What the Varchar?
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.
I was able to catch a prescreening of this movie and I have to say- I loved it! The story is exciting, touching and has the ending I was hoping for. I was left wanting more of the action. The robots are so awesome and futuristic, yet very believable because we know that much (if not all) of the technology already exists. They certainly made me wish robot boxing was an event I could witness in real life. I like the idea much more that seeing people boxing and getting hurt! Check out the trailer below and make plans to see Real Steel when it opens October 7th! (Follow Real Steel on Facebook and Twitter.)
