Real Steel

Real Steel is a very interesting and surprisingly great family movie. I know some people (me included) may be kind of sick of below average movies with giant butt-kicking robots such as the last Transformers but believe me, this one is different. I said it is a family movie because it basically is about the journey between a father and his son in rediscovering themselves and how they rebuild their shattered relationship. It is also like Transformers meet Fight Club, a story of Rocky retold with boxing robots in WRB (World Robot Boxing).

Starring Hugh Jackman as Charlie Kenton, a former pro-boxing champion whose days of glory is all but behind him. Now a total loser and a "bad bet", he tries to dig himself out of holes only to fall into deeper ones. When he finds out that his ex-girlfriend has left him with an 11 year-old son whom he has never met, his life is about to turn around slowly and ultimately they become a great father and son's team on their way to create the people's champion in robot boxing!

The storyline is rather easy to guess but very effectively told. Highly recommended!
