Movie Review – Max Steel
Max is a teenager who has an energy problem. Every time he’s near electronics (or not) they go on the fritz. He can’t even get close to the girl he likes because of it. Steel is a small Symbiote-type robotic being who feeds off Max’s excess energy. Together, they form Max Steel.
What I liked about this movie: some of the computer animation was stellar. However, a lot of it reminded me of a B-movie from the 80’s. I also liked the back and forth banter between Max and Steel.
Also, the beginning of the movie was a confusing jumble. At least it came together in the ending. But the defeat of the bad guy was typical and unimaginative.
If you like super-hero movies, give this one a try. But don’t expect the level of the current mainstream movies.
My rating 3.2 out of 5
Andrea R. Cooper writes fantasy, paranormal, historical and romantic suspense.
Her favorite childhood memories revolved around creating vibrant characters for her friends, and then acting out their adventures. Inside her fantasy worlds of darkened forests, dragon-filled glades, and iced islands, nothing was banned. From the ethereal Elvin to the most maligned Vampires, all were welcome in her fictional realities, a stark contrast to her home, where the magical and mythical was forbidden.
