– The live action Max Steel movie has kind of come out of nowhere. The movie is based on the animated TV series and toy line and basically is a rehash of the series. While usually I would praise something for sticking to its source, in this case the original animated series is much more entertaining. To add to the confusion, this is actually the second version of Max Steel as there was a previous animated series and direct-to-video movie series before the cartoon reboot. In the movie and in the rebooted animated series, 16-year-old Max McGrath moves to a new town but runs into problems when he discovers his body generates powerful alien energy that could cause him or others to explode. However, he meets and befriends the sentient alien robot Steel, who helps Max control his powers while they work to recover Steel’s lost memories. However, the more they find, the more they discover that the aliens that Steel is a part of, may not be so friendly. If you decide to skip the movie, I do highly recommend the animated series of Max Steel which has been on Disney XD and is currently on Netflix.
– Stars Ben Winchell, Maria Bello, Ana Villafañe, Josh Brener, Andy García, Mike Doyle, and Billy Slaughter. Directed by Stewart Hendler. Rated PG-13.
