This punishingly predictable tale will test whether sci-fi action fanboys can stomach having their cherished genre infiltrated by sentimental hokum about a down-on-his-luck dad and his spunky long-lost son.
He's only giving it a negative view because the guy who took his job liked it.

I saw an advanced screening and couldn't agree more.

why u gotta be so negative about a story of courage u jaded critic
Sep 29 - 01:43 PM
Why do you have to butcher the English language with your half-a-tard logic?
Sep 29 - 08:54 PM
u most be a critic too, i think ur expecting to much from film these days. this is a well produced flick with lots of talent invested. If this was the first movie u ever saw, i bet u would love it bro. HALF-A-TARD logic,,,mmmmmm and im the one butchering the english language,,,rEally!
Oct 3 - 01:28 PM
Yes....yes you are the one butchering the English language. It's "must", not "most". It's "you", not "u". It's "too", not "to". Etc, etc...
And just because a critic doesn't like a particular movie, that doesn't make him jaded. It's simply his OPINION. And just because a movie is a story of courage, doesn't mean it's automatically good. So yes, you're using "half-a-tard" logic...

Story of courage? Really!?
Sep 30 - 12:29 PM
That just means you have bad taste.
Sep 30 - 11:14 PM
A story of courage can be told badly.

It's objectively bad, sort of like your immature sensibilities Shawn.

Reel Steel doesn't even look good. It looks like Rock-em-sock-em robots the movie. Looks just awful. I will save my full review until I eventually see it but it doesn't look very good.

I don't know, I thought this sounded terrible, but the preview against my will won me over. McCarthy comes across a bit like someone who was never going to like this from the start. I'll give it a shot.
Sep 30 - 05:39 PM
Yeah I saw the trailer and it doesn't look good. I bet it'll be bad because it looks just awful and terrible. It'll probably be bad, I mean it looks really bad. Did I mention how bad it looks?
Oct 1 - 11:23 AM
Bahaha! That actually made me laugh.
Oct 5 - 02:36 PM
I think Ill give this movie a chance, so far a lot of other critics are liking this , so ill give it a shot

The fact that it looks like Rock Em Sock Em Robots: The Movie is exactly the reason as to why it looks good. Do you have no nostalgia in your heart? Also, Hugh Jackman is awesome.

I admit I did get a bit of Robot Jox nostalgia for the movie, but I just can't help but think this movie is going to be a lot more fun than its competition The Ides of March which looks like this years really well made George Clooney movie that tests your endurance and you'll never watch again. Every year has one.

"looks like this years really well made George Clooney movie that tests your endurance and you'll never watch again."
HAHAHAHAHAHA!!! Seriously. The Yearly Clooney Sermons can be exhausting :)
I got to go see a preview of this movie, and it was a LOT of fun AND actually had a plot. A predictable plot, but at least a plot.
It won't make you Question Everything You Thought You Knew, but you'll have a fun time watching it !

Now that Armond White is gone, they are missing out on a positive review for this movie.
Oct 1 - 02:02 PM
