Love this movie and the Blu-ray contains a flawless transfer. I wish they did a bit more with the features, but what's here is decent. This isn't "reference" quality work, but the movie is one everyone should see.

Real Steel is constructed from two incompatible movies that should never have co-existed: serious science fiction set in a plausible near-future and a gooey, sentimental family drama.

When you have fighting robots, does it really matter if the story gets sappy?

Real Steel is a grating, coldly calculated mix of elements.

An affectionate and comprehensively detailed presentation of a surprisingly decent tent-pole movie.
