Item Details

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.

I was surprised at how good this film was. It had good action, but it also had good humor and was touching at moments between a father and son. I would watch it again.
