Real Steal is about robots fighting robots, some are good and some are bad. Charlie (Hugh Jackman) is a guy who fights robots. His first robot is smashed by a bull, the bull smashes the robots leg off with his horns and throws it into the crowd.
He has a boy, Max (Dakota Goyo) who is 11 and goes with him to robot fights.
Charlie orders ‘Noisy Boy’ from Japan and he can’t understand Charlie but the girl (Bailey played by Evangeline Lilly) opens up the back of his head and changes some of the wires and makes him understand English. Noisy Boys control is a screen with blue lights and a microphone that he can speak into too to control him. Noisy Boy loses his arm and head, he has purple blood.
Some robots only have remote controls like Wii Sports.
When they go to get new robot parts, Max falls off a cliff and he’s stuck on a robot hand and he’s rescued. Charlie said “I saved you” but Max says “No”, the robot saved him, so he digs up the arm and it’s a whole robot.
He digs it up and after he cleans it up with a hose, he sees that the robot is called Atom and turns it on. Max paints the name Atom on the robot with aqua paint. The girl recharges Atom, he has stitches on his face that look like a nose and a smile, and he has blue eyes. His remote control is not like Noisy Boys, he can copy Max’s movements and the dads in his fight with Zeus.
SPOILER ALERT Zeus is the strongest and baddest robot, he’s the champion robot. Atom stays alive to the end of his fight with Zeus, Zeus wins (on points) but really Atom was winning at the end.
