    Ciencia ficción popular y populista que sin embargo entretiene montones gracias a su buen ritmo y a la corriente emocional que acompaña a la trama.

    I liked this a LOT more the second time around; I was way more forgiving of the opening scenes.

    Cheese and all, this is a super fun sports film with awesome special effects. And as per usual, Hugh Jackman gives it his all.

    Brilliantly executed sports movie with extra cheese and a side order of robots. I really enjoyed of this movie and every last tear that it sucked out of my sentimental old man head.

    A cynical world needs a movie like this. Like a well written pop song- derivative, lightweight but undeniably catchy.

    When I first saw Real Steel I had little to no expectation that it would be anything other than mediocre to average, no where near insultingly bad but definitely a "watch once and forget about immediately after" family film. The fact that I have returned to watch it again gives the game away about what I actually found Real Steel to be. A smart, touching, well acted, fun and inspirational film that appeals to both my inner child and sentimental grown up.

    The bot fighting and Baymax training sequence from Big Hero 6 both reminded me of this film, and so we decided to watch it with our kids for the first time (girls, age 6 and 8).

    Whilst they said it was boring to start with (especially the youngest - who I think proclaimed "worst film ever" at one point), they were both absolutely loving it by the end. Also, they demanded a break to go and play in the middle,…

    A really good film. Robots smashing each other apart, and a nice little story to boot. Hugh Jackman's character was pretty awesome and it was nice to watch this film again in full. Definitely check it out.

    This Richard Matheson adaptation plays out like another sequel to Rocky.

    Its basically Rocky VII: Rocky 'Em Sock ' Em Robots.

    It's like Rocky, only with robots.

    There was a good film in there somewhere but it lost the fight to get out.

    Hay en esta película un subtexto acerca de los videojuegos como tema y el paso de generación de una vertiente lúdica a otra, y es un ángulo interesante aunque es posible que me lo esté inventando. Lo que sí es cierto es que me pareció sorprendentemente entretenida, y aunque no tiene ninguna sorpresa o giro narrativo en su argumento, el carisma de Hugh Jackman es innegable, el niño protagonista no da vergüenza ajena, y las peleas de robots son espectaculares, mucho mejor rodadas y con más personalidad que cualquier entrega de "Transformers". Esta versión robótica de "Rocky" me gustó sin duda.
