The Chemistry between Hugh Jackman’s character (Charlie) and his estranged son Max (Dakota Goyo) is great. The Bonding progression between father and son as the work together in getting a 2000 pound 8 foot boxing robot named Atom is fun to watch. Hugh Jackman really gets into the roll, it feels like he is working with his son, and Dakota Goyo way good being the adult in the budding relationship. The supporting characters do their job and don’t take away from the story, Evangeline Lilly works well as the close but far love interesting and does a good job in giving Huge Jackman a grounded character.
The special effects are good and the Robot boxing works well. Its not transformers, but the special effects work and work well. You get into and will believe the giant robots do exist. But there are times were the effects look a little shabby. thus it’s not transformers but still works.

Synopsis: 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.
