By making it both a "kid's movie" and a "Transformers"-style FX film for nerds who remember playing "Rock 'Em Sock 'Em Robots", they double the market share.

If it were just a kid's movie, it'd make $40M. If it were a blood-and-guts FX fantasy, it might make $100+M. By doing both, it might not make for a better movie, but it'll probably make for $150+M. Which is all they care about.
Wikipedia sez Real Steel is based off a 1950s short story, not RockemSockemRobots. Make of that what you will.
