Average Rating: 3.5 stars out of 5.
Real Steel
Print
Charlie Kenton is 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 to build and train a championship contender.

Feel good sci-fic about a man-child and his son rediscovered each other and teamed up in the robot-fighting circuit. Super special effects on those robotic boxing movements.

"Real Steel"? That's a misnomer. It should've been called "REAL CRAP". Rated P.G. for PURE GARBAGE. The script was lame. Predictable. *SPOILER ALERT*ENTIRE MOVIE IN ONE SENTENCE AHEAD* Flat broke, deadbeat Daddy temporarily takes his estranged, snotty son 'on loan' for $50K, they argue over a junky robot, and finally fall in love! SURPRISE!! *sniff sniff boo hoo* Bossy, smart mouthed 11 year old Max wearing his little 'wife beater' t-shirt, who "DOESN'T LIKE HAMBURGERS!", and swills down Dr. Peppers like Budweisers (good example Dad!) deserved a good swift dropkick from his robot. One half star for the fighting robots. Horrible, horrible movie.

I thought it was pretty good, I watched it with my 13 yeard old daughter and she loved it as well. It took me back when Rocky Balboa was fighting the Russian guy, I think his name is Drago. I thought the old robot was going to win. I recommend this movie.
