8 Good Things About this Film

  1. Fun. Entertaining. Enjoyable.
  2. It had a real summer time feel, though it's no longer summer time. Therefore I wished it had been released in summer, forcing a crappy film to be released here in its place. Fitting.
  3. The child (Dakota Goyo) stood on his own against Wolverine (Hugh Jackman).
  4. The fights were great and as entertaining as a fight should be.
  5. Great C.G.I. work with the robots.
  6. Great sound. The hits were felt. I felt a child. I can imagine how much fun it would be to remote control these awesome bots.
  7. The connection between Max and Adam is good. Great shadow (ha, ha) of what he really wants.
  8. The same kind of progression one would expect from a father-son film, but Real Steel had its own flare, its own creativity, and its own greatness to display.

1 Bad Thing About this Film

  1. Uhm....I guess the bad thing is that it had slow parts.

Real Steal is a good film that I'd see again, upon it being released on DVD. It's not one of my favorites of the year, but it's a small surprise. It was better than I had anticipated. If you have sons, this will connect with them. It's worth spending money to see, if you need help picking one. Real Steal is real fun.
