Mad Max: Fury Road (2015)

If video is not shown correctly, you can watch it here. Video contains some mild spoilers.

Mad Max: Fury Road was pretty much what I expected it to be. Trailer told what kind of movie this was. It was Mad Max updated to this day and age with everything bad of this day and age. Everything was bigger and action was over the top. Good ideas were buried under over the top action. Everything which made Mad Max 2 so good was forgotten. Everything people remember from it was given steroids.

I will watch Mad Max: Fury Road again. It might not be as stupid as I let you believe in the video. Positive reviews have praised things I thought were stupid. There is lot of action and it is brutal and "cool". There were few interesting twists. I wanted to know more about the world and how it worked. Immortan Joe's cult wasn't explained at all. His solders thought they were going to Valhalla and reborn. I wanted to learn more about that.

Bullet Farm or Gas Town weren't explained at all. We saw their weird leaders and that was it. There were two desert gang which weren't given any history or told who they were. Over the top action was more important. I have nothing against over the top action if everything else works. Usually over the top action tries to hide flaws of the script. This seems to be the case with Mad Max: Fury Road.

I kind of understand the hype but I don't understand why almost everyone seem to like Mad Max: Fury Road. It is good if you want brutal over the top action movie. There is just little beyond that.

If you liked the video you can find more videos from here.
