Real Steel is a rags to riches story about robot boxing and stars Hugh Jackman. No, really.
Let’s face it, who else would you find to star in a film with that plot?
Surprisingly, Real Steel isn’t as bad as you might think. Low expectations are pleasantly exceeded and you soon find yourself watching a robotic version of Rocky. Robotky, if you like.
Sure the film is a little cheesy and the robot boxing element aside, the basic plot isn’t very original. But Real Steel is entertaining throughout, the CGI is great and dare I say it, boxing robots almost becomes semi-believable towards the end. Scary.
