ABOUT A gritty, white-knuckle, action ride set in the near-future where
THE MOVIE: 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.
