Sci-Fi Film 'Real Steel' Muscles Into Theaters

Ad Feedback

Science fiction fans might be interested in "Real Steal," an action packed movie hitting theaters this weekend.

The year is 2020 and the world of boxing has gone high tech, shunning flesh-and-blood prize fighters for the robot variety.

A promoter named Charles Kenton (Hugh Jackman) is hoping one discarded robot will turn out to be a boxing champion and revive his floundering career.

Along the way, Kenton starts to reconnect with his 11-year-old son.

The script appeared to resonate with Jackman who, like his character, is the father of an 11-year-old boy as well as a daughter, 6. 

"This is the first time they've (Jackman's children) really connected with one of my films. I don't let them watch X-Men," the actor told Access Hollywood.

"Most of the time they don't really ask me much about my job," he revealed. "They come on set, but it's just Dad, it's normal. This is the first time they were like, 'We love this!'"

Focus on the Family movie critic Bob Waliszewski reviewed "Real Steel" and other films on the CBN News Channel's Midday News, Oct. 7.
