I couldn't believe how much I was into the movie because I was only expecting a live action Rock Em Sock Em Robots flick.I was loving every minute & way into it up until the part where the kid started dancing with the robot on his way to the ring.In my opinion, It was just way to corny & overdone.If they could've left it out then the movie would've been perfect.It just spoiled it for me & If you can get past it like I couldn't then I think you'll really enjoy Real Steel.Like alot of reviews I read, Kids will enjoy this movie most of all

Every actor does one, a bad movie. Which in my opinion is basically like a hot guy or girl have sex with somebody because of the way the look, it's called pitty sex. Real Steel was Hugh Jackman's pitty sex the story was good, oh no wait that was the game, u know it want it is remember rock-em sock-em robots ya that this movie its not good. The only thing I liked was evanginlene Lilly from lost, that acting wasn't bad. It's didn't make up for anything else self.

I'll admit, when I saw the trailer to this film, it looked like a cheesy Rock-em Sock-em Robots rip-off. Instead, it's a gritty and triumphant coming of age story, set against a futuristic boxing league. Of course, the film doesn't deviate much from the standard sports movie moments, but the futuristic setting is a unique change and, like so many films it emulates, it still manages to tug on the heartstrings at the right moments. Plus that robotic dance entry was so awesome.

Corny and a complete Rocky rip off

Hugh Jackman should be embarrassed that he degraded himself by starring in this shameless robot rip off of Rocky. It is almost a complete carbon copy of Rocky and it is beyond stupid, especially in the scenes were the kid dances with his robot. The fact that robots are fighting instead of people takes away any sense of danger or drama, and lowers the fight scenes down to complete video game level. There is also an abundance of really bad music, and a complete lack of explanation for why these robot fights are occurring. The movie plays like a total kiddie movie, until out of the blue there is a savage "Goodfellas" type beating of the main character and his kid, which is almost completely out of place. I am being very generous by giving this knucklehead movie two stars. A solid perf...

Robot With Heart

I know this is basically Rocky with Robots. But hey wasn't Rocky good so how much of a knock is that really? I mean sure it is no Rocky in the end but it sure is a fun ride. They did a great job of making you care about Charlie, his son Max and their little engin that could fighting robot Atom. You know the drill we have seen it a hundred times in sports movies. Underdog claws his way to the top and gets to stand toe to toe with the unbeatable champion. Where this movie really excelled was making me care about the characters and wanting to see the underdog win. In the end was it corny, yes, was it cheesy, yes, but was it fun, heck yes. If you are looking for a little corny, cheesy, fun action this is a good movie to watch by your self or with you family.

Real Steel review

A former boxer Charlie Kenton (Hugh Jackman) is an insensitive character who enjoys betting his robots though he never pays his dues. He then sees his son Max (Dakota Goyo) and becomes close with him after discovering a robert. Despite its flaws, an overdone formula and its sometimes dull dramatic scenes, it still however entertains. One can see the transformation of Charlie, the attention needed by a child in Max, and the support given by Bailey (Evangeline Lilly). Had some nice quotes from Charlie "Crazy how everything changes." Baily - "Something is better than nothing." and Maz - "Get up!...Hang on!." Real Steel is an endearing film not only of robots slugging it out, but the importance of righting wrongs, fatherhood and integrity when it comes to deals.
