Editorial Reviews

With awesome weaponry and big-hearted style, NBA superstar Shaquille O'Neal unleases a "Shaq Attack" of heroics and humor in this jovial action/adventure based on the popular DC Comics characters.

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 makes a good "super" hero, though he doesn't actually have any super powers. It's about a person of humble origins (his uncle runs a junk yard) who fashions a sort of armor and helps out those who can't help themselves. He has a motorcycle and hides it in the cleverly disguised junk yard.
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.

I have not seen the DVD but I do own the VHS. Transferring my review from there with a few updates and modifications. Still stands.

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.

I saw this in theaters... I was the only one in there but I saw it in theaters. Haha! It is what it is but that's what makes it so good. Shaq and Judd Nelson are weapons specialist in the Army, Judd Nelson sees how much this could make his career and hurts one of his team members. Shaq testifies against Him at his Court Marshall and leaves the service for a normal life. BUT, Judd Nelson is trying to sell this technology to other country's so Shaq creates an armor, with help from his injured female friend from the Army and his Uncle. To become the Man of "Steel" to protect the world from the weapon he helped create from falling in the wrong hands. It's a good family movie that everyone can enjoy.

I love the 'Steel' comics and even though this film isn't 100% faithful, it was still fun. Don't get me wrong. It's terrible. But it's so good-hearted, I found it endearing. It's like watching one of the 'Ernest' movies. Show it to your elementary-age children. I'm sure they'll like it. For Superman fans, I must say this film is better than 'Superman IV' and script-wise, even better than 'Supergirl' though with a much lower budget.

I only rented this film because of episode #125 of "How Did This Get Made" podcast on earwolf.com . I'm posting this review before listening to it. I'm surprised how many people say this is a good film. It's not the worst film, but certainly not a good film in my opinion. It serves a purpose of showing how far television content has come since this was made in 1996. I really thought this was made for television until I researched it was released in theaters on a budget of 16 million. An episode of Arrow or Flash is so much better put together then this 90 minute film. But I did respect this was made by the same people responsible for making "Alien Nation".

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.
