I posted this on another thread but I absolutely feel it is deserving of its own post. This film is fantastic and truly lives up to the originals and is an action flick that does not dissapoint. From the brutal cars to the chaotic wastelands George Miller brought his orginal visions to life with todays budget and expectations without CGI in a time where hollywood blockbusters sell on the biggest and baddest CGI action seqences. First of all let me be clear THIS IS MAD MAX!  I saw this film today and I watched the previous trilogy over the past two days. This is my Dad's favorite series and I took him to see the 7:30 show on Thursday. We both agree that it is by far the second best film in the series. No it doesn't quite touch Road Warrior but it blows the first film and Beyond Thunderdome out of the waters. So yes it' is that damn good! As far the people that think Max isn't the lead? You guys are smoking something because he is most definitely the lead, and he shares that lead with Imperator Furiosa and there is nothing wrong with that. Max is a lone wanderer and he always had someone who he was helping that shared a huge part with him. In this case he was helping Furiosa and the difference here was that they spent the whole time in the same vehicle as the chase was 95% of the movie. This film started with Max and it ended with Max, Imperator Furiosa was the second main lead and I do mean main. She was achieving a goal and Max tries to jack her ride and ended up helping her just like the lone wanderer he is. Selfish yes selfless, funny how that works out!

As for the whole feminism theatrical bullshit people are spreading. They were saving sex slaves.... What the hell is feminist about that? I'm a male and I likely would end up doing what Max did, what a real man did. Both Max and Furiosa did heroic things to save these women. The older women did feel superior because of their survival skills. As for the other women they were as important to Immortan Joe as oil and water is to everyone else in this world. They provide him his children and his milk... in other words without his slaves he was nothing. If you relied so much on someone I would imagine they would feel superior even if they were dominated due to how vital they are. His commodities he needed were lost and he stopped at nothing to retrieve his most prized commodies. Every villain in this series had something that they prized so heavily. So because they fought back that is considered feminism? Lmfao no wonder it took so long for slaves to be liberated, people are apparently equally stupid today as they were back then. I guess the film Selma was a loving tribute to the Black Panthers, and The Imitation Game was conclusively about homosexual equality. Which was indeed a sad part and Allan Turner was an amazing man who contributed so much to this world we live in :'(

This bullshit is so out of context and those people completely miss the point of the films and the story they are trying to portray. It has nothing to do with feminism but is in fact an action flick that is about liberating sex slaves. People are so illiterate that it is beyond ridiculous, no wonder the drop out rate is so high. I've actually heard people state that women are whores that should live on the streets. That's a hella lot of Immortan Joe's that need a kick in the nuts to learn how to treat a lady like a real man. It is apparent that a lot of people don't like change and 50 years from now people are going to look back at us as an uncivilized culture just like we look at people 150 years ago. Yes equality is important for all genders, race, and ethnics and that is a fact. Kind of funny it takes someone who is mixture of American, Canadian, Greek, and Nordic to say this and yes I am white ffs. Times change and we are all the fools of yesterday!

This film is FANTASTIC and I don't know what people are waiting for! Go see this film and it is by far the best film of this year. Star Wars suddenly has a lot to live up to, and that is one of my favorite franchise. Daredevil is also a highlight of this year! This film may very well be one of the few action flicks to win major awards.

Fun facts about Fury Road!:
- CGI is kept to a bare minimum and all these stunts are real and performed by real stuntmen
- They built 150 cars for this movie and over 80 of them were destroyed in the process of filming
-  Immortan Joe is the same actor from the original Mad Max who played Toenail
- The film doesn't take place on a set or green screen. This is a real chase in real locations. These actors went to hell and back on the roads of fury and fire
- The film was planned years ago and was planned in 1993, 1998 ( could be wrong here), 2003, 2009, and 2012. The overall plot of the film remained faithful from the beginning. The films origins and easily predates modern feminism hence why the idea of the film being pro-feminism holds no water and is laughable
- One scene took over 130 days to film
- There was only a story board and no script. George Miller was very clear and directive of his vision
- Framerates were both sped up and dropped dramatically, you could miss a lot of action with a single blink of an eye
- Yes those were real stuntmen on the poles swinging back and forth and no mannequins were used on the majors stunts. George Miller was strict on safety
- Tom Hardy is great and yes he actually was tied to the front of a speeding vehicle. The cast needs a vacation after the shit they went through
- This film is a must see for anyone who holds regards and love for the art of cinema

Definitely going to check it out. Especially after all the hype and acclaim it got.



