(kr) wrote: Real Steel is the story of a boy and his father, an ex boxer played by Wolverine, and their fight to the top of a Robot Boxing league. Essentially, this movie takes place in the future where real boxing has been replaced with robo boxing; kinda like battle bots, but the robots are all humanoid looking. Anyways, Wolverine plays a deadbeat who can't catch a break, and whose robot keeps getting the shit kicked out of him. For reasons I won't get into in this review, Wolverine's son ends up having to live with him for a while, and they end up at a junk yard one day where the kid finds a rare prototype robot named Atom who is designed to take hits, and can mirror the movements of his operator. With their new robot ready to go, wolverine and his boy go back to the robot battle arena, and kick robot ass.When the movie first came out, someone told me it was Rock em Sock em Robots: The Movie, and I believed them because, I mean, they're making movies from every piece of shit novelty franchise these days (see: Battleship). But one day I happened to catch the movie after a couple minutes into the first act, and as I started watching it, I couldn't help but realize I was actually really engaged. Something about this movie just happens to fall in line, and creates a fun action movie, buffered by great acting, and some surprisingly touching moments. The script isn't anything super original, but the director makes good use of it, and as you watch it you find yourself actually caring about the characters in a way you didn't really expect.Technically speaking, there's nothing in this movie that's too fantastic, but the CGI is well executed, and manages to blend very well with the rest of the scenery (including the actors, typically a difficult feat). For a movie that essentially has "Robots Fighting" as its logline that's an important point, and it's this point that clinches it a good rating. TL;DR - 7/10It's not Citizen Kane, but it's also not trying to be. Real Steel delivers on every count that it needs to, and thanks to some solid acting from the cast, great character design for the robots, and an engaging world, the film becomes not only something worth watching when you're bored, but something that you'll find yourself having fun watching. If you're in the mood for an action flick with a bit of heart, give this one a view.

(ru) wrote: Boring movie with no funny jokes. The music was bad too and the plot was basic and boring. Thank god their were recliners. I took a nice nap. Seriously this movie was rotten and I wonder who gave this the green light?
(ag) wrote: The fourth Dirty Harry installment does little to impress. It did however have the famous line, "Go ahead, make my day." Eastwood directs this one but it has a weak plot and having the story take place outside of San Francisco took away alot of the urban feel of the first 3 Dirty Harry films.

(us) wrote: According to IMDB, this film is director Sun Cheng's homage to Akira Kurosawa's "Yojimbo," but I failed to see much of a connection outside of there being two waring clans. Ti Lung plays a kung fu instructor specializing in weapons and teachers a young protege in order to defeat their enemies. What the story lacks in originality, it makes up for with well done training and fight sequences. Also of note is that this film marked one of the first uses of Steadicam in a Shaw Brothers production, which although it's not exactly Stanley Kubrick, is still kind of fun and not something you see in many of these old school 1970s kung fu action flicks. Overall, this is a solid Shaw Brothers production that's well worth watching.

(au) wrote: Masterful and underrated film from John Ford. It's not that well known but it's as brilliant as his best work. The sympathetic portrait of Mormons headed West is intriguing.

(us) wrote: Daft, retro, shallow and wholly implausible mess in a sharp 1990s suit. The sort of film they really couldn't keep making after Austin Powers came out.The immense potential of Sean Bean as Bond's evil twin is mostly wasted, but the film's made watchable by absolutely superb camerawork, Famke Janssen's outrageous vamping as one of the series' most watchable villainesses, and Pierce Brosnan making Bond the paragon of slickness (though he communicates entirely in one-liners).
