We talk to Real Steel director Shawn Levy about the challenges of making a film about robot boxing and the DVD release of his latest film.
It might seem hard to believe that the guy who made the remakes of Cheaper by the Dozen and The Pink Panther got something incredibly right, but he honestly knocks his latest film, Real Steel, out of the park. Shawn Levy gets right what Michael Bay has gotten wrong over the course of three straight Transformers films.

Most importantly, Levy and his team of writers keep things simple by applying the standard sports movie template to a film about robots beating the snot out of each other.

It was also attended by a guy best known for playing a really pissed off Canadian (despite being Australian): Hugh Jackman.
