I guess I have a short memory because, since I didn’t read the text by /film’s Germain Lussier‘s, my first thought when I read watched this was: “Boy, they made that stupid ‘Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em Robots’ movie fast.” But it seems that the comparison has been out there since Mattel first launched that sure to be Oscar-winning film.

Anyhow, Hugh Jackman stars in what has to be the most heartfelt tale of pugilistic triumph and tragedy since “The Fighter” and the most entertaining robot fighting production since that thing that used to come on before “The Daily Show.”
