Real Steel - ***
Loved it. Jackman is great. The kid is great. Evangeline Lilly is great. Loved the robot. Loved the father/son story. But I also loved the relationship between Jackman and Lilly. I think despite the fact that her screen time is rather limited, Lilly really makes the most of it. There is a lot that is said but there is a lot that's unsaid too about their relationship that I really liked. The climatic David Vs Gollialith showdown between Atom and Zeus is terrific and even at times quite moving. Especially the look on Lilly's face as they both recall the past but of course it also celebrates the relationship between Jackman and his son. It's a beautifully photographed movie too.
