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.

For a superstar with unbelievable looks, charm, versatility and range, it is positively astounding how much time and energy Hugh Jackman wastes on mediocre movies. So from the previews, I dreaded Real Steel. An action flick about boxing robots? I made plans to be out of town. Well, I guess there’s no fool like an old fool. I have seen Real Steel. Get ready. It is exciting, palpitating, surprisingly fresh, action-packed, double-barreled dynamite.
