"Real Steel" is a good movie that is better than "The Transformers:Dark of the Moon.' I mean it. I though the film was more entertaining than the Transformers movie that came out months ago. The film takes place in the near future where robot fighting is the norm of this country. Hugh Jackman plays a washed up boxer who with help from his son came upon a robot fighter name Atom and made him into a popular hero. Atom fight his way to the top when he faces Zeus. I lie this movie because the film has borrowed stuff from past boxing movies. 1) In "Rocky," the title character was offer a one chance for glory again Apollo Creed. In "Real Steel," that robot nwas offer the same thing. 2) The relationship between father and son came from the 1931 film "The Champ." Also the 1979 version of the movie. Overall, Watching these robots fight is wroth the admission price.

This is a great movie. In the beginning, the father, (Hugh Jackman) is a real jerk. Selfish, single minded, and cold, he left his pregnant girlfriend when his only child was born. When he gets a chance to redeem himself, he blows that too (at first). You really want to like him, but it's hard.

The movie is a little slow in the beginning as the plot is set up, but it moves into high gear shortly after. The kid plays his part expertly, and the audience has no problem liking him. You will find yourself caught up in the excitement as the pair start working together to win the fights. The robot fighter they are developing is as much an underdog as they are. Poor guy was made to be a punching bag!

This movie really delivers and I recommend it highly. The computer graphics are excellent, the robots are really there, walking obediently behind their handlers, you really find yourself praying they don't step on anyone's toes! (ouch!) See it at the theater! The bigger the better!
