Real Steel (2011)
Rock em Sock em Robots the movie, delivered a powerful punch
I saw this movie last night (7/9/11) I highly doubted I would enjoy this movie at all, but it proved me wrong. Don't get me wrong this certainly isn't the best movie ever, the best movie about boxing ever, it's not even Hugh Jackman's best movie. The story heavily borrowed from other movies such as Rocky, especially down to the ending. The movie had a basic story, but some kind of magical element to it, like the children's movies us in our 20's watched back in the late 80's and early 1990's. I remember seeing the previews for this movie, and couldn't get over the fact that it was going to be terrible, but like the small, under powered robot, ATOM the main emphasis of the movie, it surprised me and delivered. I may not see this movie again, but I will remember it as a solid, well put together fill because of the spirit and work put into it's writing, acting and special effects. There was a lot of visual things to look for, especially product placements of the future, Xbox 720 caught my eye during the final fight against the champion Zeus. References from Rocky I picked up: A down on his luck boxer gets the chance of a lifetime, The Champion is named after a God (Apollo in Rocky and Zeus in Real Steel)It borrowed elements from other stories like the robot was configured and put together again in the film, a comparison and observation I do not think was intended for us to realize, more of a coincidence.
