    Never Too Old

    I'm a 65 year old who never plays games except solitaire. But I do watch almost any kind of movie and enjoy most every one. I do like it when games, comics and the like come to the screen because I can experience them in the form I'm used to. This movie was well done. A bit B 'ish on the delivery but not so much that it becomes boring or something you can't watch. In fact, it was fast and easy to get into. Games and comics are a way to tell our children and young adults that you should be aware of your possibilities. Though most go a little beyond the natural edge. As long as our children and young adults can parse the abnormal from the normal, the bad from the good, the hate from the love, they can grow reading and playing them. This move didn't have much of the abnormal or any of the bad or hate and stuck with the positives of normal, good and love.

    Not a Bad Adaptation

    I watched the animated series on Netflix well before this movie was announced. I was really interested in it from day one. Steel was perfect and the backstory and plot were extremely good for a series to motion picture adaptation. The liberties they took outside of the original series made sense and helped the story. Max's suit when he merdged with steel looked really rubbery and not like armor. Now the main villain's suit looked awesome but seemed cumbersome and restrictive. The elementor and final fight left a lot to be desired even for a younger audience. It's hit or miss in each category but still not a bad adaptation and a good movie for the younger crowd to enjoy. I would still recommend watching the animated series over the movie.

    I don't remember this action figure when I was a boy. The movie was boring and feels like a failed pilot for a TV show. The quality of the video presentation looks ok on Blu-ray, nothing impressive or great to write home about. I wasted good money which could have been better spent on the 3D version of Dr Strange.

    Not a bad movie. It is entertaining however it is not as good as some of the more established comic book hero movies. With that being said like the others it is laying the foundation of the beginning of this character and hopefully they will make more so you can get a better understanding of this character.

    When I saw the trailer I was reminded of Flight of the Navigator. Nothing in common with this film, but I was reminded of it - having thoroughly enjoyed that film. This film didn't disappoint me. Quite fun throughout and definitely happy I picked it up for my collection.

    After watching the preview, I thought I would purchase it because it looked like a class A movie. After watching about half of the movie I realized it was poorly written and cast. Direction was also pretty bad. Most of the good parts were already in the previews.

    I remember seeing the animated series with my son and it was pretty entertaining. The movie was not bad. A little slow and boring at first, especially if you are not familiar with the series, but then it picks up steam.
