Mad Max: Fury Road is a perfect action film. There’s your review.
Exactly 24 hours after seeing Terminator: Genisys, I saw Mad Max: Fury Road. And the differences between the masterpiece (Mad Max: Fury Road) and the average-piece (Terminator: Genisys) really separate what makes a good action film and what makes a bad action film.
Mad Max: Fury Road has a simple story, a maniac who runs a colony of survivors chases down a truck filled with his “wives” (women he’s impregnated) which leaves a trail of explosions and cars and exploding cars. That’s it.
Terminator: Genisys had a complicated story about a time machine which changed the course of events in a tale we already know and love which causes one robot to fight another robot who is actually the son of the woman who’s being protected by the first robot. See the difference?
Terminator: Genisys also spent more time on the story than it did on the action. Whereas Mad Max: Fury Road was non-stop action from start to finish. WHICH IS EXACTLY WHAT I WANTED.
Mad Max: Fury Road despite being set in a colourless desert, had some beautifully colourful shots, especially in the fight scenes. The special effects looked incredible which makes the film’s action really stand out as it was all made practically (except for a few scenes which weren’t too spectacular) and it all looked so satisfying which keeps your eyes in visual heaven for the 2 hour runtime.
The sound was stunning, the music was perfect and everything technical about the film was on point. Sure, the story was simple, but that’s a good thing because when you go to Mad Max: Fury Road to see car chases and explosions, you get car chases and explosions.
