Atom User Reviews for Mad Max: Fury Road
The movie conveys so much story despite having very little dialog between its characters. Also the effects are visually stunning.
The best high-speed adrenaline rush since Death Race!
Nothing is too much, and whilst there is the danger that some will find the unremitting havoc tiresome, Miller's endless innovation keeps things fresh despite the surrounding wasteland.
There is gargantuan excess here, to be sure — and no shortage of madness — but there is also an astonishing level of discipline.
For a while, Fury Road’s complete disinterest in screenwriting fundamentals feels liberating, as the director keeps upping the ante on this desperate chase through the desert. But what feels liberating at first can become monotonous, and Fury Road starts to drag once the frenetic sameness of Miller’s strategy takes hold.
