I had to look twice being as it's the internet, to make sure there was only one R in fury...
It appears to be Road Warrior with more explosions and amazons. I'm guessing it'll suck. If the best-paid screenwriters in the world are truly incapable of anything but slapping new tread on old carcasses, perhaps Hollywood really is just done here. We need a new source of entertainment.
Have to admit, it looks better than I'd hoped. I'm sure there's plenty of CG involved, but it appears they have plenty of practical affects to keep my interest.But. Not. One. Colander? WTF?
Joel,It's not a psychological suspense thriller that meditates on human weakness and man's inhumanity to man; it's a summer action movie. Like Eleanor Ringel said about James Bond flicks as far back as the '80s, it's like going to the zoo: Either you're happy to see the giraffes again or you're not.The challenge for action movie directors these days is to make movies that people still want to come in and see on the huge screen rather than just wait and watch it on the 48" Sony home theater. (Frankly, I can't see watching anything other than big-screen KA-POW! outside of the house anymore.)
I think it looks pretty good. I was nervous when I heard they were doing a remake/reboot. At least that didn't put Jonah Hill or Owen Wilson in it and make it a comedy.
It just won't be the same without Gibson and Spence in it.
As long as some of the fight scenes involve real live people, I'm in.Btw, if you haven't seen it, Edge of Tomorrow is much better than a Tom Cruise movie with no beach volleyball has a right to be. Just close your eyes and pretend for the "military" scenes.
Either you're happy to see the giraffes again or you're not.Depends on how you feel about giraffes. (Hannelore has terrible OCD....)make sure there was only one R in fury...Hah! I thought the same thing. It'll probably suck and still be fun.
Please no man-made global warming sub-plot. I like to watch my carnage with the absolute minimum of PC thank you.Gerry
So it looks like Mr. Miller has added Mad Maxine.Uber-Cool!
Just watched it again and the badass lady truck driver with a spanner for an arm appears to be loading a big bore break top revolver in one scene. Very cool. (both the spanner arm and the break-top)However, they got one thing glaringly wrong, the scene with the ammo between a woman's legs shows .22lr. There is no way any .22lr would make it through the apocalypse, hell, it can't make it through the US electing a black president!
Or put Nicholas Cage in it.
Joseph: .22lr will be the new gold standard.You could buy a slave with each of those.
He lives now . . . only in my memory.
We can forgive them a great deal since Hugh Keays-Byrne is cast in it.
McThag, that's good news. But I'd preorder tickets and the Blu-Ray for a couple scenes from Vernon Wells....
If we're going to go for the "character died in a Mad Max head-on" hat trick we're going to need Angry Anderson too!
