Max Da Costa was the main character and protagonist of the movie. Born into poverty and raised as a foster child with no parents, he grew up with a significant felony record and wishes to rectify his situation by getting a job.

He hasn't always played by the rules. As a result, he's spent a good chunk of his 36 years locked up. Nobody, including himself, expected much of the orphan who grew up on the streets in the sprawling shantytowns of 22nd-century Los Angeles. But now Max is committed to playing it straight in spite of his endlessly routine existence as an assembly line worker at an Armadyne plant. That is until one day something goes awry, and consequences out of Max's control once again test his resolve to stay on the right side of the law.[1]




- Max has the same initials as the actor who plays him, Matt Damon.
