Critics Consensus: Real Steel Puts Up a Good Fight

Summary

This week at the movies, we've got boxing robots (Real Steel, starring Hugh Jackman and Anthony Mackie) and a political scandal (The Ides of March, starring Ryan Gosling and George Clooney). What do the critics have to say? You wanna see giant robots punching each other? Then by all means go see Real Steel, which critics say is essentially robo-Rocky, but be prepared for some schmaltz. The Ides of March's message isn't particularly novel -- politics is a rough, cynical business -- but critics say George Clooney's latest directorial effort is still a smart tale of political intrigue with a terrific cast.
