Thumbs up for the robot animation in Real Steel

I took my boys to see Real Steel. They liked it a lot (and are currently reenacting scenes as I write this). I thought the fight scenes were very well done, and would have liked to have seen more of the futuristic ring girl. But otherwise, terrible movie. Terrible acting (other than Kevin Durand, who I always find scary), embarrassingly bad dancing (who cast the kid?), way too long, poorly conceived futuristic world (cash and newspapers?), and lackluster robot design (rag doll faces are neither cool, nor endearing, and a robot with a rag doll face is just stupid).
