Real Steel

On January 24, Real Steel will be muscling its way into all of our living rooms. This is a must have for your movie collection!

Set in the not-so-distant future where boxing has gone high-tech and 2000-pound, 8-foot-tall steel robots have taken over the ring, the film stars Hugh Jackman as Charlie Kenton, Evangeline Lilly as Bailey Tallet, Dakota Goyo as Max Kenton, Kevin Durand as Ricky, and Anthony Mackie as Finn.

Bill and I were lucky enough to go see this in the theater. It is a great movie. We thoroughly enjoyed it (Who would have thought fighting robots would make for such a good story?!?). There are some plot twists that are a bit of a stretch. However, overall a very good story. It is rated PG-13 for violence, intense action, and brief language (it was no worse than watching a playoff football game). For us, we let our kids watch it, and they liked it too. With us, they found themselves cheering for Charlie and Max. There are some great lessons to be learned — love triumphs all, don’t quit, etc.

The Blu-ray Combo Pack offers viewers a variety of supplemental bonus features that take them ringside with Director Shawn Levy on the making of the film. Exclusive features include a bare-knuckled exposé of the life story of Charlie Kenton (Hugh Jackman), deleted and extended scenes that go deeper into the film and storylines, and a riveting profile with legendary boxing champion Sugar Ray Leonard. Plus, the revolutionary Real Steel Second Screen app lets viewers sync their iPad or computer with the Blu-ray movie to peel back layers of effects with progression reels, check out 360-degree turnarounds of the robots, explore seamless branching pods that delve into the cutting-edge technology used to create the fights, and much more.
