// A contender to the throne for most ridiculous robot movie ever made, Reel Steel is clearly looking to pick up where Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen left off.
Hugh ‘I made the wost sell out commercial ever‘ Jackman has plonked himself in this movie and it looks shithouse. I don’t think i could dislike this as much as Wolverine, but it’s time to have a word with your agent Hugh. Get him on speed dial 1 please.
It isn’t “real” and it stinks of “video game”. Grow up Hugh. Watch the trailer and you’ll see what I mean.
Synopsis: A gritty, white-knuckle, action ride set in the near-future where the sport of boxing has gone high-tech, Real Steel stars Hugh Jackman as Charlie Kenton, a washed-up fighter who lost his chance at a title when 2000-pound, 8-foot-tall steel robots took over the ring. Now nothing but a small-time promoter, Charlie earns just enough money piecing together low-end bots from scrap metal to get from one underground boxing venue to the next. When Charlie hits rock bottom, he reluctantly teams up with his estranged son Max (Dakota Goyo) to build and train a championship contender. As the stakes in the brutal, no-holds-barred arena are raised, Charlie and Max, against all odds, get one last shot at a comeback.
The kid in the trailer is the front-runner for ‘most annoying on-screen brat of 2011.’ Good luck in award season!
I couldn’t care less when this arrives and neither should you.
Thanks for reading.
