    Decent Movie

    Mad Max: Fury Road is a decent movie that takes place in an already established post-apocalyptic world. There is no concrete storyline to this movie, and the movie instead focuses on character development (though it does fall exceptionally short). Not much is said between the two main protagonists of the movie (alas through that of which appears to be mainly grunting out of Tom Hardy). The movie has intense special effects highlighting the main focus of the movie "Vehicular Combat". Great movie for plain action, but if you are looking for a movie with more of an emphasis on story and strong character development. This is not the movie for you. I gave the movie 3 stars due to special effects and continuity of the environment in place of the original movies.

    Rent or borrow before you buy

    I bought this after seeing on Facebook that friend posted they just watching it for the second time in theaters. For me seeing a film more than once in theaters makes it a must own. I was sorely disappointed after watching this film. It wasn't a bad movie but I didn't know what to expect. The action in the movie was non-stop and I think that's why people enjoyed it so much. It was pretty strange in some parts and left me scratching my head. I've seen the original mad max movies and this is nothing like those. I would recommend renting or borrowing from a friend before you make your purchase. I think Charlize Theron and Tom Hardy are great actors but I wouldn't buy this based on that alone.

    Alright, but nothing special.

    This film was definitely full of violent car chases and explosions. I would agree with every critic out there--which believe me, does NOT happen--in that this film had very little plot. Basically, it all centered around driving from one place to another with car chases between each stop. There was a tiny bit of plot, but nothing really worth calling a plot. No real gore. I would have appreciated it if the action scenes had been filmed normally instead of like someone's got their thumb pressing fast forward. Max says maybe six words the entire movie, and Furiosa is a shallow character too, so you didn't care about either of them. It was a good brain-dump kind of movie but don't expect too much.

    Certainly, this Mad Max remix is NOT even close to how good the original Mad Max was, nor the follow-on movies such as The Road Warrior or Mad Max: Beyond Thunderdome. In this movie, the special effects were good--quite good actually. There was a lot going on, and more time could have been spent on character and back-story development which would have added a great deal. As it is, I think they tried to cram far too much into this one film, and in doing so blew it! The movie simply was two dimensional. There was a hint of a back story, and it is a shame it did not get totally fleshed out. If you can find this movie for under $10, then I say go for it.

    Any fan of the original mad max trilogy will be completely disappoint in the movie! Yes it has it's moments but Mad Max doesn't really come out as the main role! They try to relate this movie to the old series by doing the same things or similar things as the originals! Like the main bad guy in the movie sounds exactly like the leader of the bad guys in The Road Warrior movie! Why I don't know why! They really should have made this Fury Road and left Mad Max alone cause to me he seemed like an under used character! After all love him or hate him MAD MAX is and always will be Mel Gibson! The movie is worth a watch but to me it was really disappointing! :0(

    I give the Mad Max BR five stars, but I was one of the suckers who preordered the Steelbook collectors edition, only to wait around in the store. And wait. And wait. And wait. When I was finally fed up and got up to leave, someone came and told me they didn't manufacture enough, and stores only got a few copies, but not enough. So they gave me a gift card to go get this version. Again, great product. But not what I ordered or paid for. This is the second time this has happened to me, the first with the Guardians of the Galaxy Steelbook. Well Best Buy, there will not be a third.

    I did not see this in the theater. I thought it would be a disappointment. I also did not buy this movie when it first went on sale. I waited until it was reduced to a very low sale price. Just watched it yesterday and I was disappointed. Reviews and other people praised this movie as being better than the original series with Mel Gibson. I don't see it. Yes there is plenty of action. There is also some plot and some character development. But it just all seemed like too much of the same thing and took way too long to finish.

    I like this series, especially the Road Warrior. The people who made this movie wanted to show us that the future is run by vulgar, rapacious cretins who alienate everyone below them. The kind of people you would kill in their sleep at the first chance, no matter how non-violent a person you are. Still liked parts of the movie, but you have to wade through lots of dreck along the way. If you edited out about 20 to 30 minutes, you would have a good movie. I would only recommend this movie to someone who really liked the franchise.

