Real Steel

3

It's Rocky...but for robots.

Shawn Levy ’s robot Rocky imagines a future where machines replace humans in the boxing ring. OK , it’s not Ibsen, but if you want to please the 11-year-old boy in your life (or your inner child), you could do worse than this sentimental smash-’em-up.

Hugh Jackman keeps his muscles flexed as a washed-up fighter teaming with his estranged son (Dakota Goyo) and a creaky ’bot named Atom for one last shot.

Corny? Sure. But, thanks to Jackman, it’s got 10 times more soul than Transformers, without skimping on the slugging.
