Real Steel my heart…

real steelLast night I had the opportunity to watch an advanced screening of the new Dreamworks film “Real Steel” starring Hugh Jackman.

I’d seen the previews of the movie and while I thought it looked good it reminded me a little too much of the movie “Over the Top” with Sylvester Stallone. Do you all remember that movie? It’s about a truck driver who, after his wife dies, tries to make amends with the son he left years earlier.

So this is what I went into the theater thinking about. I had my popcorn and my bottle of water, I got the big bottle because I figured if I had to leave to use the restroom it wouldn’t be missing much.

I drank about a quarter of my bottle of water before I decided I needed to stop so I didn’t have to leave to use the restroom. 🙂

From the opening scene Hugh Jackman’s character, Charlie Kenton, is absolutely lovable and you can’t help but cheer for this washed out fighter who is down on his luck. The dynamic between Kenton and his son makes you laugh and tugs at your heart strings as they begin to develop their relationship.

Here’s another quick clip.

The movie is a bit violent, but then it is about fighting robots. I do know that my 6 year old son will love it and I plan on taking him when it comes to our favorite theater here in town.

So now for you, Dreamworks was kind enough to give me a Real Steel prize pack to giveaway!

  25. Mitchell C says:

    I think they’ll have a different kind of fuel, hopefully. As well as computers and keyboards and stuff that are just projected, instead of screens and things.

  32. Deborah Wellenstein says:

    2020 is only 9 years away-I don’t think we’ll have flying personal hovercraft or anything-I think computers will continue to evolve, with easier navigation of store sales, and people being able to access any surface as their computer screens.
