Review

A star rating of 2 out of 5.

Former basketball star Shaquille O'Neal suits up in a metal overcoat and butts heads with street gangs armed with super-weapons in this action fantasy that's loosely based on the DC Comics superhero of the same name. As an actor, Shaq makes a great basketball player; it's a shame that he can't deliver dialogue as easily as he puts away free-throw shots. As portrayed in this movie, Steel resembles Batman kitted out by RoboCop's tailor.
