I mean, it also comes complete with a boxing ring and the robots in “Real Steel” even have that inspired look. Well, …

'Real Steel' 'Two Jews On Film' Have A Split Decision Over This Family Action Flick (Video)
By Joan Alperin Schwartz      The year is 2020. Things look pretty much the same as they do now...Except in the world of boxing. Humans have evolved to the point where they no longer get excited by watching men and women pummel each other. Score one for us.      What we have instead is 'Robot Boxing' which I have to say is...really, really cool...especially the way it's depicted in this new fantasy, action film, called 'Real Steel' directed …

Boxing movies have been a staple of Hollywood for decades. Some of the earliest celluloid offerings documented pugilistic bouts in films such as Raging Bull, The Fighter, and the iconic Rocky series and helped boxing cement itself in both popular and cinematic culture. In the film “Real Steel”, Hugh Jackman plays Charlie Kenton, a down-on-his-luck promoter whose best days are definitely behind him. In the near-future setting of the film, robots have replaced humans in the boxing ring …

Star Rating:         In Shawn Levy’s Real Steel, hulking robots fight each other in back-alleys and sports arenas as frothing crowds cheer them on. This blending of science fiction and fantasy, coupled with the adrenaline rush from the sheer spectacle of brawling metal behemoths, automatically makes the robots more interesting than the human characters. I honestly don’t know if this flaw can be attributed to the underlying concept, which I think is in the …

Most of the rating is because of Hugh's and Dakota's performances as an estranged father and son forming a bond while bring an underdog fighting robot from underground fighting to the big time. Yes, there are a lot of similarities to Rocky, but I do believe this film does not rely on the underdog-does-good theme. I also was blown away with the special effects and CG work that looked so real.

James and I watched Real Steel on Blu-ray last night and I am happy to say that surpassed my expectations! I am a Hugh Jackman fan (I mean, who isn't?) and I was intrigued by the idea of watching robots box. I was hooked after the first ten or fifteen minutes and gave the movie my undivided attention. The actors and directors did an amazing job with this film. My favorite part was when the kid was teaching the robot to dance. My husband looked at me and said "if we ever get a robot, that's the first …

OK, I pirated it off the net. Just passed half way thru I started scanning forward through the flick. I have deleted it from my computer. I had completely forgotten it until looking down this list. Hopefully it won't be long until I forget it again. Not even as good as Cowboys and Aliens.
Quick Tip by . October 08, 2011
Hugh shows he can be a leading man playing someone who is not heroic. The acting takes center stage over the incredible special effects. Shaw Levy did a great job balancing the complex and eye catching effects with the heartfelt story line. All of the principles did well. My only complaint is that there was a bit too much reliance on the smart, cute kid story line. On the other hand Shawn (and Hugh) took a lot of time to bring out the best performance out of Dakota Goyo playing Max, the son of Hugh's …