Another funfact

Budet was around
$100.000.000 compared to
$650.000 for Mad Max 1 from 1979.

I think it is more fair to compare it to the 2nd one. The first one wasn't that great in my book.



 

Furiosa is the lead. It shows this in the trailers, the posters and also in the movie, she is the last one to show on screen from a very high position. In the beginning she bosses Mad Max around and even calls him by Fool. In the beginning he shows up like a retard and the women diminish his role. The romantic relationship that shows up during the movie is completely out of context and with the male character that this happens to. The chastity belt is completely unnecessary. The old women distrust completely the two men that show up with the girls even though they are clearly helping them. So basically the only two decent men that show up are either bossed around or are romantic. The rest are vile and maniac but ALL women are decent and correct.

Yes, the movie is great. Yes, Furiosa is a great lead, even her name is great. She is strong, confident and does the impossible to save those women. Mad Max is along for the ride and does the right thing. But there was no need for feminist agenda, they even called the author of the Vagina Monologues. Women are strong when they are strong people. It is all about being human, not man or woman. There is no need to study up what strong women are, it should be natural to see when a PERSON is strong and worthy.

what actually is wrong with a feminist agenda tbh, we have tons of male driven blockbusters where men are the smartest and strongest for decades ,meh first blockbuster to do this in forever so i have no qualms



I am apparently in the minority. While Road Warrior has the best car chase scenes in film history, I slightly prefer the original Mad Max due to the insane level of suspense and stellar acting. Going to see the new one tomorrow night. Some people at my office are saying it is the best action movie they have ever seen.

So, a feminist agenda is one where males are inferior?

Lmao are you kidding me? The chastity belts were absolutely nessacary for this film. When you leave your house you tend to always lock your door, sometimes you'll lock all your belongings in a safe. People do this because they don't want other people to steal their personal property. For Immortan Joe those girls where his property and their singular purpose were to breed HIS babies. He wanted that shit locked down tight so no one else can take that or use his property. He wouldn't have brought an army if it wasn't the most important thing to him. I DARE you to walk into a brothel and abduct all the pimps hoes and see how fast he brings his gangs after you. I'm willing to bet you'd be a dead man!

Again it was still Mad Max and the film was still his. Max is always along for the ride and helping others! This is been the case since Road Warrior, and as I said earlier the difference is they share the vehicle together and Furiosa instigated the events and was directly responsible. It is easy to see how many people would see her as the main, but it is still Max. The man without a plan was the same one to resolve the issue and conflict through his BRILLIANT plan when they turned around. I won't say the rest as not everyone has seen the movie yet. He is the hero who overcame all the problems and challenges in the film and he was the main protagonist. Furiosa was still a main character but not on the same level despite being very heroic. As for a feminist agenda.... there wasn't one. Had this movie been released in 1993 as originally planned, we wouldn't be having this conversation because no one would care. The base plot of the movie remained the same over all these years.

LMAO I would love to see these guys who keep fabricating and instigating this whole feminist bullshit joke be sent a copy of the Metroid games. Tomb Raider would be good as well, and Blood Rayne would just chop their dicks off. The ironic thing is that most of these guys that drag the feminist argument around are actually virgins who are angry that women won't even look at them. It's so pathetic to the point I can't even keep a straight face every time it's brought up. I would love to see a comedy made about this shit as it is so laughable.



Great review and pumped to see it! I was pleasantly surprised by all the hype it got and I'm sure it won't disappoint. Loved the originals.



It'll be awhile before I figure out how to do one of these. :P
