What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Max Steel is a sci-fi action movie based on a Mattel toy and an animated TV series about a boy who turns into a superhero when he teams up with a comedic alien parasite. Starring Ben Winchell as Max, the movie should appeal to tweens familiar with the brand but will likely be too light on story and action to draw in teens used to the savvier, splashier Marvel and DC movies. Violence includes chases with armed security personnel and a climactic battle in which several people are killed and one person is injured. Romance is limited to flirting, lingering looks, and one kiss between teens. Language is mostly mild insults, "what the hell," and one quickly cut-off "Fuh" sound. Max's father is dead. As in many superhero movies, the message is about the duty of a chosen, extraordinary individual to accept his new responsibility to fight evil.
