Mad Max: Fury Road – two hours of nonstop, utterly insane fantasy action


Agreed. I went with a friend and we were both utterly flummoxed at the end, genuinely wondering if we had just watched the same film that's been receiving all these rave reviews. I'm genuinely disturbed by all these people who've been to see it more than once, as I was more than ready to leave after an hour. There's no plot and no character development, so it's impossible to care about going on. It's therefore a two-hour car chase which rapidly gets tiresome. It's the worst possible combination: a stupid film which takes itself terribly seriously. It's impossible to engage your brain whilst watching it, but also impossible to enjoy it as a bit of silly fun as you can with many B movies. Oh, and the script is a total embarrassment, utterly cringeworthy. The whole thing is boring, miserable and exhausting, and the fact that so many people seem to think this is a pinnacle of filmmaking seriously disturbs me.
