Mysterious forces threaten our world. An unlikely origin story of a teenager, Max McGrath, becomes bonded to a strange alien entity that grants Max incredible powers to combat the forces of evil. That’s all I got…
Max Steel is supposed to be a superhero action film based on an action figure and cartoon. It worked for Transformers so why the hell not right? Directed by Stewart Hendler and written by Christopher Yost (So it had potential I guess). The film stars Ben Winchell, Ana Villafane, Josh Brener, Maria Bello, Billy Slaughter, and Andy Garcia (So sorry).
The film is based on the toy line from Mattel and is an origin story of how Max McGrath became Max Steel. Dolphin Films and Mattel Playground Productions teamed up for this film and was released by Open Road Films.
Needless to say, the film was a failure but if you were a fan of the toy and the cartoon then you may like the film. So here you go. 🙂
