Review: Real Steel

Set in the near future, where robot boxing is a top sport, a struggling promoter feels he’s found a champion in a discarded robot. During his hopeful rise to the top, he discovers he has an 11-year-old son who wants to know his father.

I don’t think there isn’t anyone who wouldn’t want to own a robot and whats cooler then a bunch of robots fighting. Honestly I wasn’t sure of what the story was with this movie, all I knew was that robots were going to be beating each other senseless and that was entertaining enough for me to go see it. It turned out to be a lot more then that, its about litte guy against the big guy, and Hugh Jackman getting hope and getting to know his son again. And with a great story you get to see a bunch of robots beating the crap out of each other consistently so it only made a good story better. I for one like Hugh Jackman and I really liked him in this movie, and Goyo playing his kid was pretty spunky, I liked him too. If you have seen the movie then I want the robot called Noisy Boy following me around and fighting under my command, damn cool robot.

Review: Deception

Ewan McGreggor and Hugh Jackman are both actors that I tend to like, so I expected something different from this movie. I have to say that they played their characters very well. Ewan is an account working at the biggest law firm, but life seems to be passing him by until Jackman enters the picture and introduces him into a world of extacy and intrigue. It is very interesting once things start coming together, it does have its boring parts but still pretty good and I liked the characters they played.
