In an apparent nod to WWE Legend Hulk Hogan, during his entry into the ring for the match against Atom the world champion robot "Zeus" mimics the 'signature' Hulk Hogan pose with his hands. (In the DVD commentary Shawn Levy mentions that Zeus' signature move is, unintentionally, exactly the same as the move by The Thinker in Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian (2009) which Levy also directed.)

Given that Hugh Jackman is left-handed, Atom is seen at times mirroring Charlie rather than mimicking him. In many scenes, especially in the fight between Atom and Zeus, Atom is clearly fighting right-handed while Charlie is shadow boxing left-handed. This is perhaps the reason why Atom is seen to be alternating between mimicking and mirroring even though according to how shadow boxing is explained in the film he should be only mimicking. This is also easily seen, though, when you notice the person running the shadow function either facing Atom or not. The shadow apparently mirrors when the operator is facing him and in mimic when not. See more »
Great Movie. Perfect Match of emotions, Robo-fight(very Importantly not over done) and some comic scenes.
I had been waiting to see this movie for a long time, saw it today and it was worth all the wait.
The move has a perfect blend of emotions, Robo-fight(very Importantly not over done) and some comic scenes, what else do you want?
For me the robot fighting was great. Have been following Huge Jackman's movies off late and all have them have been good including this one. But apart from all of that the movie has an embedded message that there are things that sometimes you can not handle or overlook when you have other priorities but you can always make things right, it may be hard but it can be done.
The kid Dakota Goyo did a good job as well.
So I would say go out there and see the movie, worth every penny that you will spend for the ticket.
