Fighting robots, future, topped with a not-so-breezy father – (young) son relationship, the movie has everything it needs to be a blockbuster. And indeed it was. People and critics both loved the movie, and it still remains one of those movies that one can watch at any time. However, with the kind of plot and concept Real Steel had, movie buffs cannot stop thinking about a sequel.
