Excerpt: 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.
Excerpt: So lets get this out the way first, PQ and AQ are awesome, so enthusiasts, don't worry, this movie will show off your gear to the max. Now lets get down to the meat and the potatoes of it all, the movie. It's described as Rocky with Robots and I do have to agree with that analogy. It's not the most original movie to come out, the underdog story has been written and re-written a couple of times but the movie does it well.
Excerpt: I didn't think that I’d enjoy Real Steel as I did. I was surprisingly good; a harmless, family-friendly movie that has some heart and fun action sequences that look incredible in High Definition. Many have said that this is Rocky with robots, but I wouldn't really compare Real Steal it to Rocky on a narrative or human scale because Rocky was more emotional and Real Steel is as far from original as it can possibly be.
Excerpt: 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.
Excerpt: 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).
Excerpt: In a near future where human boxing has been replaced by bouts fought by giant mechanical robots, an ex-fighter and deadbeat dad bonds with his estranged son while taking a scrapyard reject to the championship. Rocky gets robotic in this borderline sci fi that takes the familiar sporting underdog formula and adds some excellent merchandising opportunities.
Summary: 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...
Excerpt: This movie is basically rocky with robots. The last fight and story is the same as rocky in too many ways almost ithe same, also its one of the most corniest movies i have seen in a long time. many times i wanted to reach for the sick bucket. saying that kids will like it. and it was well made. The story is very simple jackman is a selfish guy who fights robots on remote control for cash but is down on his luck and owes money.
