Maybe I was just a little too old when the action figure and subsequent computer-animated TV series came out, but frankly, I don't really see the huge appeal here -- an extreme sports athlete gets infused with nanotechnology, essentially turning him into a barely legal Inspector Gadget with superpowers. Something tells me Paramount is betting on Lautner's tummy muscles to sell this concept to those outside the 10-year-old boy demographic.
Thanks to Ain't It Cool News for pointing out that YouTube is currently running the entire Max Steel series online. Enter the uncanny valley of severely dated computer animation, if you dare. Seriously, ReBoot has aged better than this.
