This movie about robot boxing needs more robot boxing.

Real Steel envisions a future where boxing has evolved into giant fighting robots. Great special effects and cool fight choreography makes this a must-see.

Good thing we all love Hugh Jackman so much

Real Steel offers plenty of fun and engaging moments -- of both the human character drama and giant CGI robot battle variety.

"Real Steel" just never gives us a reason to care, and for two hours that can be quite detrimental.

...the film benefits substantially from the inclusion of several unexpectedly engrossing robot-on-robot fight sequences...

Wow, they actually made Rock Em Sock Em Robots - The Movie! Even more surprising is how amazing this movie is. Filled to the brim with heart, soul, grit, and fun. One of the best movies of 2011.

Combustible Celluloid

The visual effects are a slick combination of real robots and CGI, and -- especially on the new Blu-Ray release -- the result is gloriously seamless.

R. L. Shaffer

By no means is Real Steel an original film, at least in terms of its base story, but that doesn't mean it's not an effective, tear-jerking kids movie.

Clash time between the machines is nigh overwhelming in this never-before-seen context, and that's the payoff here.

"Real Steel" has all the brainless fun of Rock'em Sock'em Robots and the heart and rousing fight sequences of "Rocky."

Never in a million years did I think that I would enjoy a boxing robot movie from the director of Night at the Museum.

Linda Cook
KWQC-TV (Iowa)

'Real Steel' about an estranged son and his father, a man who's been beaten down by repeated failures, a needy boy who finds something he can believe in, and, of course, it's a sports movie, too, because it's sort of a metallic 'Rocky.'

Time to Play Magazine

This much is clear as soon as they meet: father and son have matching attitudes, both resentful of their sudden connection and very tough on the outside even as they're really vulnerable.

The Sabotage Times

A film that feels as if it's been written by a five-year-old who's been allowed to create it as some sort of bizarre birthday present this is undemanding all the way

The robots are fun, but the script never gets beyond cliches

Vue Weekly (Edmonton, Canada)

Characters' smug, this-is-so-cool!ness and jingoistic, heartland subtext tries to knock us into submission. The hero's one of those animatronic adults in kid's clothing.

Silly, corny and featuring nearly every boxing cliché... But fighting robots? Dads and their young sons will have a blast.

Eric Melin

Even with my sense of humor firmly intact, I'm not sure that I've seen a more crassly manipulative movie this year. As cold and calculating as movies get -- a glossy, soulless piece of junk that wants you to cheer along, but it doesn't earn one ounce.
