Flick Picks: Real Steel
The ads for this Hugh Jackman boxing robot movie, directed by Shawn Levy (Night at the Museum), make it look like Transformers 6. But could these fighting metal heads—think Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em Robots—actually be a contender? One of our critics thinks Yes! The other says No! Jackman plays Charlie, a retired champ from the future, who inherits both his long-lost son (the terrific Dakota Goyo) and a tough-fighting robot named Atom. If you consider your iPod a member of your family and wept during The Brave Little Toaster, this could be the movie for you.
