The shooting schedule was 51 days, with 32 full nights of shooting in downtown Los Angeles. Shaquille O'Neal was already committed to playing in the 1996 Summer Olympics, and training at the Los Angeles Lakers camp in Hawaii, leaving Johnson five weeks to shoot all of O'Neal's scenes. O'Neal had one read through of the script before the Olympics, then worked on his character with acting coach Ben Martin between games. When O'Neal returned to act with the rest of the cast, he had all his lines memorized. See more »
Steel's armor is supposed to be made from steel, which he forged himself. Throughout the film, his armor and helmet flex as if they were made of painted rubber. See more »
One of the worst movies I've ever seen, and I've seen quite a few.
James Berardinelli gave this 2/4 stars - more than he gave "Trees Lounge." I find that hard to believe. This is one of the worst films I have ever seen in my entire lifetime, and I've seen quite a few.
It's yet another comic-book-adaptation based on a series that was unpopular to begin with. Shaq does his Attack as Steel, a superhero who runs around very slow in a heavy metal suit.
Whereas Spidey and Batman, et al, all have their special powers, Steel really just has a bulletproof metal suit - the "wire shooter" is a rip-off of the device used by Michael Keaton in "Batman." It attaches itself to a building and up, up and away he goes! However, the device moves at an astonishingly slow pace. Why didn't the cops just shoot him instead of standing there for over thirty seconds (yes, I counted) watching him pulled up into the air by a thin thread?
No matter. This movie is awful. Not even Richard Roundtree can save it.
And what's with the wheelchair lady?
Why, Bender, why?
