Well this movie wasn’t exactly what I thought it was going to be but it was quite entertaining nevertheless. I have seen some of the animations which the movie was based off of and I was expecting a lot more from it but it was just so similar to the animation that it wasn’t really anything new in my opinion. Although it was entertaining.

While the story may not have been fantastic and it had a lot of holes, the cinematography was quite good. How Max would mess with energy and then transform to be in the suit was quite interesting to watch and was done well.

There weren’t really any famous actors in the movie that I was able to just look at and know who they were and there really wasn’t much hype to do with the movie unfortunately as well. I didn’t even know that it had come out yet so I was surprised when I found out that it had been released.

There isn’t terribly much to say about the movie in my opinion. If you’ve seen the TV show then it may be entertaining because all the holes you can fill in because you know from the TV show what is what. If you haven’t seen it, it is an entertaining movie and quite unique in what it does, however you will find a lot of holes in it.

Overall, would I watch it again? Probably not. For a one time watch it was perfectly fine however I wouldn’t personally watch it again.

Have you seen it? If so, what did you think?

Happy watching!
