News & Interviews for Steel
Critic Reviews for Steel
Its protagonist is good-natured, wholesome, devoid of moral flaws and acutely civic-conscious. But good intentions aren't good enough, and this Shaq attack is too broad and episodic to attract anything other than the most undemanding crowd.
The Los Angeles Lakers' center, at 7-foot-1, is appealing and breathes much needed large life into a tolerable stinker of a film.
The concept may not be bad, but there are times when the execution borders on embarassing.
Steel isn't a movie to excite or even entertain. It exists to move merchandise -- specifically, Shaquille O'Neal's oversized physique and marketing machine.
Audience Reviews for Steel
This movie was...Okay. It certainly wasn't good, but it wasn;t too bad either. Shaq can't act, no more than he can shoot a decent free throw, but there was still some good. But as always, we begin with the bad.
The basketball puns in this movie were just PAINFUL PAINFUL PAINFUL!!! For example, there is one scene where Shaq has too shoot a grenade throw a hole in the wall with unlimited time and no one guarding him. GEE, I WONDER WHAT THAT MEANS. OUT OF ALL THE BASKETBALL PUNS, IT COULD BE ANY!!!
Then there was the acting. Shaq, of course, was pretty bad, but the villain was pretty bad too. I also didn't like the acting of the annoying kid. Just attrocious.
There was good though. The special affects in this movie had too be good to make up for the fact that Shaq played the main character, and they were. I felt like I was watching a Terminator film! Particulary the hammer. I lied the costume too, even if the entrance was a little dumb.
The plot was pretty good too, for a Shaq movie. It's kind of like Iron Man, but I don't really want to explain it.
This movie isn;t perfect, but it isn't horrible. In my opinion, it's smack dad in the middle.
About the same as Kazam in terms of quality, this is basically the poor man's Batman, even circa '97. Again, it has a bizarre unintentional comedy element to it that makes it worth watching. This has too many seriously toned moments though, which makes it tough to even get through. Poor Shaquille O'Neal really wanted to be a movie star.
im pretty sure the words "What? you've never seen Steel?" have never been blurted out before.
