CGI is on the rise...
12 May 2001 | by See all my reviews

Supposedly following in the footsteps of the computer generated shows by the Canadian Mainframe Entertainment, Max Steel makes it mark as the WB's first CGI show. Though t started out a little rough around the edges, Max Steel has improved greatly from its humble beginnings. It revolves around Josh McGrath, aka Max Steel, a young man possessing superhuman abilities. At first glance, this may look to be a children's show, but if you keep an open mind and generally enjoy cartoons, adults will like this too.
