Enter the not-so-distant future where boxing has gone high-tech -- 2000-pound, 8-foot tall steel robots have taken over the ring. Starring Hugh Jackman as Charlie Kenton, a washed-up fighter turned small-time promoter, Real Steel is a riveting, white-knuckle action ride that will leave you cheering. When Charlie hits rock bottom, he reluctantly teams up with his estranged son Max (Dakota Goyo) to build and train a championship contender. As the stakes in the thrill-packed arena are raised, Charlie and Max, against all odds, get one last shot at a comeback. Visually stunning and complete with knockout bonus material, Real Steel is a pulse-pounding, inspirational adventure filled with heart and soul.
Editor's Note
A retired pugilist transitions to the business side of the ropes after human boxers are replaced by robotic ones in director Shawn Levy's feature-length adaptation of the TWILIGHT ZONE episode "STEEL." Charlie Kenton (Hugh Jackman) was a true contender when the sport of boxing was changed forever. Now, instead of humans duking it out for the masses, huge, powerful steel robots trade blows in the ring. As a result, former gladiator Charlie has been forced into the role of two-bit promoter, piecing together cut-rate fighting bots from scrap metal as he makes the rounds on the underground boxing circuit. Just when it seems that Charlie has sunken to the nadir of his career, his estranged 11 year old son, Max (Dakota Goyo), offers him the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity at a comeback by constructing and training a true champion. Now the stakes are higher than ever before, and Charlie is about to get a second chance at leaving an indelible mark on the sport he once dedicated his life to.

Expert Review Real Steel - DVD Review
filmcritic.com DVD Reviews
Published on: 1/24/2012 5:02 AM
Real Steel is the cinematic equivalent of a hyper, panting, slobbery dog. It practically mauls the audience in an unabashed plea for undying love. In a souped-up, mad-cap, over-emoted epic kind of way, the film unsteadily teeters on the brink of unmitigated disaster for over two hours of metal-clanging robo-fighting and teary-eyed human melodrama. And yet at times it is so hard to deny this unfortunate little battle brawler of a movie. On the surface, it's a Michael Bay-wannabe. But whereas a genuine Michael Bay film would jam its blunt-force testosterone into our consciousness without much care for audience reaction, Real Steel is just a pathetic, uncoordinated mutt on the inside. I tried my best to show it some sympathy even as it just bounded across the screen like a lumbering robot....read the full review

Professional Reviews

Box Office
3.5 stars out of 5 -- "Underneath the busy, noisy action beats a human heart pumping with the red-blooded emotions that have worked for boxing films since the original CHAMP first grabbed moviegoers in the '30s." 10/03/2011

Entertainment Weekly
"[A] jaunty, well-built hybrid action/family pic....[The movie] demonstrates the way CGI-driven bot cinema can fruitfully coexist with father-and-son bonding cinema to create charming entertainment -- part warm hugs and part cold clang." -- Grade: A- 10/14/2011

Total Film
3 stars out of 5 -- "Jackman's solid, the kid's likeable and the climactic fight is a prizewinner. Only those with a heart of tin could resist." 11/01/2011

Chicago Sun-Times
3 stars out of 4 -- "[T]he movements of the robots are superbly choreographed....It has characters, it matters who they are, it makes sense of its action, it has a compelling plot." 10/05/2011

Los Angeles Times
"Levy, with Sugar Ray Leonard adding some punch to the boxing sequences, makes you actually care about the robots..." 10/07/2011

Movieline
"Jackman is predictably raffish and swaggering..." 10/06/2011

Sight and Sound
"The film is punctuated by mechanical fights which are well directed by director Shawn Levy and certainly amp up the excitement, and Hugh Jackman and Dakota Goyo hit all the right notes..." 12/01/2011
