His name is Atom. Can we get him a fight?
I don't think he was ever a boxing robot.
He's a G2, built in early 2014. He's a sparring bot.
They must have built robots like this one that could mirror the fighting style of any other robot.
Okay, so can we get him a fight?
Are you not listening? He's a sparring bot. Built to take a lot of hits, but never dishing out any real punishment.
You can always try sell him off for parts.
Can't you get him a fight?
"Why can't you get him a fight?" God, you don't quit...

I love watching Real steel whenever possible, delightful scenes especially with the kid and Hugh Jackman is awesome throughout! VFX are incredible and well polished; I'm glad it was nominated. Shawn Levy has done many projects under his belt that I have absolutely loved or even just consider a guilty pleasure which is nice too. I like the cuteness in many parts, definitely one of the better robot movies made in last couple decades!
