When his project to create weapons that harmlessly neutralize soldiers is sabotaged, he leaves in disgust. When he sees gangs are using his weapons on the street, he uses his brains and his Uncle Joe’s junkyard know-how to fight back, becoming a real man of “steel.”
Plot: Justice. Safe streets. Payback. Metallurgist John Henry Irons (O’Neal) vows to claim them all when a renegade military reject (Judd Nelson) puts new superweapons in dangerous hands. Helped by an electronics wiz (Annabeth Gish) and an imaginative scrap metal worker (Richard Roundtree), Irons becomes Steel. Wearing body armor, wielding a fearsome electrohammer and riding a gadget-packed motorcycle, he’s ready to wage war…if he can fix the untimely glitches in his untested gear. “You all be cool now,” the good-guy hero tells two crime victims he rescues. There’ll be a lot of thrillin’ before Steel himself can start chillin.’

“Well, I’ll be dipped in s*** and rolled in breadcrumbs”
Steel is one of those films where you constantly have to keep telling yourself “this is NOT a TV movie”. A cheap, outrageously bad superhero vehicle for the acting… er… talents?… of 7’1 basketball player Shaquille O’Neal.
Commendably, the film does actually have three clear acts, and Steel’s emergence, though underplayed, doesn’t happen for over forty minutes. In-jokes are a-plenty, as it mentions Batman, Superman, Jerry Maguire (“show me the money!”) and three instances of John Irons (O’Neal) having to net basketballs. The final time sees a life-threatening toss of a grenade. A lousy basketball player throughout, Shaq gets to quip “I never make these”. Or would you prefer Richard Roundtree as Uncle Joe, who designs Steel’s hammer for him? “I did the metalwork,” he explains, “I especially like the shaft.” Cue lots of double-takes and knowing glances, with Roundtree looking round, hands in the air, proclaiming “what?”
The special effects are reasonable for tv movie land, but, as this is (pinch me, I must be imagining it) a real cinema movie, they’re quite cheap. Steel is badly written, contains atrocious dialogue, is poorly acted, shabbily directed and with an overbearing, repetitive musical score. It is, of course, tremendously entertaining.
I’ve seen Steel and I’ll never recover.
I’ve never seen a movie as bad as this one. A few come close, but none have the power to topple “Steel”. First off, when are people going to realize most athletes can’t act, ESPECIALLY Shaq?? The effects are not-so-special, and are in fact quite terrible, which is ironic because so is the plot, the acting, and generally everything else in this so-called movie (read : vehicle to make some money off Shaq’s name). I think the director and producer deliberately wanted to insult the audience with this tremendous piece of crap.
