Real Steel

(PG-13) ★★☆☆☆

This genre mash-up stars Hugh Jackman as Charlie, ex-fighter and deadbeat dad who hasn’t seen his offspring in years. The year is 2020. Human boxing is no longer; robot boxing rules. Circumstances dump his preteen Max (Dakota Goyo) into Charlie’s lap at a low point in his career. The two prepare their junkyard robot, Atom, for battle against a Russian fighter in the World Robot Boxing League. This one is contrived, sappy, way too long and will probably be a big hit.
