I have to give it more than one because my kids aged eight and ninequite liked it although the younger one did keep on saying "when issomething going to happen". The older boy was just thrilled to see thecartoon characters come to life so tended to give the film a free passwhen it came to plot and action.<br><br>I do not believe that $10m was spent on this movie if it was it musthave mostly gone on the licensing of the character because that moneyis just not on the screen. It is more like three episodes of a TV showstitched together. The pacing is atrocious the script is all over theplace. They really would have been better to have just re-shot a coupleof the cartoon scripts and stuck to what the kids liked about the show.<br><br>I will admit I am only vaguely familiar with the most recent cartoonbut did enjoy the first version which was a bright and breezy sportsand spy's type series with a fair sized cast of characters for Max tointeract with. This film is just a dull origin story that never getsgoing. I would wait until you can see it for free on TV rather than payfor it and only then if you are a fan of the character.
Well, I was completely disappointed. The only tip I can give to y'allis the movie, "Max Steel", is similar to "Power Rangers". Therefore ifyou are still into or starting to like those series, then go for it. <br><br>Otherwise if you're trying to find a good time, this will make you crytears in despair. Likewise, if you're a viewer like me who wants toexplore, you'll probably enjoy the beginning, but puke toward the end.<br><br>Here's some details into why the movie isn't a success for me:<br><br>The protagonist is arrogant<br><br>The villain is arrogant (oh... they're supposed to?)<br><br>The movie skips a lot of character build ups<br><br>Finally and most importantly... yelling solves EVERYTHING!!! Thesewould be great in books/novels, but doesn't help movie production.

Was it great, nah but it was a fun ride and it WAS NOT A REMAKE OF THECRAPPY SHAQ FILM. Max Steel was a kids series a few years back nowbeing brought to the big screen:http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2748608/?ref_=fn_al_tt_2 Shaq's film wasbased on John Henry Irons AKA Steel from DC Comics that came toprominence when the Death Of Superman run was in full swing:http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0120207/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1 The reviews thatI've read for the "racist remake!" or the "Whitewashed retelling of aBlack man's story!" are baseless and ridiculous.<br><br>Was the film Oscar worthy...Hell no it was for kids, tweens and ol Maxfanboys that liked the cartoon...Cool CGI & fun.<br><br>And to qualify, I am Black. I am 100% dedicated to what's good forBlack people and I am 100% for the truth and honesty for all ofus...Peace & love all!!!
