If you haven’t heard of Real Steel yet, well, maybe you’ve been under a rock. I got to sneak a peek when I was in LA back in June, and while I haven’t gotten to see all of it, what I did see was full of heart, family friendly (although I think for older kids than mine) and tons of action. A great movie for the whole family to enjoy. Plus, Hugh Jackman. Yum. The little boy who plays Max, Dakota Goyo, is someone you will likely fall in love with! This film opens October 7 in theaters.
A gritty, white-knuckle, 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 brutal, no-holds-barred arena are raised, Charlie and Max, against all odds, get one last shot at a comeback.
