Fury Road Test Screening Reactions


Mad Max: Fury Road had a test screening last night.  Here are some of the reactions:

“Just back from the screening. Hard to digest what I’ve just seen. I’m not going to post spoilers, sorry. Think I need a night to really absorb it. It’s an insane movie. Seriously. Probably the most unique big budget movie I’ve ever seen. It’s closer in tone and style to Thunderdome than MM2, I think but it’s very removed from the original trilogy. MUCH bigger, for one thing. Reminded me of Damnation Alley in places. For those of you worried about the sci-fi bent, you’re not going to be happy. It’s packed full of ideas, sometimes overwhelmingly so. The car chases and stuntwork are absolutely breathtaking. The movie looks beautiful. Cast are great although Hardy’s unpredictable. He won’t be for everyone. All this talk about the BoB but you’ll fall in love with the War Rig, so it evens out nicely. Couldn’t see it being an R. There’s nothing here as gnarly as MM2.”

“Just saw a screening of #MadMaxFuryRoad and it was INCREDIBLE!! I will watch it again in theaters. Charlize stole the show!”

“Just finished screening #madmax , fucken AWESOME!!!! #TomHardy was perfect. Must see next year, will post ticket later.”

Chatter about the movie suggests that it’s a reboot and will likely be PG-13.  It’s also significantly shorter than the first screening which took place in April, by about half an hour.  In tone the movie is supposed to be closer to Thunderdome than either of the the first two movies.  It was a screening for random people, their reactions were noted.

Oh, some new pictures have also surfaced.

    Although I’ve never seen any of the Mad Maxes, sadly, but this movie looks really cool with the modified vehicles & big Nathan Jones being in it. May 2015 is way too far away

      Hardy hyped up losing weight and appearing ‘feral’. I guess that didn’t happen, he’s bulked.

    PG-13, definitely. So I won’t watch it at the ‘Talkies’.

    Looks cool, though.

    If only it had Mel as max it’d be the most must see movie of all time 🙁

    Macho, I just ordered the trilogy after seeing some scenes from I was worried that it was so old it would be unwatchable having never seen it but it still looked intriguing.

    Its $ well spent
    Made Mel The Man Gibson known to the world.which led him to been cast in Lethal Weapon. Road Warrior is a fuckin classic. Those films where made for very lil $ but it was amazing what they did. if u are on this site, to get a feel for what it stands for, the mad max trilogy definetly is a great example. Let me know how u like ’em
