In the scene where Atom is about to enter the ring before fighting Zeus, Hugh Jackman (who has made public before his admiration for boxer Manny Pacquiao), was seen carrying a case for Atom's remote control (at 1:40:34 & 1:43:50). On that box was a sticker of the Philippine flag, the country where Pacquiao was born. (Another view of the case is at 1:20:43 just before Atom's fight with Twin Cities.) See more »

Great Movie. Perfect Match of emotions, Robo-fight(very Importantly not over done) and some comic scenes.
I had been waiting to see this movie for a long time, saw it today and it was worth all the wait.
The move has a perfect blend of emotions, Robo-fight(very Importantly not over done) and some comic scenes, what else do you want?
For me the robot fighting was great. Have been following Huge Jackman's movies off late and all have them have been good including this one. But apart from all of that the movie has an embedded message that there are things that sometimes you can not handle or overlook when you have other priorities but you can always make things right, it may be hard but it can be done.
The kid Dakota Goyo did a good job as well.
So I would say go out there and see the movie, worth every penny that you will spend for the ticket.
