  • Renton47's rating of the film Steel

    It would be easy to focus on everything bad about this non-committal hero flick which seems to be so generalised that it begins to resemble the bland junk-yard on-screen. But anyway that would be to overlook the endearing optimism of this screen equivalent of ghetto Batman which swaps the nihilism of those films with an armed-wheelchair shooting missiles at the military-industrial complex.
