Real Steel

Rated PG-13 127 min. 2011



This Steven Spielberg-produced blockbuster kills two clichéd genres with one stone, giving us both an underdog sports movie and a father-son bonding movie. Set in a future where robots box instead of humans, a former boxer (Hugh Jackman) and his estranged son (Dakota Goyo) get to know one another as they train a mechanical palooka to become the movie's resident Cinderella boy. But no matter how much rousing, quick-cutting intensity director Shawn Levy (perpetrator of those damn Night at the Museum movies) instills in those fight sequences, they can't cover up the corn that's all over the script.
