  • Sugar Ray Leonard helped with the motion-capture, and it shows. Good stuff. But the tear-jerking in Real Steel is as shameless as its product placement. We're being hustled. show more

  • If you can get past the ridiculousness of the setup - easy to do, because the posters make it clear this isn't a Woody Allen movie - it's pretty much impossible not to have fun. show more

  • It's an odd blend - a sentimental story in a futuristic world of brutal machine-maneuvered fights. There are some ringside thrills, but it's not a seamless mesh. show more

    The \"Rocky\" tie-ins throughout the movie were numerous; some obvious and some very subtle. The CGI efects were well done, and despite some of the over the top characters and acting, it was a very entertaining film.
