Max Steel

Try hard and you might remember this late-'90s G.I. Joe knock-off toy from Mattel. Try even harder and you might recall the animated TV spin-off that ran from 2000 to 2002. However, this live-action movie is based on the 2013 Disney XD reboot of that old series. It stars Ben Winchell (of the Disney series "A.N.T. Farm") as a teenager who bonds with an alien contraption and fights extraterrestrial monsters as the "Tachyon Unlimited Radiant Bio-Optimized" energy-charged superhero Max Steel. Taylor Lautner was gonna star in this, but he dropped out to appear in the Hasbro-based toy movie Stretch Armstrong. (Superior career movie, there, Tay-tay.) 92 minutes PG-13.
