So I managed to see Mad Max: Fury Road over the weekend. Holy crap. It got me wondering — where does it rank in terms of the greatest action movies ever made?
For me personally, it's up there. Just in terms of its ability to make the action tell a story. These aren't action 'sequences' or 'set-pieces', the action is the story. Everything is communicated through the action, and it's seamless.
I loved it. Zero exposition. Just this is what is happening, right now. You fill in the blanks. Loved it.
Other action movies I loved? Terminator 2, Aliens, Predator, Die Hard, Mad Max 2. I truly believe Fury Road is up there with that group. Your thoughts?
