Mini Review - Real Steal

Real Steel (out Oct 6) is set in the not-to-distant future and sees a father reconnect with his 11 y/o son thanks to a shared love for robot boxing. I didn't have many expectations going in... but this film was freaking cool! It has a spirit that is often lacking in CGI-laden action flicks. Hugh Jackman is terrific but the stand out is youngster Dakota Goyo. Audiences will love him! Grade: A-.
