IF condition is not working for string values

HI i am trying to apply some conditions on string columns but i am getting wrong results 

these are the conditions i am applying on measures

1- IF(CONTAINSSTRING(MAX('Cynoteck (Performance)'[Value - string]),"Review"),"Review Needed","Not")

2- Review Needed = IF(MAX('Cynoteck (Performance)'[Value - string])="Review","Review Needed","Review Not")

In both the case i am geeting output as "Review not" & "Not"whereas there are values inside [value-string ] column which are = "Review" i am unable to understand why i am geeting wrong output

@Ayush_tiwari08 - try this DAX 

Review Needed = IF(COUNTX(FILTER(Cynoteck,CONTAINSSTRING(Cynoteck[Performance],"Review")),Cynoteck[Performance])>0,"Review Needed","Review Not")

OR

Review Needed 2 = if(CALCULATE(Count(Cynoteck[Performance]),CONTAINSSTRING(Cynoteck[Performance], "Review"))>0, "Review Needed", "Review Not")

@Ayush_tiwari08 Sorry, having trouble following, can you post sample data as text and expected output?
Not really enough information to go on, please first check if your issue is a common issue listed here: https://community.powerbi.com/t5/Community-Blog/Before-You-Post-Read-This/ba-p/1116882

Also, please see this post regarding How to Get Your Question Answered Quickly: https://community.powerbi.com/t5/Community-Blog/How-to-Get-Your-Question-Answered-Quickly/ba-p/38490

The most important parts are:
1. Sample data as text, use the table tool in the editing bar
2. Expected output from sample data
3. Explanation in words of how to get from 1. to 2.
