Real Steel


realsteelIn the near future, when robots have replaced humans in boxing, Charlie Kenton (Hugh Jackman) loses his champ but gets an unexpected new chance at winning fights – thanks to his 11-year-old son (Dakota Goyo). More inspired by than based on Richard Matheson’s sci-fi story, this is a strictly formulaic but skillfully produced movie for family crowds, featuring likable and warm performances by Jackman and young Goyo as their characters slowly begin to function as a team. The robots are effectively designed, and the climactic bout has one cheering for team Kenton as if their man of steel is Rocky Balboa.
