4.0 out of 5 stars Damn good show !, September 14, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Real Steel (Amazon Instant Video)
A surpisingly good movie.
I've never much cared for boxing movies, like the Rocky movies, but that was mostly due to the bad acting and actors in those movies.
This movie is something different.
It's not just about the sport of robot boxing.
Hugh was great in it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great flik for what it's supposed to be. And Free with a Prime account !, September 4, 2014
Good movie, especially for free on Prime. Lots of great action scenes, particularly the fight scenes on the cliff sides hanging from ropes. Some really great scenery there. The acting is exactly what it was meant to be - real life comic book stuff. I've watched this movie more times than I know. It's one of those fliks you can watch over and over again if you like action movies.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not a bad movie, just not well thought out, August 7, 2014
Different venue and story, but I saw the Hunger Games. So similar in so many ways. The girl even looks likes J. law. Not a bad movie, just not well thought out. Does a five cast system really resonate with any of us as actually being viable? No way in hell. Human beings are too DIVERGENT to ever swallow such a system for even a week. I'm a big fan of sci-fi and fantasy but it has to believable sci-fi or fantasy. The Hunger Games is much more believable. Subjugated slavery vs. voluntary.

1.0 out of 5 stars ... thought the first Planet of the apes movie was stupid. If chimps, July 27, 2014
Even as a kid I thought the first Planet of the apes movie was stupid. If chimps, apes, monkeys, ever got so smart wouldn't they be human? Or at least a lot closer to us in appearance? Isn't that what we came from? JUST NOT BELIEVABLE to my mind.
Sci-fi has to at least be believable and the whole concept of monkeys of any stripe being smarter than humans if plain RIDICULOUS.

1.0 out of 5 stars What an awful show, even for 2006, June 25, 2014
Really cheesy with really bad acting. Reminded me of one those terrible B- movies that play late night on cable Tv.

1.0 out of 5 stars Worst sci fi show, June 21, 2014
This show is a joke. The aliens are pathetic. They're all human like bipeds with nothing more than different coloring.
No real alien will look anything like humans. Ask any scientist. Even worse, all the so called aliens act exactly like human beings do as well. Horrid attempt at sci-fi. Horrid writing, Horrid acting. Horrid scenery. Just plain Horrid.

1.0 out of 5 stars He's a perfect example of why everyone hates cops, June 21, 2014
Hammers every suspect as if they're guilty. Does he ever go back and apologize to all of the people he insulted who were innocent?
Perfect example of cops and why we all hate them.

1.0 out of 5 stars Scientifically there is so much wrong with this series it's almost laughable as science fiction., June 19, 2014
"There's no cockpits." Says a colonial fleet wing commander.
Duh, they're machines, they don't need a cockpit. And this from the pilot movie.
Loved how they never bothered to explain how their FTL jump drives worked.

4.0 out of 5 stars Best Costner movie, June 8, 2014
I like a lot of his movies, but I really think this one is his best.
The whole CIA absent daddy thing is an excuse that translates to real life so easily. Divorced dads don't need to be CIA agents to identify with how it feels to be separated from your kid or kids. It's so hard and so easy to distance yourself from your kid and ex-wife. You want to see your kid(s), but it can hurt so much to see your ex having all the time with them that you don't, especially when they're seeing some other man. The longer you're away, the harder it is to get back. Most dads don't even try after a few years. They just feel left out of it altogether. I know this all too well from the kids point of view and the dads as well. Divorce or separation for whatever reason can be a real bitch.
Loved the scene where he danced with his daughter.

1.0 out of 5 stars Watched it for FREE but still want my wasted time back., May 30, 2014
I can't believe this crap was ever made, It wasn't funny, it wasn't entertaining, what it WAS was a waste of my time.
