Too fucking insane to be ignored in a forum like this.

For you practical-over-CG nuts, this is your sweet, sweet nectar. Drink heartily!

For fans of post-apocalyptic sci-fi, it's as cool and inventive as Star Wars!

For action film fans, it's a cinematic erection lasting 2 hours! And no need to call your doctor!

For Mad Max fans, the fire of the series is back and better than ever!

For anyone else, trust the sheer movie madness that's been wrangled out in the desert for our starving reptilian brains!

Just got back from it and it is up there with some of the best action movies I've ever seen.

Brilliantly staged sequences and incredible stunt work. Well-paced and never boring.

There's not much else to say: go see it if you haven't.

It's as fine a modern action film that you can find and I really look forward to seeing it again. I can't wait to see what they do next in the series.

One of the best aspects of the film is the restraint, which probably sounds insane for a movie with a big post-apocalyptic car chase with massive explosions as its centerpiece, including an albino Darth Vader and a guy strapped to a wall of speakers playing a flame-throwing electric guitar nonstop. But what I mean is Fury Road never beats you over the head with needless exposition or lengthy dialog scenes that would grind everything to a halt. What you need to know about the characters you get from seeing how they behave and interact with each other. What you need to know about the setting and premise can be inferred from the characters' appearance and actions.

It's why I laugh at any claim of Fury Road not doing enough to explain everything to them... some audiences have gotten so used to being spoonfed everything in movies made in the last decade that they can't process something that actually uses subtext anymore.
