The story was first adapted for television by Matheson as an episode of The Twilight ZoneSynopsis:Hugh Jackman plays Charlie Kenton, a washed-up fighter who lost his chance at a title when 2000-pound, 8-foot-tall steel robots took over the ring. Now nothing but a small-time promoter, Charlie earns just enough money piecing together low-end bots from scrap metal to get from one underground boxing venue to the next. When Charlie hits rock bottom, he reluctantly teams up with his estranged son Max (Dakota Goyo) to build and train a championship contender. As the stakes in the brutal, no-holds-barred arena are raised, Charlie and Max, against all odds, get one last shot at a comeback.Official site:http://steelgetsreal.com/

Wow... Why Hugh Jackman? Why? He also doesn't even remotely look like a "washed up fighter." The guy is too damn handsome for that.I see Robot Jox as more plausible than this. If your robotics is this advanced, why not duke it out with huge mechas instead of these stupid things.
