Storyline

Alex Mann is a top competitor for the Acceleration Games, a worldwide extreme sports competition tour. During a deadly accident, he discovers his special ability called the AMP Factor, which is the ability, in extremely dangerous situations, to suddenly be able to examine his surroundings and computate mathematically the best possible action. This makes him capable of performing complex and daring stunts to save the day that are normally impossible. This discovery vastly complicates his and his support team's lives as they find themselves facing villians like Dr. X, who want to exploit Alex's power to his own end.

User Reviews

Television animation does not get wilder.
14 January 2001 | by (London, Ontario, Canada) – See all my reviews

This series is another feather in the cap for Mainframe Entertainment. This series may not have been the first regular computer animation series to set in the present day world, but it has carved out a niche that distinguishes from worthy competitors like Max Steel.

Where as Max Steel focuses on the writing of each individual story with a loose continuity; Action Man stresses sheer kinetic action with a stricter story arc in the episodes. In doing so, you see an thrilling saga of our heroes in their war with the antagonists of the series chock full of stunning animation that is almost worthy of feature films.

Mainframe's reputation for animation excellence continues.
