Any movie that gets the audience involved in a positive way and leaving cheering is an excellent movie. It is like Rocky on adrenaline and with a whole lot better acting. Hugh Jackman, Evangeline Lilly and Dakota Goyo all have great performances. Dakota who plays the son really makes the movie, but all the actors performances are great. The guy who thought it boring... well, you lack passion and your soul must be dead. Real Steel is the absolutely hands down best movie I have seen in a long time. You will cheer, cry, laugh and be thoroughly entertained. I had to sit and watched the credits at <more>

Real Steel has got...Real Steel indeed! (by sanddragon939)
When I think Hugh Jackman...I think Wolverine, with adamantium claws ripping through stuff and occasionally through the bad guys themselves! and his hair literally wild and feral-looking. But this movie has given Jackman a whole new image...as the deadbeat dad and cocky ex-boxer who participates in gladiatorial robot fights for a living!I won't go too much into the nitty-gritty's of the plot...but all I'd like to say is that this movie is ultimately a story about the triumph of the average down-on-his-luck 'everyman' against overwhelming odds. It's a story we've <more>
seen done a million times...but never against so creative and pulse-ponding a backdrop!And while Hugh Jackman does a great job...the real star of the show is undoubtedly his character's son played by Dakoto Goyo ...the kid comes off as annoying at first but he eventually grows on you!It may not be Oscar material, but this sure is one great movie, and at the end of the day, that's all that matters!
Great movie, good story. Who doesn't like fighting robots?? (by gremlins-haunt-my-house)
We saw an advanced screening on Sept 22. I thought it was going to be another one of those cheesy, campy, not really believable, warm fuzzy, type of underdog/rags to riches movies. I was actually surprised. It had some great plot twists, it had a real story line. And while yes, there is some language sprinkled throughout, it did make a good family movie for older kids, 10+ my opinion . The ending wasn't quite what I was expecting, but looking back I think I liked it better for that. Who wants an ending they can see coming the entire movie?It had some great comedy moments. The <more>
relationships between the actors felt genuine and not overdone or forced. The robot animatronics was good. The robots themselves were fun and imaginative and definitely made me wish we really had this sport. I would so be there!
Great Movie. Perfect Match of emotions, Robo-fight very Importantly not over done and some comic scenes. (by avinashbhan)
I had been waiting to see this movie for a long time, saw it today and it was worth all the wait.The move has a perfect blend of emotions, Robo-fight very Importantly not over done and some comic scenes, what else do you want? For me the robot fighting was great. Have been following Huge Jackman's movies off late and all have them have been good including this one. But apart from all of that the movie has an embedded message that there are things that sometimes you can not handle or overlook when you have other priorities but you can always make things right, it may be hard but it can be <more>
done.The kid Dakota Goyo did a good job as well.So I would say go out there and see the movie, worth every penny that you will spend for the ticket.
