From IMDb: “The adventures of teenager Max McGrath and alien companion Steel, who must harness and combine their tremendous new powers to evolve into the turbo-charged superhero Max Steel.”

Poster Rating: C / B- / C+

Review: (#1) The first design is for a foreign market and its excessive chaos does not make the central image more interesting. It makes the whole thing more distracting and forgettable.

(#2) This is less chaotic than the first and has a lot of nice colors, but it lacks the emotional connectivity of having a human present on the design, especially a design that isn’t truly abstract. (#3) You can see the visage behind the visor, but that doesn’t improve the design, which is a closer-up view of the character, with a less rich backdrop.

Trailer Rating: B-

Review: For a film targeted at the young adult market, the trailer does an admirable job stirring up an interest in it. For adults, some may be interested by the superhero nature of the film, but beyond that, it may not be able to draw too large an audience.
