Overall Not Bad!
When I decided to watch a movie, I wanted one I only heard about and researched. I saw the trailer, and I was excited. Max Steel was the cartoon I got hooked on during a Netflix search and binge. It was good 26 episodes for the first season, and I can’t wait for the second yell. When I watched, I also thought that the name sounded similar. Come to find out that it was a cartoon in the 90s. I watched it too, but I enjoyed this origin story a lot better in this newer version.
The movie not wildly promoted in the U.S. and not much was put out on TV. I couldn’t find it in my local theater. So, I had to wait. So, I did and here are my thoughts. I liked it. Why? Well, to be honest, I saw it with a few fast forwards to seeing if it was going to be any good. I also watched it in the day, and our home projector is going dimmer due to the life of the bulb so with a darker movie it was hard to see.
The suits reminded me of Guyver the Anime and the two low-budget movies. It made me watch the movies again, and I’m going to wait to watch the Anime this summer.
When it came to its Blu-Ray release, I watched it again in its entirety. I still liked it.
With a limited budget and set they did a decent job.
