Real Steel

This movie is my 3 year old son's absolute favourite movie. His little face lit up when we collected it from the post office and he has watched it every single day since.

Must see

Beautiful story line.The whole family will love it!

One of the best!!!!!!

Really enjoyed this one. Some action, love, family and values. Definetely a all in one for the whole family.

Did not steal the show

A light and sometimes weak story. The kids will love it though. Great effects and that's about it.

Absolutely Brilliant

Powerful and moving movie. Hugh Jackman and Dakota Goyo bring this father-son movie to life with brilliant acting. And the special effects are out of this world. It is a perfect film for a family movie night. Filled with drama, comedy and alot of real steel action that keeps you on the edge of your seat. It's the type of film you could watch over and over.
