DreamWorks Pictures’ REAL STEEL, starring Hugh Jackman, Dakota Goyo, Evangeline Lilly, Anthony Mackie, and Kevin Durand, opened in theatres everywhere on October 7th. The movie, rated PG-13, is a fast paced action drama. The rating was given the PG-13 rating for “some violence, intense action and brief language.”
I had the opportunity to view the movie with my 10 year old son and another mother and child. The children enjoyed the movie fully; however, I have to admit I cringed a few times. Although, the fighting scenes were conducted by robots, except for one, I still cringed each time the blow struck its mark. I believe it was because Atom, Hugh Jackson’s robot, displayed such human charactaristics.
I do not recommend the movie for children under 10, who are senstive to violence, because it may give them nightmares. If, however, you have older children, like I do, I think its a great movie, especially for boys. I know I will be buying the movie for my tween once it comes out!
Below is a brief synopsis and trailer for the movie.
A action ride set in the near-future where the sport of boxing has gone high-tech, “Real Steel” stars Hugh Jackman as Charlie Kenton, a washed-up fighter who lost his chance at a title when 2000-pound, 8-foot-tall steel robots took over the ring. Now nothing but a small-time promoter, Charlie earns just enough money piecing together low-end bots from scrap metal to get from one underground boxing venue to the next. When Charlie hits rock bottom, he reluctantly teams up with his estranged son Max (Dakota Goyo) to build and train a championship contender. As the stakes in the no-holds-barred arena are raised, Charlie and Max, against all odds, get one last shot at a comeback.
