Mad Max: Fury Road Looks So Goddamn Great

Mad Max: Fury Road Looks So Goddamn Great

Despite my initial cynicism, Mad Max: Fury Road just keeps chipping away with these incredible trailers to the point where I’m just at fever pitch. With a young kid, trips to the cinema are few and far between, but Mad Max: Fury Road? Day one. Absolutely no doubt. This movie just looks amazing.

If this movie sucks I’ll be so disappointed. So disappointed.

Why am I so excited? I think it’s just how inventive it all looks. The design, the characters, how everything looks. If you had told me a couple of years ago I’d be more excited about a new Mad Max movie than a new Star Wars movie I’d have called you crazy, but that’s where I’m at right now.


  • Star wars is milking the proverbial nostalgia teat, whilst mad max is organically reintroducing its amazing universe. Can’t wait.

  • I’ll probably see it just because I watch a lot of movies but I actually think it looks pretty average. I can only hope that @buzzman is right and that the character interactions lift the movie above the, what appear to be, cringe-worthy and uninspired action sequences.

    • Do yourself a favour, before you go see this, Watch Mad Max 1 and 2 for the first time or again. Mad Max 3 is not so great, but you could watch that too.

  • I feel I am missing something with this movie. the ones we normally go to the movies with are super hyped about this movie but I just feel I will be seeing it because it is expected not because it looks good or anything I would normally want to watch (note my rose coloured glasses has tuned out any bad points to Jurassic world so who knows what goes on inside this brain)
    I have no prior care either to the previous mad max’s ( I vaguely recall snippets of mad max 2 as a child but again there wasn’t ever really any love of that movie, it was just a movie) so I don’t know if that plays a part why my enthusiasm level for this movie is no higher than 50 shades of grey

  • “With a young kid, trips to the cinema are few and far between, but Mad Max: Fury Road? Day one.” I’m just going to assume you’re implying going to the cinema on your own. XD

    • No not really, but I would watch Mad Max 1 and 2 for sure just to enjoy good 70s and 80s Aussie action films and whilst your at it try to find the movie called STONE its a classic Aussie 70s film.

    • Definitely watch Mad Max 1 & 2. Mad Max 1 is great and Mad Max 2 is one of those few amazing sequels that make the earlier movie even better

  • Some of those set pieces look incredible. It bothers me a bit, though, that so much of the action seems to focus on Charlize Theron’s character. I get that she’s the more marketable cast member and a central character but, still, the movie’s not called Mad Max for nothing.

  • What i love about these trailers; I still have no idea what the movie is actually about. Trailers these days show 99% of the movie in 3 minutes…

  • I am so fudging keen for both this and the game. I loved mad max as a kid and i’m pretty sure its why I enjoyed “RAGE” by idsoftware so much. Super keen
