Max Steel

Critics Consensus

Bereft of characterization or even satisfying rock 'em sock 'em, Max Steel feels like futzing with an action figure without any childhood imagination.

  • A movie based on a toy should be a whole lot more fun than this.

    October 14, 2016 | Rating: .5/4 | Full Review…
  • A spectacle without the spectacle, an autumnal, amorphous blockbuster that just sits there, suspended in mid-air, as you soak in its ceaseless banality.

  • Given that the character began life as a hunk of plastic with a cool name, it's hardly surprising that writers have reshaped his biography on the fly, with all the consistency of kids playing with their toys in the backyard.

  • What's truly depressing about the whole enterprise is that Garcia and Bello were pulled into it. Yes, actors love to work and bills need to be paid, but perhaps a fund could be started to spare talented thespians this sort of career embarrassment.

  • While the proverbial "'90s kids" may get a nostalgic kick out of seeing their old action figures in the flesh, novices are likely to be bored by a movie that feels more like a failed pilot for a TV show.

    October 14, 2016 | Full Review…
  • A half-baked, time-wasting curtain-raiser for a superhero franchise that is never, ever going to happen.

    This was a movie with good promise that came out lame. Casting was probably the best part of this film. It was a little quirky and funny at times though.

    Unfortunately, as four Transformers movies weren't enough, once again we are met in a world where a mysterious alien named Steel who is closely stuck together with a 16-year old named Max McGrath. Sounds completely interesting right? Until they merge together, which in this case, that's where they stop bringing the originality bag in action, instead forcing us to deal with whatever's on screen and leave with minor disappointment and a big, major meh. Pass on this one while you can.
