Mad Max: Fury Road – movie review

mad-maxGrade: B

The movie starts with frenetic action and pauses only momentarily to take a breath before launching into the next epic action/chase/fight scene. If that’s what you want then you won’t be disappointed. After the Thursday opening night the user rating for this movie at Rottentomatoes stands tall at 94%. Obviously the fans of this genre are immensely satisfied.

There is next to zero story development. Even after 30 minutes into the movie it’s still a mystery as to why one group of people is running from another. On the plus side: it’s hard to have plot holes when there’s almost no plot.

The acting was a strong point — in the few scenes where it was required. I was particularly impressed with Charlize Theron. There really isn’t much to Tom Hardy’s character. All of his lines of dialog added together would fit on the back of a postage stamp. (This movie isn’t high on talking.)

My biggest gripe would be that due to the complete lack of character development I never really cared what happened to any of them.

I didn’t see it in 3D but I would hazard to guess that it would make a good 3D experience due to the almost none stop action. So far the RunPee users would agree. 88% suggest that the 3D version is worth the extra coin to see — with only 16 votes cast thus far.

Don’t miss your favorite movie moments because you have to pee or need a snack. Use the RunPee app (Android or iPhone ) whenever you go to the movies.
