In the near future, robots have taken over for humans in the boxing ring. A former boxer and small-time promoter (Hugh Jackman) struggles to make a living with patched-up robots in shady venues.

If you get one shot, make it real.

More Movie Taglines:
- If you get one shot, make it real.
- Courage is stronger than steel.
- Champions aren't born. They're made.
- Michigan was chosen to film this movie by director Shawn Levy because he was blown away by the Model T Automobile plant in Highland Park near Detroit. He felt it was the perfect set for the first fight scene called Crash Palace in the film. No other location he visited in New Mexico, Los Angeles, or Georgia came close.
The third film of director Shawn Levy to be released in the IMAX format. The other two are Night at the Museum and Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian.
Much of the robot boxing fights were motion-captured using professional boxers, supervised by Sugar Ray Leonard.
In an apparent nod to Rocky, the world champion robot is named "Zeus", while in 'Rocky', the champion is named "Apollo" Creed. In Greek mythology, Apollo is the son of Zeus.
In an obvious nod to the iconic game "Rock'em, Sock'em, Robots", during the Atom/Zeus fight, Mashido assumes manual control of Zeus and grabs two simple joysticks and moves them back and forth operating Zeus exactly as done in the board game. The Generation 1 robot boxer head seen in the junkyard is also from the same game.
