Although Real Steel doesn’t hit theaters for another month or so, I’ve taken it upon myself to review the movie based on what I’ve seen in the trailer. That way, I can hopefully save some people their money. Here goes…
Okay, so it’s, like, in the future, right? And then Hugh Jackman, who’s this surly/super hot curmudgeon who used to be really good at something, finally gets a second chance to be good at something.
Kate from Lost doesn’t believe in him.
But this little kid does. In fact, he’s the one who’s like, “yeah, you should totally get back into Rock ’em Sock ’em Robots” and at first Hugh Jackman is all, like, “grr, no! I’m too busy filming that sequel to Wolverine to concentrate on boxing!” But then he totally does it anyways.
In the end, Hugh Jackman has a Mickey Rourke in The Wrestler-size comeback and everybody is glad that he fights robots and stuff and junk.
