07.25.12Netflix Hugh Jackman connects with his son through the futuresport of robot boxing. I think the movie works because of the successfull integration of a near-future setting with a complete by-the-numbers genre story. I very much liked how the future was not completely futuristic (except for Bing sponsoring an arena). With this subtle tweak the story managed to work on me. It's a weird feeling to watch a scene so completely ridiculous but still can't help but like it. That kind of sums up the whole movie. I think if I start to dissect it too much it'll fall apart so I'll just say that I enjoyed it and leave it at that.
