#123movies #fmovies #putlocker #gomovies #solarmovie #soap2day Watch Full Movie Online Free – In the near future when people become uninterested in boxing and similar sports, a new sport is created – Robot boxing wherein robots battle each other while being controlled by someone. Charlie Kenton, a former boxer who’s trying to make it in the new sport, not only doesn’t do well, he is very deeply in the red. When he learns that his ex, mother of his son Max, dies, he goes to figure out what to do with him. His ex’s sister wants to take him in but Charlie has first say in the matter. Charlie asks her husband for money so he can buy a new Robot in exchange for turning Max over to them. He takes Max for the summer. And Max improves his control of his robot. But when the robot is destroyed, they go to a scrap yard to get parts. Max finds an old generation robot named Atom and restores him. Max wants Atom to fight but Charlie tells him he won’t last a round. However, Atom wins. And it isn’t long before Atom is getting major bouts. Max gets Charlie to teach Atom how to fight, and the father and son bond strenghtens.
Plot: Charlie Kenton is a washed-up fighter who retired from the ring when robots took over the sport. After his robot is trashed, he reluctantly teams up with his estranged son to rebuild and train an unlikely contender.

I wonder if this was originally written to be a Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em Robots movie, but when they couldn’t get the rights they just decided to make it anyway. In either case, it’s not very good. Amazing that you could take a movie about anthropomorphic **robots** and manage to still make it into a cliche sports film.
_Final rating:★½: – Boring/disappointing. Avoid where possible._
No splitting this Atom, it has got a rock solid heart.
Real Steel is directed by Shawn Levy and collectively adapted to the screen by John Gatins, Dan Gilroy and Jeremy Leven from a Richard Matheson short story called Steel. It stars Hugh Jackman, Dakota Goyo, Evangeline Lilly, Anthony Mackie, Kevin Durand, Hope Davis and James Rebhorn. Music is scored by Danny Elfman and cinematography by Mauro Fiore.
Set in the near future, robot boxing is a big crowd pulling sport. After a struggling robot operator is introduced to an 11-year-old son he has never known, they stumble upon a discarded robot at a junk yard….
We can all moan about the mimicry of an idea and the clichés that dominate Real Steel, but you really got to hand it to the makers for what they have achieved. They have crafted a family film that’s very much perfect in this day and age. The story is one that any adult Sylvester Stallone fan can acknowledge and appreciate, the human heartbeat pleasingly steady, while the premise of big colourful robots beating the crap out of each other delights youngsters and us adults who are still young at heart. Film pretty much does what any other film of this type does, lays on the syrup in the last quarter where second chances and family strife come thundering through the plotting. Undeniably it’s hugely derivative, events are joystick operated to get an emotional response from a family audience, while product placement reins and the script often sags under the weight of unoriginality. But it does uplift the spirit and getting to the end is easy since it’s so much berserker fun. Yes it’s the robot Atom, the people’s champion, yes it’s David vS Goliath and yes! It’s Balboa vS Creed. Nothing wrong with that really.
The cast don’t really have to offer up much beyond being adequate within the context of the material, though a muscular Jackman finds good paternal chemistry with young Goyo. In fact Goyo is pleasingly not annoying, always a bonus is that. Inevitably the robots are the stars, they’re a triumph of design and visual effects and a sight for sore eyes, while Levy has a good handle on staging the fight sequences – even when cribbing from Balboa. The near future look is terrific as well, with Fiore’s colour photography very appealing. Coining in over $290 million at the worldwide box office (over £180 million in profit), Real Steel found the family audience it was looking for, proving once again that there is a market for simple and effective popcorn carnage. It’s not high art or intelligently scripted, but was anyone seriously thinking that was going to be the case here? If you want brains with this premise then seek out Twilight Zone episode “Steel”, starring the excellent Lee Marvin, otherwise just sit back and enjoy the ride and let the botty bots and human interest raise the pulse and gladden the heart respectively. 7/10
Home format release is a sparkling print, extras are annoyingly short but the blooper reel is fun, we get a stunt deconstruction, and we learn about the influence a certain Mr. Spielberg had on the production.
The Heart Of Steel
Based on what everybody said, Real Steal is like Over The Top plus Rocky with Robots. Over The Top because there’s a man, his son, and a truck. Rocky because it’s obvious. Put these films together and add robots and minus Stallone. Real Steel is not very innovating though but it’s excitingly great and has plenty of heart. It’s also the return of Hugh Jackman although we just saw him a little last June. There are lot of things to recommend in Real Steel.
The premise isn’t really that intriguing. It’s boxing replaced by robots. Films with Giant CGI Robots are not innovating since we have Michael Bay’s Transformers. But the heart and soul lies to the relationship of Charlie and Max and their robot, Atom. It’s fun to watch them. The fighting scenes are pretty exciting. That is what most underdog fighting movies do. The only problem here is the weak major antagonist. It’s not really that threatening or a big deal. Ricky was more threatening than the gigantic Zeus.
The filmmaking is pretty decent. Well shot scenes. The CGI robots and the music score are good enough. Nothing to say about the production design except Charlie’s truck. It looks fascinating for some reason. The performances were great. We don’t see Hugh Jackman in action movies after two years and there’s a small cameo of him, flipping off two characters(it’s obvious but I won’t tell you the title). Here in Real Steel, Jackman is energetic and somewhat perfect for the role. Dakota Goyo is a bit charming. Chemistry of him and Jackman shines through the film. It’s fun to watch them together.
There aren’t much new here in Real Steel but in the end, it’s enjoyable and has plenty of heart. The climax isn’t so much overwhelming but it intends to be more heartfelt. Again, it’s like Over The Top which the father is trying to make his son proud and Rocky because it’s boxing and add some robots in it. Even without thinking much about the robots, there is always human heart in this film. Hugh Jackman does it again. The underdog fighting movie genre does it again. It’s really a fun film for the whole family.
A fantastic film filled with unexpected heart
I love the premise of the robot boxing in this film so I was excited to see it but I did not realise how emotional and fantastic this movie is. This movie sees robot boxing as the new top sport and a father, son and broken down robot go for the title. Now Hugh Jackman is one of the best actors in Hollywood today and he absolutely owns this role. He starts off as an arrogant character but due to the great writing and the great performance you end up liking his character and rooting for him. Now I wasn’t sure about the kid when the film started but he really grew on me as the film progressed and his relationship with Jackman was what really drove the film forward. Evangeline lilly plays jackmans love interest and she is a really great addition to this film and delivers a pretty memorable character. Kevin Durand and Anthony Mackie have slightly smaller roles but they both do good performances for their roles. The films story is a little cliché but it does it so well that you really don’t care. The father son relationship is done fantastically, the romance is done well and the underdog story really works. The script is mostly good with some really great emotional stuff in it. But sometimes the dialogue becomes a bit wooden and hard to relate to. The style is awesome, all the robot fight scenes really work and build up to this big fight feel and it is great. Overall this was a surprisingly great movie that you should definitely see.
