If you get one shot, make it real.
Hollywood rolls out yet another sports underdog movie, this time with a twist. Instead of a group of misfits beating the champs, it is an ex-boxer and his estranged young son, who together build a mechanical fighting robot and guide it to victory. The real story of course is about father-son bonding and finding redemption for past transgressions. It's a crowd-pleaser that generally impressed the critics as well.
