Movie Thoughts: Mad Max - Fury Road

So, my friend Chris and I watched this Thursday night and I have to say meh, I am not sure why people are all hyped about this movie. It was ok, but it was the same gags over and over, the plot was very weak, the acting wasn't even that great....I just expected more from Frank Miller, I have read his comics, graphic novels and books as well as his movies and wow, he must be slipping in his old age.

If you have not went to see it, save it for a matinee, DVD rental from Red Box or a discount movie theatre. I think that is what is is really worth, the movie did have lots of eye candy with crazy vehicles and situations, it just went over the top in repeating the same thing. Yea, Road Warrior was the same way but there were way points and plot pacing that was much better than this go round. I hope for better things with the next two movies.

  1. Yeah, I've had people trying to tell me how 'deep' it was but to my eyes it was mostly well-done eye candy. The 'culture' of the bad guys was cool... and I don't think it's a 'bad' movie... but, as usual, some people get really excited about a thing and blow it all out of proportion.
