Well that wasn’t the Max Steel I remember. I used to watch Max Steel as a kid and I even had my own action figure. The things I did to that action figure should not be repeated. I suppose it makes sense that there would eventually be a movie made of this. Nostalgia is pretty much nonexistent here since it’s not what I remember so this is just a generic Sci-Fi action movie. It’s cheesy, it’s silly but that didn’t really come as much of a surprise. This was always meant for a younger audience so they’ll probably not care as much. I’m not quite sold on the actor playing Max here, Ben Winchell, so we’ll just have to wait and see. It won’t be that long, however, as Max Steel releases October 21st, 2016.
A divorced man named Elliot (Joel Kinnaman) tries to reconnect with his two sons, Bradley (Tom Holland) and Caleb (Percy Hynes White), during a hunting trip in the wilderness, but the brothers realize that they might not be able to trust their father when a fierce snowstorm strands all of them in a deserted cabin.
