“We all go a little mad sometimes” – Norman Bates, Psycho
There have been some big trailers to come out recently that I’m sure you’ve seen.
Jurassic World- Meh, mixed feelings.
Terminator Genisys- Stupid name and looks like a bad remake of T2.
Star Wars VII- Looks awesome but we still don’t know anything.
These big movies have all kinds of hype and buzz, but there may have been one movie that slipped a little under the radar for most people…
And that’s Mad Max: Fury Road
And the trailer kicks ass.
This looks like Mad Max 2 on speed and multiplied by 10. AND I LOVE MAD MAX 2.
If you don’t know about the Mad Max movies let me fill you in. Pretty much it’s a post-apocalyptic world set in Australia where gasoline is a hot commodity, and gangs of bandits in crazy cars roam the deserted landscape. Max, the main character, is also kind of crazy, in a likable badass protagonist kind of way.
It’s kind of awesome to put it mildly.
So let’s break this trailer down in detail.
We see crazy people who worship steering wheels
Tom Hardy is Mad Max and Tom Hardy is awesome
Looks like the crazy gang flips Max’s car
Scary dude with a bunch of bad guys? Ssshhhiiiittttt
These guys are so crazy that they jump onto a car made of spikes and then explode
No hope? Ssssssshhhhhhiiiiiiiiittttttttt
Sick jump bro
Steering Wheel Gang strikes again!
Charlize Theron looks hot in this scene…I mean that desert is probably a scorcher
From the guy who brought you Happy Feet and Babe: Pig in the City
(He also made the original Mad max trilogy too)
Wait…IS THAT A GUITAR THAT’S ALSO A FLAMETHROWER?
I don’t even know.
Little to no plot.
Crazy car chases.
If this movie isn’t rated R I will say angry things to myself before I go to sleep at night.
But hopefully this movie is as bananas as the trailer is. It looks awesome besides the ending sandstorm part that’s a little too CGI for my taste, but I will watch the movie regardless of any crap rating it could possible get.
Overall Trailer Score: 5 out of 5 steering wheels
Also, look at the cast & characters:
Imperator Furiosa? Rictus Erectus? DESPERATE WOMEN?
