Been in and out of production for a few years now, but it's FINALLY got a release date and finally a proper trailer. It looks absolutely mental and I'm not familiar with the original films at all, but really excited for this!

Looks like they've been heavily inspired by the 2nd and 3rd films from the original set.
I'm a little concerned it's going to be too jmuch action and weak plot/characters right now.

This was INSANE! Pretty much from start to finish. Not usually a fan of the violent, post apocalyptic, free world sort of stuff (usually they lack substance and just use violence for the sake of violence) but in this they used it well and used it to it's advantage.

Often OTT, but not too off putting and a surprising amount of plot and purpose to the story! Highly recommended!

Also a VISUAL TREAT. So aesthetically pleasing. Stunning shots all throughout!

Fantastic. Worked on so many levels. Feminist banger. Tom , Nick and Charlize were all outstanding.

Enjoyed it the cast were good the dialogue minimal. All about the action and design really backed up with special effects.

Not exactly heart-warming though and not much on banter. 6/10

Absolutely LOVED this. Visually stunning and entertaining throughout. Lets face it though, based on the plot, this should have been called Mad Furiosa, especially since Charlize stole the show

I think generally speaking people need to calm down a bit with this one. It's very good but repeated viewings and time will highlight it's weaknesses.

For example Tom Hardy/Max - I didn't think he was anywhere near as good as Gibson in the role (and it is, frankly, impossible not to make comparisons). He lacked presence and it could easily have been a different character (Max Rockatansky Jr? I could buy that). There was virtually zero character arc for him too and the film needed to decide whether we should have a back story or not rather than some half hearted attempt at it. Yeah, he softened mildly over the 2 hours but that was it.
The script was poor and the plot was almost non existent and worse still it was really predictable all the way through the film.
I did like the so-called 'feminist agenda' even if it was rather thinly veiled but they spoiled it a bit by having the wives a bit too much like supermodels.
It's a tad overlong and sags a little during any scenes that aren't action based.

On the plus side however, the cinematography and production design are exceptional and I can see Oscar talk at some point but it'll fail due to genre prejudices. The costume designer also deserves recognition for exemplary work.
Charlize Theron steals the show throughout the movie and the action sequences are among the very best committed to celluloid particularly with almost no CGI use.


All in all a fabulous popcorn/boozy night in movie that I will watch again and for sure, but not too often. Better than the third and maybe the 1st, but not the 2nd.

Visually good but on the whole I didn't really 'get' it. Too much action and not enough plot/dialogue and I didn't know what was going on all the time. Don't entirely see what all the hype is about from critics. laugh.gif

It was OK but not something I'd choose to watch a second time.

I loved this, saw it yesterday and it was absolutely fantastic! Easily one of my favourites of the year so far wub.gif
Charlize steals the show and the whole cast is amazing. The visual effects are beautiful and the plot was also great wub.gif
