Review of 'Real Steel'
I reluctantly went to watch this one as the trailers almost dare you to dislike it. The story seems far fetched and anachronistic till you set your foot in the hall. But once there, It’s a real revelation. With no ado, the premise of it being set in near future is spelt upfront. There are no gimmicks put in to make it overly sci-fi and you can very much relate to the scenario. The film rightly extrapolates the trajectory that video gaming is likely to take. With that being a futuristic premise, it however at heart remains a tale of emotions, relations, defeat, victory and redemption. It is also an underdog story and delights you with a grounded narrative. Very much watchable 3.5 STARS
