REAL STEEL Review

REAL STEEL Review:

My family and I received REAL STEEL Blu-ray/DVD combo pack in order to review the movie. I was really looking forward to seeing it because my sons both LOVE robots. Oh and because Hugh Jackman stars in it too. Shift+R improves the quality of this image. Shift+A improves the quality of all images on this page.

Seriously, though, I can see why this movie was #1 in the country for two consecutive weeks when it was in theaters. It was beyond great. If a film can leave me feeling like I can relate to any of the characters, I know it will end up being one I will watch over and over again. The relationship we saw develop between father and son was heartwarming. Throughout the entire movie, I found myself looking forward to seeing that happen with my sons and their dad.

Another thing I really enjoyed was the music! Before each fight, Max (portrayed by Dakota Goyo), does a little dance routine with one of the robots. The crowds loved it and even I was moving to the music while they danced on the screen!  It was fun to watch this young man connect with Charlie (Hugh Jackman) via a passion they both share (boxing/robot fighting).

I highly recommend this movie and you will have your chance to own it when it's released on Blu-ray & DVD on January 24th!

In addition to the trailer (shown below), you can view more videos on YouTube.

Film Synopsis:

Balancing gritty action and emotional heart, “Real Steel” is an inspiring and visually stunning film that takes audiences on an action-packed journey. Washed-up boxer Charlie Kenton (Hugh Jackman) scrapes by as a small-time robot-fight promoter as he tries to make a comeback. Against all odds he eventually succeeds—at least in the eyes of his son Max (Dakota Goyo). “Real Steel” is spectacular family entertainment that will have everyone cheering again and again.
