8 Good Things About this Film
- Fun. Entertaining. Enjoyable.
- 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.
- The child (Dakota Goyo) stood on his own against Wolverine (Hugh Jackman).
- The fights were great and as entertaining as a fight should be.
- Great C.G.I. work with the robots.
- 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.
- The connection between Max and Adam is good. Great shadow (ha, ha) of what he really wants.
- 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
- 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.
