When I was in LA I had the privilege of screening the trailer for the DreamWorks film Real Steel, and I was blown away! When I initially heard about it, I thought it sounded a little strange. Robots boxing, people placing bets, people bonding with robots...yeah, I didn't know how they were going to pull it off, until I saw it for myself. This movie looks like it's going to be amazing. I love the cast and Hugh Jackman & Evangeline Lilly will not disappoint, but I think I'm more excited to watch Dakota Goyo, because it's his performance with Hugh Jackman that gives this movie heart. The father-son story line, is one that can never be over played, and it excites me to see it taking the theater by storm this year! As far as "feeling" the robots, I think the musical scores, have served their purpose, they help stir strong emotion as you watch these robots battle, and you too will find yourself rooting for your favorite bot, as if he were a man!
Yes, all that from a sneak peek! I am taking my boys to see this one, this weekend! You can learn more about Real Steel on Facebook
