Charlie Kenton unexpectedly gets custody of his estranged son, Max, and they spend the summer finding, building, and training an outdated sparring bot, Atom, to get in the robot boxing game, the only kind of boxing in the future. Charlie's a ton of terrible things (drinker, gambler, charmer…), but he used to be different. He was a great boxer with heart, heart, heart. As he trains Atom, as Max makes a friend for the first time, as the two finally find each other, Jackman reminds us how awesome Redemption can be.
Excellent movie for the whole family. Don't miss it!
One hundred words can't do this movie justice! Gaaarrrrrrrr.
When I saw the previews, I basically turned up my nose. I thought it was Rock 'Em, Sock 'Em Robots, The Movie. I never expected the effects to be stunning, and I certainly didn't dream I'd cry. Yes, you heard right. I cried! At the end of this Cinderella story, I wanted to stand on my seat and cheer out loud, so take your friends, your family, your kids, your date, because everyone can enjoy Real Steel.
Not convinced? Okay, here's the kicker. A robot...does The Robot. Yes! Go! Now!!!!! ;)
