I saw Mad Max this week and for those of you who haven’t seen it, drop whatever you’re doing right now and go and see it. It’s a small miracle this movie even got made and an even larger miracle at how awesome it is. From the practical effects, to the stunts, to the character development; everything in this movie is done with purpose. I can’t remember the last time I saw a movie that jumped head first into such a bizarre and wonderful world with such commitment. It respects its audience and knows that we don’t need lots of exposition and clunky dialog to follow along.
I really hope we get more action movies like this in the future.