    I saw the movie on theaters and really enjoyed, so I was waiting for it to be available, and when I saw the opportunity of the bargain during the Black Friday ($8 instead of $24 for the BluRay/DVD combo!), I didn't think about it and got it. However, it was very disappointing to receive instead the BluRay version (with no Digital version)... and even worse to go to the store and find out BestBuy couldn't fix their error and exchange it for the right one since the movie is out of stock there. That's the reason for the low rate.

    If you are a fan of the Mad Max movies, you'll enjoy this one. The visuals are more modern and dramatic. As for a storyline and plot, it's just like the others, extremely basic. There's not much in the way of original thinking here. The director of the original three movies directed this one as well. So there was no deviation from the basic chemistry of the stories. I guess they figured... if it ain't broken, don't fix it. If you are looking for a typical, none thinking, guy movie, this one is it.

    This movie did have a lot of action. I will give it that. There was also a lot of armored fast cars driving through the sand. The vehicles were interesting. They built the out of classics stacked on top of each other, ie a double 57 cadilac. There was something about the special effects. I didn't think they were very realistic. And the story was rather odd. All in all it would definitely be a good movie to rent but I doubt I will watch it very often after buying it.

    everybody's a critic--right? obviously this is a remake of the original with mel Gibson. With computer graphics being what they are it was way more impressive. BUT--after awhile it was like action overload kinda like the freeway scene in the matrix series X 10. I found myself losing interest because it just went on and on. I think this is one of those films where you have to decide for yourself. try to pick it up as a bargain buy. just my opinion.

    Best Mad Max since the original movie

    It takes a certain mind set to sit through any of the Mad Max movies. The ritualistic, hedonistic portrayal of life after Max's devastation can be alternately gory and corny. Unfortunately the middle movies in the series were weak, but the bookends show more heart. I thought the latest story line held more meaning, showed strong characters and had pretty good acting performances. Good "date" movie if both your ideas of fun is a good cage match.

    I got this title because it had rave reviews and was highly recommended as a movie to have in one's collection to enjoy a home theater experience and great surround sound, which is what I was looking for. Although I agree that the sound is quite good (although not as good as, say, Hacksaw Ridge or Spectre, in my view), I guess this genre is not for me and I didn't like the movie.

    Mad Max: Fury Road's 3D Blu-ray

    To keep this short and sweet, I thought the movie was just OK. Weak on plot/story, but plenty of explosions, crashes and mutilated bodies! The picture quality was decent, the sound stage was very immersive (I have a 9.2 speaker set up) and the 3D was not as good as I had expected. Reviews about the 3D was promising, but I thought "meh" after watching Mad Max: Fury Road's 3D Blu-ray version.

    I bought this expecting a kind of collectors edition, and I love the movie but the packaging is sloppy as heck. The blue portion of the case has holes cut out in the back so parts of the disc are only protected by the clear plastic around the paper insert. Pretty unhappy. The only reason I would recommend this is cause it's a great movie

    The movie itself is great. Charlize gives an outstanding performance. The case (inside) however, was destroyed. Little upset that a member of the Best Buy team player soccer with the case or something. But back to the movie, outstanding, practical action. By far the best action movie of 2015. If you're looking for a fun movie, check this one out!

    I went into this movie thinking it would be an action movie with a lot of story elements. The movie doesn't have much of a story, at least not openly talked about, but it does show a futuristic world in a great way. I hadn't watched any of the previous movies in the franchise so didn't know what to expect but this movie was worth watching.

    Exciting but not what I was hoping for

    I was a big Mad Max fan back in the day and was hoping for the same experience. This one starts out surprisingly violent and put a couple people I was watching it with back in their seats. If you give it time it gets better, but there are lots of story line holes. It is, however, a major adrenaline rush if you're just looking for action.

    If your a fan of the Mad Max movies then this one you will like...but if not then you might be a little confused. It's post apocalyptic and weird, but what Mad Max movie isn't. He's a lone wolf and doesn't want Co. but reluctantly he does. Lot's of confusing action and stuff blowing up, a real guys movie....but that's just me.
