  • Real Steel's emphatic concept, stunning visuals make up for the somewhat-cheesy-inspirational aspect. The film is enough to go the distance and have audiences invested. 4/5 Eugene Bernabe

  • Real Steel is an amazing Si-Fi film and best of 2011 of this genre(tie with Super 8).Another SS masterpiece. Hugh did superb,He was just freaking amazing and he really was the perfect choice. Dakota did better then I hoped .Also Eva , Olga and others did really good job .

  • "Real Steel" is the real deal. Set in the near future, 2020, human boxing is now obsolete. Robot boxing is the reigning form of entertainment that gives audiences the brutal carnage without damage to human life.

  • (In the real world, 'bots can be rendered helpless on their backs, like turtles.) It also must be said that in color and design, the robots of "Real Steel" are glamorous and futuristic-retro enough to pose for the cover of Thrilling Wonder Stories.

  • Screen Rant's Ben Kendrick reviews Real Steel. The sheer mention of giant robots fighting to the death is likely to remind moviegoers of Michael Bay's Transformers films - but Real Steel is definitely a different breed of metal-on-metal action.

  • Real Steel is able to have fun with the fighting robots while also having a story between a father and son, and both sides of the movie come together to make what ends up being a decent movie. You really dislike Hugh Jackman early in the film.

  • The Tomatometer rating – based on the published opinions of hundreds of film and television critics – is a trusted measurement of movie and TV programming quality for millions of moviegoers.

  • The movie has a lot to say about redemption and forgiveness between a father and his son. It also makes you think about how we cast aside older models (computers, cell phones, people) for flashier, newer varieties, often forgetting that there's value in what came before.

  • The Verdict. Real Steel is a prime example of a film-to-game adaptation gone wrong. It perpetuates the stereotype that games based on movies aren't good with a missed opportunity to use ...

  • Real Steel received mixed reviews from critics. Review aggregation website Rotten Tomatoes gives a rating of 59% based on reviews from 219 critics, with a rating average of 5.9/10. The website's consensus is, "Silly premise notwithstanding, this is a well-made Hollywood movie: Thrilling and exciting action with just enough characterization."
