    reminds me of a Twilight Zone ep. Boxing had been outlawed due to human injury, so robots replaced humans. One robo boxing manager disguised himself as his damaged bot so he could fight to earn money to fix the broken bot.

    "Rockem' Sockem' Robots - The Movie" would be a more fitting title.

    I so wish this movie was actually named that. That would have made it awesome just for novelty sake.

    This movie looks like something I would have loved when I was a kid, but I have to wonder how much of an actual story there really is behind the concept, though. Who knows, maybe it'll be a decent popcorn flick.

    Looks to be a cool movie, I love me some robots and the fighting looks pretty cool.

    I hope that this movie turns out well, but without any life in peril, it doesn't seem interesting to me. At least with RobotJox there were pilots inside that got hurt or even killed during the fighting. With Transformers the robots are alive and they get hurt and can die when fighting. But with Real Steel, the only thing at stake seems to be the money that it would take to repair the robots. Where's the danger? Where's the drama?

    Could be a fun, obviously terrible, but fun popcorn flick.

    Both Real Steel and the Twilight Zone episode are based off the same short story.

    The trailer didn't really tell us much except there are robots fighting and Hugh Jackman. I'll keep my eye on it.....hopefully it turns out to be good.

    EDIT - found this too...it explains a lot more

    I remember seeing this in the theater and thinking how it was cool and kinda crap at the same time.

    It simultaneously looks like the stupidest and coolest thing I have ever seen.
    Can't wait.

    So pretty much, this movie is that Battle Bots show just taken to the extreme?

    Wow, that looks terrible. Maybe for the graphics but the story has to be weak.

    I don't think this is a movie you go see for story.

    I mean, how could you possibly?
