Max Steel is what happens when the sole rationale for your film is 'People used to like this toy.'

Isn't just ugly, but it's boring, and it's a shame considering the concept at least has potential.

Max Steel demonstrates a lack of absolute interest towards the public that should be directed. [Full review in Spanish]

Max Steel moves in the territories of mediocrity due to irregularities in editing, null creativity to orchestrate entertaining action sequences and exaggerated use of digital effects. [Full review in Spanish]
December 29, 2016
An artificial and blatant production that lacks of transcendence, which could not even be cataloged as a curiosity. [Full review in Spanish]

Not all toy marketing treatments disguised as movies are terrible; some, such as Transformers, are merely too loud and strident. But few have this movie's lack of imagination, humourlessness and corpse-like pacing.

This I Was a Teenage Iron Man wannabe is inept at every level.
October 20, 2016
The forgettable Max Steels offers a meandering and lifeless superhero origin story.

Not an abortion. Just a miscarriage.

I couldn't find a single thing to enjoy here.

Kids are probably better off playing with the action figures and making up their own stories.

Toy-based superhero action movie is forgettable.

Moviegoers suffering from superhero fatigue should especially avoid Max Steel, a film that embodies the worst of what the genre has to offer.

Even bored adolescent boys are unlikely to muster any enthusiasm for this chintzy reboot of the hybrid hero.
October 14, 2016
A movie based on a toy should be a whole lot more fun than this.

A spectacle without the spectacle, an autumnal, amorphous blockbuster that just sits there, suspended in mid-air, as you soak in its ceaseless banality.
Top Critic
October 14, 2016
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.
October 14, 2016
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
A half-baked, time-wasting curtain-raiser for a superhero franchise that is never, ever going to happen.
