Real Steel Trailer: Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em Robots as a Movie?

So, what we have here is Rock’em Sock’em Robots, the movie. I have to be honest and say this looks like it is gonna be one of the big duds of 2011. Maybe I’m in the minority, but a movie with some goofy looking robots boxing (and the presence of an annoying kid) doesn’t appeal to me at all. I’m not sure what Hugh Jackman was thinking when he took this role. I’m guessing he didn’t grow up with the same games I did as a kid, so perhaps he doesn’t get the correlation. Or maybe he is trying to make people feel better about the Wolverine movie by making a worse film. Watch the trailer and tell me I’m wrong (I still won’t believe it).  I loved the game as a kid—for about 5 minutes—and then it got boring, so how are they gonna stretch this out for 100 minutes or more? Even taking it as a kid’s movie it looks uninteresting. Looks like I’ll be waiting for the TNT premiere of this one.

    I was meh too, until I found out they made actual giant robots for the fight scenes instead of using CGI.

    Well, I will be happy to eat crow if this one turns out good.

    It’s giant robots in an action flick. What could go wrong?


    Is Michael Bay involved?
