At the beginning of the fight between Noisy Boy and Midas as Charlie and Max are standing on the rising platform on the edge of the ring, Max first has his arms down by his sides (28:16 to 28:21 from behind), then he is holding a briefcase under his right arm with his left hand steadying its front (28:22 to 28:26 from in front), then both arms are at his sides and his right hand is holding the briefcase by its handle (28:27 to 28:29 from behind) when Charlie hands him a second bag so he is holding one bag in each hand as he steps into the ring.

I had low expectations and I am sure many people did so too, however I did rather quite enjoy the movie for various factors in which I will List: Every scene had purpose - No pointless scenes which have no impact on the audience. The Ending - Original and Motivating, showed it had a moral to the story (If you watched the movie, you would know)
HOWEVER, unfortunately the kid put me off immensely. I appreciate his confidence in acting but his screaming and his cheesy lines were just off putting. I also noticed that his technological understanding was ridiculously high, which is rather unrealistic...And that is an understatement.
That being said, I can sense a 'Real Steel 2' and would hope it turns out as good as this first one. Sequels are very hard to perfect especially for this movie, but I digress.
This movie is worth watching and if you plan on watching it, be sure to prepare your tissues.
