Great movie. I thought Charlize was great in this movie. Hope we get a sequel even though Pitch Perfect 2 kicked it's ass over the weekend.

I thought this was Mad Max 2 turned up to 11. There are some incredible action sequences and plenty of style and pizazz. If you liked any of the past films in any way, then you will love this.

I've been hearing that the focus of the film is mainly on Theron's character, as in Max plays a smaller role as a hero than her character does. Is this true?

Essentially, yes. The main narrative thrust is really Furiosa (Theron) getting the women to safety, and Max is essentially along for the ride. She and Max are the co-leads and each have huge moments in saving each other's hides at numerous times.

Though really Max is still the focus and it's much like the previous movies where he stumbles into some already occurring event. A friend and I thought of him as the dog from the old Littlest Hobo show :D

I loved it. Saw it in 3D - don't waste your money on 3D.

My love for Charlize Theron grew even more after this movie. I look forward to her spin off bit also a movie more centered on Max. They can take this franchise in a few directions. I'll be there for all of them.

Nobody has mentioned THE COLOSSUS OF BOGGO ROAD, good ole unreliable Nathan Jones, having a pretty big part as Rictus, the Son of Immortan Joe?

Saw it this afternoon and it completely lived up to the great word of mouth.

The best part of Nathan Jones' performance was that I didn't realize it was Nathan Jones until the credits

I dunno, how far could they go in 160 days? Assuming the terrain is rough, uneven, and criss-crossed with trenches and crevasses and that there are no roads or paving at any point -- since the salt used to be the ocean -- where would they end up?

They did it in 80 days in a Balloon in "Around the world in 80 days".

I imagine a motorcycle would be faster. They are estimating 2x the time.

Like he said, don't think so hard.

Yeah, that's what I'm assuming all the salt fields are. With no roads and no map and no clue where you're going I'm not sure 160 days is going to put you in a useful place. It's a leap of faith at best.

Eh, on the other hand, Max has probably been going in circles for years and has no idea what he's talking about.

I wanted really badly to like this movie, but i never cared about y he brides or Theron. The only thing positive i can say is, Holy Shit did the stunt coordinator ever earn his check. Amazing stunts.

This movie was so fantastic. I never expected it to live up to all the hype or my own expectations going in, but it did the series proud. The guitar player was a great touch. I'm glad I saw this in the theater, and will probably watch it every time I see it on television.