"Real Steel" is awesome. I did not expect this going in. It is more than just "Transformers" meets "Rocky" doing "rock-um sock-um robots". I saw Hugh Jackman on Jimmy Fallon talk about what made him enroll in the project. "Real Steel" beyond the visually astounding CGI glitz and spectacle is the touching story of father and son defining love and respect. Again, not all that surprising given Steven Spielberg is Executive Producer. I'm a fan of Jackman. "Real Steel" may be his crossover hit that leverages his amazing gifts, playing <more>
a real guy, and not a superhero. He is awesome, as well. As Jackman describes "Real Steel" is about second chances, and redemption. Sure the story's climax pits underdog undersized fighting robot Atom against the ferocious indestructible Zeus. For me, "Real Steel" resonates in its human voice. Hugh Jackman as Charlie confesses to his son Max scene stealing Dakota Goyo , "You deserve betterÂ… than me." Charlie asks Max, what he wants from him. Max answers, "I want you to fight for me!" Yes, "Real Steel" is fighting for love with everything you have. "Real Steel" is the real deal.Set in the near future, 2020, human boxing is now obsolete. Robot boxing is the reigning form of entertainment that gives audiences the brutal carnage without damage to human life. Jackman is Charlie Kenton, former boxer now manager of second rate robot boxers. As "Real Steel" opens we witness his robot Ambush being demolished at amusement event at a county rodeo. The promoter Ricky arrogant and sleazy Kevin Durand knows Charlie from his boxing days. It turns out that Charlie owes some bad people a lot of money. Charlie returns home to his love Bailey beautiful and radiant Evangeline Lilly with Ambush in tow. Bailey confirms that Ambush is a complete loss and reminds Charlie that he has no money. Bailey owns her father's boxing gym in the city, and her father managed and trained Charlie when he was a contender. Bailey can't support Charlie and keep the gym afloat.Charlie gets word that his old girlfriend died, and he now has custody of their son Max Goyo . Irresponsible Charlie pretty much abandoned Max and his Mom when he was born. Max is 11 years old. Max's Aunt Debra unforgiving and taut Hope Davis wants full custody of Max. At a court hearing in Texas, loutish Charlie expresses no interest in being a father. Instead he brokers a deal with Debra's wealthy husband Marvin decent James Rebhorn to sign custody away for $100,000. Charlie needs the money to buy state of the art champion robot, Noisy Boy. The catch: Debra and Marvin are vacationing in Italy for 2 months. So Charlie gets to forge a relationship with Max, or not. Really for Charlie this means having Bailey look after Max. Goyo is natural as the smart cool gamer kid, who is a fan of robot boxing and street dancing. Seems he also inherits his Dad's stubbornness. He also insists on calling Jackman, "Charlie". Max knows he is being played at least initially.Evangeline Lilly is beautifully understated and generative as Bailey. Too bad she isn't given more to do, as well. She immediately is drawn to care for Max, because he is like Charlie, but void of his painful disappointments. In a wonderful scene she tells Max about the man Charlie was as a boxer. Although, he was 25 and 19, unfortunately all by knockout, he battled toe-to-toe with the number 2 contender in the world. Her Bailey loves Charlie so much, and is waiting for him to step into the great man he can be. Jackman shades Charlie as a powerful man, who lives life fully, leaving nothing behind. Of course the glaring paradox is his relationship with Max. Screen and story writers John Gatins, Dan Gilroy, and Jeremy Leven strike the right tone with their "Real Steel", they know it's the people that inspire, not the stunning special effects. Director Levy touchingly focuses his narrative as well.Charlie's "Noisy Boy" is torn to shreds in an underground cage match. While searching for repair parts in the junkyard, Max uncovers another robot, Atom. Atom is a second generation sparring bot, as Charlie points out to Max. So Atom is built to take punishment, not inflict it. Unfazed Max is determined to fight Atom in matches. Using his hacker skills Max merges Noisy Boy's voice command feature with Atom's Shadow Functionâ€”Atom can flawlessly imitate every movement he sees. Charlie trains Atom giving the robot the punching combinations and instincts of a human boxer. Charlie and Max leverage this advantage over other fighting bots, and soon find themselves fighting in the WRB, World Robot Boxing. The reigning WRB Champion is Zeus, technological marvel designed by creator Tak Mashido elegantly arrogant Karl Yune . Zeus is programmed with artificial intelligence that learns from his opponents and evolves. Zeus's owner is the gorgeous and canny Farra Lemkova, well played by Olga Fonda. Human instinct and courage is matched against calculated advanced technology. This is Charlie's last shot at greatness, and his chance to come to terms with his past.In "Real Steel" Sugar Ray Leonard trained Hugh Jackman to box, and was the technical adviser for robot boxing in the ring. Jackman looks quick, strong, and lean. Too bad none of his boxer action sequences made it into the final cut. All this gives "Real Steel" a visceral authenticity. The real deal is Jackman and Goyo's heartfelt chemistry. Yes, that they become father and son is predictable. It's supposed to. Jackman is powerful and compassionate as he believably transforms into the hero. Goyo is wonderful as the innocent kid, who just wants to believe in something. In a poignant scene with both as Charlie fails to protect Max, he whispers, "I'm sorryÂ…" "Real Steel" at times is shamelessly hokey, and I loved it. In the end it is about love, and all that you fight for. "Real Steel" gets it right.
