    Nordling Says REAL STEEL Is The Real Deal!
    Ain't It Cool News: The best in movie, TV, DVD, and comic book news.

    The boxing matches are excellently done. Levy knows his action geography and there's never any question what is happening in each fight. As each fight escalates the stakes, Levy ratchets the tension and makes each fight matter. Saying this is Levy's best film isn't saying much considering his previous work, but this one feels like a passion project for all the love he puts into it. REAL STEEL genuinely entertains and excites kids of all ages. There isn't a cynical bone (or bolt) in its body. REAL STEEL pulls from those great 80s kids movies but doesn't feel like an homage, like SUPER 8 does at times. If you have children, they'll really groove on the robot bashing on display, but don't be surprised if you find yourself wiping a tear or two away at the ending yourself. REAL STEEL's a winner.

    You might as well just make this The October Movie so we can fight about it.

    Real Steel: Review

    Like the underdog movies that it emulates, Real Steel feels like a film worth defending – albeit with the caveat that it is exactly what you paid for. But that in itself is an accomplishment. It’s not a film where you have to apologize for the parts that don’t work, it doesn’t fall apart in the third act, and it doesn’t set itself up as a franchise to the point that it doesn’t feel like a complete thought. This is what Hollywood entertainment should be like: rousing, involving, with heart and a compelling story and performers.

    Rating: 8.5/10

    At this point, I'm only posting positive reviews just so you can read them.

    I don't give a **** about this movie either way.

    Doc...just for a moment...would you consider that even though this is l.c.d. that is made well enough to rise above it's low bar? Yes, that is a horrible indictment of entertainment as a whole. I agree. In the grand scheme, relative to other tentpole crap, isn't it ok to maybe enjoy something that rises above it's limitations. I am not saying that this movie should have been made, couldn't have been better if it were closer to the source material, etc. Every once in a while it's ok to enjoy trash as long as their are small concessions made to originality. Suppose this movie makes money. Maybe studios decide...hey, perhaps people want something a little more satisfying that GI Joe vs the Transformers. In the end isn't that a good thing? You point out the hypocrisy in me liking this when i hate all the cookie cutter garbage and constantly complain about it, well, what can I do? In this day and age i have to pick from the crap that is offered and when i see something that isn't so patronizing and driveltastic I have to go in with lowered expectations and hope. Yes Doc...hope. You remember that don't you? All I am hoping from this flick that it is the cinematic equivalent of Chinese food...filling, but forgettable a half hour later. That's what it's come to.
