On January 24thREAL STEEL on Blu-ray & DVD will be released. I was recently sent a Real Steel Blu-ray & DVD to review. We really liked this movie. Set in the near future when boxing was deemed too dangerous for humans and replaced with Bots, Hugh Jackman plays Charlie Kenton, a down on his luck boxer who lost his chance at a title when the Bots took over the sport. Charlie’s estranged 11-year-old son Max played by Dakota Goyo shows up in his life when his mother dies.
When Max discovers a robot named Atom, he forms a bond with him and although he is told Atom is junk and should be sold for parts, he stands up for him. So there is Atom, the underdog Bot who with the love and loyalty of a little boy starts to rise against all odds. When offered a huge sum of money for Atom which Charlie wants to take, Max will not hear of it. The culmination brings this father and son together as they have to trust in each other to help Atom in his greatest fight. You will be cheering for this underdog of a robot the way you did for Rocky and the father and son dynamic reminded me of, The Champ. I really liked this movie and it will really pull at your heart-strings as it brings the father and son together and shows that a winner is not always determined by a title. This movie is a winner for our family and I think it will be for many others. A true feel good family movie that will have you cheering out loud.

Our favorite Bonus Feature was Countdown To The Fight: The Charlie Kenton Story which was cool because it had the feel of a VH1 Behind the Music episode. It gave you an in depth look at Charlie Kenton, his youth, his life, and the interviews in it from Hugh Jackman as Charlie and Dakota Goyo as Max, really were believable and made everything seem like a true story. It was very interesting.
