Justice. Safe streets. Payback. Metallurgist John Henry Irons (O'Neal) vows to claim them all when a renegade military reject (Judd Nelson) puts new superweapons in dangerous hands. Helped by an electronics wiz (Annabeth Gish) and an imaginative scrap metal worker (Richard Roundtree), Irons becomes Steel. Wearing body armor, wielding a fearsome electrohammer and riding a gadget-packed motorcycle, he's ready to wage war...if he can fix the untimely glitches in his untested gear. "You all be cool now," the good-guy hero tells two crime victims he rescues. There'll be a lot of thrillin' before Steel himself can start chillin.'

Shaq isn't really much of an actor, but his humanity and largesse shine through. He is so nice you can't resist liking him. The story is a little thin and the special effects are not too special, but it is a heartwarming, almost convincing story with a feel good vibe and well worth watching. It has little to upset youngsters. It's very kid-friendly, but also satisfying for adults.
Four stars might be a little high in some people's views, but this is not a critical masterpiece, just a pleasant romp with a big heart to match it's big hero.
This was a solid movie. Too much garbage comes out today that is "critically acclaimed." With $16 million they did a nice job with the sets, filming of action sequences, and special effects to make this movie far more than watchable. A little chessey or even corny at times but VERY entertaining. There are solid moral lessons that are taught here that the youth of today need to see, understand, and embrace.
Shaq's acting, contrary to popular opinion, is pretty good. he's at least as good as Jordan in "Space Jam."
It's very easy to root for STEEL. A man's man.
Kids, especially young black kids, need to see strong black men take control of their lives and make a positive and lasting impact on their families and their communities. Most of the people who reviewed the VHS movie here on Amazon.com probably just don't care about that aspect of it. Consider that if and when you review.
Buy it or borrow it. It's nice to own a movie that has has a true Good Guy/HERO who whips the bad guys in the end.
Bunk to all the naysayers. See it for yourself.
Despite this film being a mess. It was nice to see Shaquille O'Neal,Annabeth Gish of "Brotherhood" and "The X-Files",Judd Nelson,Charles Naper,Kevin Grevioux of "Underworld",Hill Harper, and Rick Worthy of "The Man In The High Castle" and "Battlestar Galactica" in it. Seriously, Kevin's character was played serious but his death scene was funny.She wasn't given much to work with. But Irma P. Hall's performance did add some family wholeness to this film as the grandma.
I'll remember this as a standard for bad DC films if the new Batman versus Superman film is bad when it releases in 2016. Have to thank Paul Scheer and everyone involved with "How Did This Get Made" for recommending this film to see to learn how bad DC films can be.

I watched this movie a few times as a teenager and I enjoyed it everytime. It may not live up to today's comic book movies or Tim Burton's Batmans, but it is way better than Batman... Read morePublished 23 days ago by Jeremy
