A gritty, white-knuckle, action ride set in the near-future where the sport of boxing has gone hi-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 Goya) 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.

This is a story about how people make a difference. It is intriguing and has a very good story line. It makes you think but also has a serious message!
Excellent! The kids loved Real Steel, it's now their favourite!
Fantastic film would watch it over and over again.
Real Steel is an awesome film, I'm sure any age group would love it. There's funny bits and there's action which is the perfect combination for me.
Real Steel's story starts like the guy is really selfish but I really enjoyed it especially heart warming very good family film.
Despite the addition of boxing robots, the father-son bonding story at the heart of this film, is nothing we haven't seen before... and despite the best efforts of all involved, several of the "emotional" scenes border on being dreary. Luckily, these scenes are surrounded by others. Ones with robots knocking lumps out of each other; usually involving Atom, the discarded sparring robot who is found by Jackman and his son. From here, it's Rocky, (but with robots) as Atom gets a shot at the title against the fearsome Zeus. It won't make your top ten list, but by the time of the final showdown, you'll still be cheering for Atom to achieve his dreams. I recommend this film, if you're not picky about production or story-lines.
This is well worth watching! I absolutely love the ending, and it's hard to find bits that aren't funny. I highly recommend it.
