So when a few of my facebook friends said they saw it and it was rubbish I was shocked, all my expectations had just been flushed down the toilet and I was now starting to doubt if my own thoughts of greatness would be tarnished, well luckily for me they were wrong! This movie is Amazing, Fact!
The Special Effects are awesome - the smoothness of the CGI working with the robotics of these impressive fighting machines completely steal the show and the best thing is, it more than imaginable that in 20 years we could easily be taking seats at the RBC World Championship bouts ourselves.
Jackman is brilliant, an arse of a dad at the start but as expected he warms up gradually throughout the movie but its the performance of the kid, played by Dakota Goyo who steals the show. He's brilliant. From the first encounter he's got Jackmans character totally sussed and the "flair" shown at the battles with the "shadow function" dancing with Atom are real scene stealer's.
The Robots are somewhat human and although just a barrel of bolts manage to define their own characters throughout which really bought some depth to them, very impressed.
One of my favourite movies all year.
