I like this movie.
I like the son more than the father.
I also like Atom, even though it is a robot and it can not speak.
No bad character in this movie so the whole movie I no need to worry about that the good guys will get hurt. But someone said that is the weak side of the movie at the same time.
I like Huge Jackman but I do not think he performs very well in the movie as a father. I like the son because he dances well and he performs better than my expectation.
“A gritty, white-knuckle, action ride set in the near-future where the sport of boxing has gone high-tech, Real Steel stars Hugh Jackman as Charlie Kenton, a washed-up fighter who lost his chance at a title when 2000-pound, 8-foot-tall steel robots took over the ring. Now nothing but a small-time promoter, Charlie earns just enough money piecing together low-end bots from scrap metal to get from one underground boxing venue to the next. 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 brutal, no-holds-barred arena are raised, Charlie and Max, against all odds, get one last shot at a comeback. — (C) Dreamworks”
I can not clearly tell what the movie or the director plans to tell the audience. The son and the father finally understand the other and the families are families or we have to believe in something and keep moving on or Robots will mean something in the future or others? In my opinion, I think the movie tells us that we do feel lonely sometimes and can not find a person who can listen to or understand well, but that is OK, everything will get better as long as you believe yourself. No matter the dream seems very stupid at the beginning. Can not tell the result if do not try at first. Real Steel is a commercial movie but the scenes are great, the robots are lovely and Huge Jackman’s boxing is great, at least to those who do not know boxing very well, like me, and the son dances lovely, too! Those things make this commercial film great.
When Real Steel DVDs or blu-rays are available to order, you may want to buy one and make copies for it, try Any DVD Cloner Platinum, the latest version was just released on 14th January 2012. More output options are added for DVD ripping column, make ripping and copying DVD movies more conveniently.
P.S: By the way, I think the movie means something, which can be seen on the movie poster.
