    Finally, a movie worth sitting still for!

    No Mel Gibson =

    Maybe the new guy will be better, but I liked Mel Gibson as Max.

    He's a bit old and well batshit crazy. Max should be mad, not a ranting lunatic. At the risk of pouring cold water here I get the impression from that trailer that this installment has basically no plot and consists of approximately 2hrs of car chases and cool costumes. Nothing beats the original, but the original was awesome mainly because it was the early 80's and the idea of a post apocolyptic world fighting over oil was pretty unthinkable and therefore a more interesting concept.

    Yeah, but dude, he's an actor. Even if he is a little loony as a person, he was pretty good as Max. He had that sort of calm ISTP fire. I just don't want to see what made Mad Max in the first movie disappear.

    But yeah, the trailer showed no plot.

    There is no plot. It's just a trek across the desert with a lot of car wrecks and things blowing up.

    Saw it Sunday afternoon with the hubby ... was ferocious non-stop action, fantastic 3-D effects. A sprinkle of reclaimed humanity and a dash of redemption.

    I always feel massively overstimulated by movies like these, but was glad I saw it in the theatre. I had the most visceral experience I've ever had in a 3-D movie, thought I was literally about to fall off a cliff. Kind of mind-blowing how it was like I was right in the scene! Worth seeing

    we watched it in the theater and didn't find it to be worth what we spent... neither of us were particularly impressed

    the man was downright offended by it, deciding that it had pissed all over something he'd loved as a child and that there was no plot to it whatsoever and no character development and that the bad guys were too hammy to take seriously

    I just thought it was a bit boring, since I didn't care about anyone in the movie and all that happened was driving and fighting and I really hate post apocalyptic movies and the wastelands that they are set in... not enough green

    also, not enough use of the 3d effects to have to deal with wearing those annoying glasses for the duration

    Interesting you found it boring, that kind of movie with so much action is hard for me to process, never mind find boring lol. As far as pissing on the franchise, well, when you take all three movies into account, it's a harder thing to say ... but yea, looking only at the first, nowhere near that.

    I thought the 3-D was wonderful though, it was everywhere all the time, everything was layered on layer and even the most subtle things had touchable, tangible perspective. lol it seems like we saw two different movies!

    yeah, all action with nothing else is like eating steak every day for a year. sure, a steak is a delicious thing, but all steak all of the time would start to become bland and you wouldn't remember how much you'd enjoyed it eventually...

    I only noticed the 3D really during the last accident, when everything flew towards the viewer, otherwise it didn't strike me as truly impressive...

    we must have watched different movies... I took to eating jalapenos from the snack area to stay awake!
