    I was surprised that the movie was pretty good, but definitely a mix of Rocky and Over the Top.

    I haven't seen the movie but I'm picturing a giant robot being beaten in a fight then turning his hat around backwards and proceeding to kick the shit out of the other robot. On a side note i saw the kid from over the top on Tosh.0 a few weeks ago, I haven't thought about that guy forever he was in quite a few movies when he was a kid/teen

    I thought it was alright, and my kids loved it. I don't care if it ripped off "Over the Top" because after you set the nostalgia aside Over the Top sucked lol, and every boxing movie that comes out after Rocky is a rip-off of Rocky.

    I didn't like it. It was soooo cheesey. And I was so distracted by Hugh Jackman's bad accent.

    It is a total ripoff of Over The Top. The only thing missing was the awful 80's soundtrack and Robert Loggia as the villain.

    With a name like Hugh Jackman I'll be doing some porn instead.

    Rocky meets Transformers.

    I thought this was an enjoyable Sci-fi version of boxing movies and had a good concept.

    Jackman is still a fine actor.

    I saw this in theaters for 3 bucks. Hugh jackmans character was a terrible father. Now that you guys mention it, it does feel like a combined rip-off of both Rocky and Over the top. It's still entertaining though.


    Agree completely.

    I watched this movie the other night. It wasn't great, but it was a little bit better than I expected. I had low standards for the movie before watching it.

    Watched this movie for the first time last night and I really liked it, but can't we be honest and say that its basically a rip off of Over the Top and Rocky?


    I was thinking Over the Top too. My biggest issue was how the son kept commenting how the robot had something more like an AI but yet he was the first person trying to get the thing to fight to the death so to speak. I was waiting for the moment when the characters where going to say stop it's not worth it... but nope. Moral of the story, reliving ones glory days and gaining a renewed confidence in yourself is worth destroying something possibly divine in nature? Blah jocks all over the worth rejoiced I'm sure. Other than that not bad.

    I just happened to watch the movie Courageous right after this one. I liked Courageous alot more as far as fathers reconnecting with sons/families go.


    Courageous is an excellent movie! Powerful message. One that I think all dad's need to watch.

    Oh for sure, me too. They are not stopping though. Upcoming:
    -Wizard of Oz prequel
    -Maleficent (like Wicked but for Sleeping Beauty instead of Oz)
    -Sherman & Mr Peabody

    I don't even pay attention to this stuff or try to find out about it. This is just what I've come across from hanging out on RJ in the past couple of days.

    Yeah I know but not a great concept. I really wish they would stop ripping off old concepts, products, other media and create some decent original thought based movies.

    I watched real steel last week. I had mixed feelings about it, because the movie itself is a mixed bag. It kept bouncing between hard/fast action & excrutiatingly long, wrsit slittingly boring down times. I guess they were trying to imbue the film with tension & drama, but they failed miserably. Going from a boxing match to a scene of someone laying there staring at the stars for an hour (without even any dialog or naration nor anything at all, it could have been just a still photograph on the screen) just fails, utterly.
