Punchy ‘Real Steel’ a ton of fun
At first glance, “Real Steel” seems like a generic sci-fi flick looking to capitalize on the success of the “Transformers” films. But just a few minutes into the robot-boxing film, you’ve already seen more heart and wit than all three “Transformers” flicks combined. While the story is predictable, Hugh Jackman is as likable as ever, and the action is seriously intense and exciting. (DVD, $29.99; Blu-ray/DVD combo, $44.99)
