If you are like me, you have been waiting for some kind of screening review for George Miller's long-awaited Mad Max: Fury Road. It looks like our time has come.
Apparently, there was a screening at Warner Bros. and the people who saw it seem to like what they've seen. What we have here are several fan reactions collected from around the web via /Film. Like I said, these are purely fan reactions, and are by no means the thoughts or opinions of GeekTyrant. Here you go:
Randy from Action Figure Times:
This IS the kind of Mad Max II/The Road Warrior on steroids, go-big-or-go-home, bug-nuts crazy, toss-you-in-the-deep-end mythology and put-it-all-out-there-in-case-we-never-make-another-one Mad Max Fury Road. [...]
This movie feels like thirty years of Miller holding in passion for a world that he built so long ago, exploding on the screen. You, remember the third act of The Road Warrior, the bad-ass truck chase that is still hailed as a masterpiece of filmmaking? You do? Good.
Because that’s what this whole movie pretty much is-and it works! A chase that goes long and deep into the heart of Miller’s post-apocalyptic world, trying to get out of the Wasteland. It opens up and hardly slows down.
Kevin Craig West from Facebook:
just came from a year in advance screening of “Mad Max Fury Road”. Weird to not see Gibson as Max but Tom Hardy holds it down just fine. Great action sequences and amazing post apocalyptic vehicles and costuming with awesome makeup.
Went to a preview screening tonight of Mad Max: Fury Road… Due out in a few months and you are in for a treat…
“I can’t see anyone not liking it… There was other Aussies for sure. Nicholas hoult was fantastic too. Very action intense.
On Tom Hardy‘s accent in the film:
“not American sounding like CT, but not British. Hard to explain.”
I am super stoked for the movie to come out. The cast — Hardy, Nicholas Hoult, and Charlize Theron — is fantastic. I can’t wait to see what Miller has in store for us. If any of you out there have had a chance to see Mad Max: Fury Road, please let us know what you think. The movie is set to open in theaters on May 15th, 2015, and here's a synopsis:
MAD MAX: FURY ROAD is the fourth film of George Miller‘s Road Warrior/Mad Max franchise co-written and directed by Miller. The post-apocalyptic action film is set in the furthest reaches of our planet, in a stark desert landscape where humanity is broken, and most everyone is crazed fighting for the necessities of life.
Within this world of fire and blood exist two rebels on the run who just might be able to restore order… There’s Max (played by TOM HARDY from The Dark Knight Rises), a man of action and a man of few words, who seeks peace of mind following the loss of his wife and child in the aftermath of the chaos.
And… Furiosa (played by CHARLIZE THERON from Prometheus), a woman of action and a woman who believes her path to survival may be achieved if she can make it across the desert back to her childhood homeland.
