‘Real Steel’

Movie Trailer Review

By our guest blogger, Joe Oliveto

We just can’t get enough of fighting CGI robots, can we? With the “Transformers” franchise earning the big bucks at the box office, Hollywood was bound to throw a few rip-offs into the ring.

However, as far as rip-offs go, “Real Steel” has a lot going for it. First of all, the story is highly reminiscent of a classic “Twilight Zone” episode entitled “Steel,” and as sci-fi geeks know, any association with that show is oftentimes a good one. On top of that, it has Hugh Jackman and Evangeline Lilly in key roles.

This might have potential.

As far as the trailer itself is concerned, well it isn’t spectacularly interesting, but few trailers are these days. We get enough sense of the plot to let us know if it is something which would be worth our money, and some rapid-fire editing of what appear to be “intense scenes.” Nothing you haven’t exactly seen before.

Still, while “Real Steel” seems to be aiming for an “E.T. With Robots” vibe and falling a little bit short, it does appear that director Shawn Levy has made an honest attempt to focus more on the emotion of the film and less on the special effects and action. This might be worth checking out.
