A gritty, white-knuckle, action ride set in the near-future, where the sport of boxing has gone hi-tech.
Charlie Kenton (Hugh Jackman) is a washed-up fighter who lost his chance at a title when 2000-pound, 8-foot-tall steel robots took over the ring. Now nothing but a small-time promoter, Charlie earns just enough money piecing together low-end bots from scrap metal to get from one underground boxing venue to the next.
When Charlie hits rock bottom, he reluctantly teams up with his estranged son Max (Dakota Goyo) to build and train a championship contender. As the stakes in the brutal, no-holds-barred arena are raised, Charlie and Max, against all odds, get one last shot at a comeback.
i can't believe this movie is so highly rated. terrible....and hugh jackman was the worst offender here...poor acting...loved the dancing robot though.
my expectations were low but there was action, comedy and a heartwarming reunion.
great movie my 9 yr old son loved it as well has watched it 4 times so far