Based on what everybody said, Real Steal is like Over The Top plus Rocky with Robots. Over The Top because there's a man, his son, and a truck. Rocky because it's obvious. Put these films together and add robots and minus Stallone. Real Steel is not very innovating though but it's excitingly great and has plenty of heart. It's also the return of Hugh Jackman although we just saw him a little last June. There are lot of things to recommend in Real Steel.The premise isn't really that intriguing. It's boxing replaced by robots. Films with Giant CGI Robots are not <more>
innovating since we have Michael Bay's Transformers. But the heart and soul lies to the relationship of Charlie and Max and their robot, Atom. It's fun to watch them. The fighting scenes are pretty exciting. That is what most underdog fighting movies do. The only problem here is the weak major antagonist. It's not really that threatening or a big deal. Ricky was more threatening than the gigantic Zeus.The filmmaking is pretty decent. Well shot scenes. The CGI robots and the music score are good enough. Nothing to say about the production design except Charlie's truck. It looks fascinating for some reason. The performances were great. We don't see Hugh Jackman in action movies after two years and there's a small cameo of him, flipping off two characters it's obvious but I won't tell you the title . Here in Real Steel, Jackman is energetic and somewhat perfect for the role. Dakota Goyo is a bit charming. Chemistry of him and Jackman shines through the film. It's fun to watch them together.There aren't much new here in Real Steel but in the end, it's enjoyable and has plenty of heart. The climax isn't so much overwhelming but it intends to be more heartfelt. Again, it's like Over The Top which the father is trying to make his son proud and Rocky because it's boxing and add some robots in it. Even without thinking much about the robots, there is always human heart in this film. Hugh Jackman does it again. The underdog fighting movie genre does it again. It's really a fun film for the whole family.
Feel Good, Fun Movie ! (by quarterwave-271-907469)
I wasn't expecting much when I saw this movie - and I'm not really a fan of movies where kid's are the lead - but, I was pleasantly surprised with this one.Even though this was a "formula / underdog" type of movie, it had me cheering for Atom, Hugh Jackman was great and so were the cast of characters.The CGI was excellent, I really connected to the characters, and it was just a fun, guilty-pleasure c'mon, boxing robots - who DOESN'T want that ! type of movie.Not quite "A Space Odyssey:2000" but then again, it's not supposed to be.FUN. <more>
Great! but disappointing ending... (by harryfox105)
I went to see a preview of this film on 23rd August 2011 and loved it, however at this moment in time there were a few things missing...Despite it starting off reasonably slowly with me wondering where the story was going to go, I actually really enjoyed the whole concept which contained some clever ideas to do with the concept of fighting robots. Hugh Jackman Charlie plays the broke ex pro boxer, now robot fighter and has a great acting role in this film. He has to take on his long lost son Max for two months who is fanatic about robot boxing and takes an interest in his fathers <more>
profession...an number of things happen before Max has his life saved by a mere sparring bot who has some unique features look out for the classic dancing scene involving the shadow bot and Max ... The core of the story is the rise of this underdog robot to taking on the big boss champion in what you could call a sort of karate kid/rocky sci-fi ??? . It makes for a feel good journey that is great for all ages/genders and includes certain twists in relationships mainly between Max and Charlie... I loved it up to the ending which left me slightly empty and lost the film a round of applause when there should have been one in a cleverly left pause before the credits....It is nothing major but it had a good ending when it could have easily had an epic ending, but hey it was just a preview and they may well change it we took a survey and it could be easily re-edited!I loved the film and it would appeal to everyone. It had a great original storyline that has your heart tingling and is a passionate film...You should definitely go and see it in the cinema and it will be worth your money!
