DVD/Blu-ray Release: Real Steel

January 24, 2012

We showed you the robots at Fan Expo last August, attended the Toronto premiere in September and interviewed director Shawn Levy this past weekend.  Today, Walt Disney Home Entertainment is releasing DreamWorks Pictures’ Real Steel on Blu-ray & DVD.  With thrilling scenes of robot boxing and an engaging human story, this is an exhilarating and entertaining film that doesn’t drag for a second of the running time.  We reviewed Real Steel when it opened in theatres on October 7th, our overall consensus was:

“With strong leading performances from Hugh Jackman and Dakota Goyo as well as energetic direction from Shawn Levy, Real Steel features surprisingly thrilling sequences of robot boxing and delivers a lot of fast-paced fun to a wide demographic of audiences.  ***1/4 (Out of 4)”

The Blu-ray includes a blooper reel, some deleted and extended scenes, a couple of featurettes and commentary with Shawn Levy.  Also on the disc is Second Screen technology, which gives viewers an immersive look into the production as they interact with the film through their iPad or computer.

Real Steel is 127 minutes and rated PG.
