Real Steel Movie Review: A Cheer in Your Seat Flick

The surprise of 2011, in terms of movie expectations versus what we experience in the theater, has to be Real Steel. Hugh Jackman is at his best as a former boxer with one more shot at the title. The film is a triumph of the spirit and will leave you cheering in your seat!

I went to this movie with apprehension and at first wondered if I had come into the wrong movie until I saw Hugh Jackman at the wheel of his truck. I was expecting it to be far into the future but soon found it was in a time similar to ours, the not to distant future. It's a relatable world with characters not much different to us. Real Steel was a pleasant surprise and had a Disney flavour, it's really worth seeing. It has a great story line, interesting characters and great robot fighting scenes. They were well-done and the Robots look so real and you would hardly tell that it was all done by computer simulation.
This movie is a heart felt father son story between and ex boxer Hugh Jackman and his son Dakota Goyo. I wouldn't be surprised is there is a sequel and I'd definetly go alone and see it.
