    A totally cheesy underdog throwback movie and I'm a sucker for father and son story.

    I watched this with a bottle of wine because it's a film where Hugh Jackman learns to love his abandoned son by training a robot boxer. Surprisingly it doesn't disappoint; managing to deliver on nearly all fronts. In truth, Real Steel should have been this generation's Karate Kid but for some reason it never really seemed to find its audience... a shame really because it's about as good a "Hugh Jackman learns to love his abandoned son by training a…

    The film is pretty predictable and silly, but with some cool scenes and a good performance from Hugh Jackman, it makes for an enjoyable time.

    Apart from an ill-judged bull fighting sequence at the start, the rest of the film has enough charm and heart to overlook the completely predictable plot and many, many flaws.

    I was going to give it 3.5 stars but then in the last few minutes they slowed the fight, played swelling music and lingered on glances between the boy and the girlfriend looking at the champ boxing with the robot.

    Naff.

    However despite massive plotholes, including but not limited to how this eleven year old is listened to religiously in one breath then overridden easily in others, this is still enjoyable.

    Brainless fun, and quite brainless in places.

    But still…

    This uplifting Disney-distributed creation bears an eerie resemblance to the 1979 Jon Voight father-son bonding classic The Champ with chippy Max replacing teary T.J. and robots taking the punches instead of Billy Flynn. In this version, the boy’s aunt wants custody of the kid instead of a returned mom. Hugh Jackman as Charlie Kenton is best with his mouth shut and fists flying. Eleven-year-old Max Kenton (Dakota Goyo) gets all the adult lines. Evangeline Lilly as gym-owner Bailey Tallet provides…

    Achei um baita filme de luta, uma história até bem parecida com a linha que os filmes do Rocky levavam, mas com robôs brigando em rinques.

    Também com uma boa história familiar de plano de fundo, que dá aquela esperança que a humanidade precisa em filmes do estilo.

    Um ótimo entretenimento.
