Real Steel (2011)
Movie Review by The Gravedigger
07.23.12

Real Steel (2011) In the near future boxing is made illegal for humans--so they use human-like robots instead. Charlie Kenton (Hugh Jackman of THE PRESTIGE) is a former boxer turned promoter who owes people a lot of money from gambling. And he gets stuck with a son he never knew he had when the kid's mother dies. So what does he do? He takes the boy on a tour with him after they find a new fighting robot in a junkyard--and it turns out the kid is talented at controlling the robot. There's also the robot mechanic, Bailey Tallet (Evangeline Lilly of LOST), the father has an interest in.

This is one of those movies about the future that seems like a good idea at first, like SURROGATES--but after watching for fifteen minutes it makes no sense that an entire society would instigate the premise (of banning human fighting). Still, REAL STEEL is entertaining, has excellent special effects, and doesn't require much thought. It's ROCKY combined with the "Knock-em-Sock-em" Robots.
