Real Steel (2011)

I went to see the new Hugh Jackman film which is a robot fighting movie with a heart of gold, it is the story of Charlie Kenton played by Hugh Jackman, who is an ex boxer and now trains and builds Robot fighters. And then he finds out the mother of his child has died and he sees instead of a child a paycheck and from there you have the story of a father and son who do not know each other who are spending the summer together before the Son, played by Dakota Goyo moves in with his aunt.

You have a love interest for Charlie in the form of his boxing trainer's daughter Bailey played by Evangeline Lily who played Kate on Lost. They had fairly good chemistry and a believable relationship and you were rooting for them to get together. The story is fairly predictable however the effects were truly awesome with Atom being as much a character as any of the living people and the fight scenes were awesome. This film for me is aimed at a young audience so the bad guys are obvious and outlandish and are played well on the small scale by Kevin Durand and on the grand scale by Karl Yune and Olga Fonda.

I loved and enjoyed this film and give it a strong 4 stars and recommend for the acting, the story and the special effects, go and see this and enjoy it.
