Believe the Hype - 'Mad Max: Fury Road' Buzz is Through the Roof

Mad Max Fury Road

What a lovely day! Warner Bros lifted the embargo on press reactions/reviews early on Monday this week before the release of George Miller's long-awaited, highly anticipated Mad Max: Fury Road in theaters this weekend. The film was screened for press a few weeks ago, and they all pretty much lost their minds, but had to wait and hold their tongues until today. My own effusive tweet is included in these, as I loved it too, and I wanted to collect a look at all of the great buzz the film is getting. As of writing this, it has a 97% fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes, and I'm sure it'll stay fresh. Because it's so !@#$ing awesome! I've already got tickets to see it again on Thursday. This should be your cue to make plans for Fury Road this weekend.

Here's a few of the tweets from various critics and cinephiles on Mad Max: Fury Road that we found today:

Head to Twitter and follow @MadMaxMovie for more updates and buzz from all over. Or search Mad Max.

Mad Max: Fury Road is a reboot of the adventure franchise that began with Mad Max in 1979, starring Mel Gibson. George Miller, the director of the original film and its sequel, is back behind the camera, working from a script he co-wrote with first-time writer Nick Lathouris. Within this world of fire and blood exist two rebels on the run who just might be able to restore order. There’s Max (Tom Hardy) a man of action and a man of few words, who seeks peace of mind following the loss of his wife and child in the aftermath of the chaos. Meanwhile, Furiosa (Charlize Theron) is a woman of action who believes her path to survival may be achieved if she can make it across the desert back to her childhood homeland. Nicholas Hoult, Zoe Kravitz, Riley Keough and more star in the film Warner Bros. Pictures releases this summer on May 15th. Ready?

I'm waiting a week from today so I can see it with my gf. I'm nice like that. But all this buzz is killing me. I want this movie in my line of sight immediately.

I thought it sucked. Never seen so many people get up and walk out of a free screening.

Why do you think it sucked?

TheOct8pus on May 12, 2015


Visually its awesome and that's where it ends. I can only take so much grunting a dialogue and I've seen porn with less grunting and better dialogue. There is no story and its just boring and drags on. Tom Hardy has like a total of 80 lines in the whole movie and you can. Hear 10 on of them because he is whispering throughout if he isn't grunting. I had to grip my seat in order to prevent myself from walking out. I'm sorry. The hype isn't worth it. The fix is in.

Gotcha. Thanks!

TheOct8pus on May 12, 2015


It's an action movie. This is pure, the real thing. Story and dialogue? What did you think you were seeing, Wuthering Heights? Seriously though, I understand the objection - but if you're on this movie's wavelength it's basically the best example of this type of filmmaking ever. The action and the spectacle are the point, and all character development, motivation and communication is expressed through the action, rather than in the lulls between the action (as would usually be the case). It's a very well-made movie, but it's so extreme in its purity that it's practically experimental. Makes The Road Warrior look like a parlor drama.

on my list and it wasn't there when I first heard of it!

ari smulders on May 11, 2015


Its been about about 8 months since they first teased the movie and its a pleasure to know that the wait was worth every day.

Vespertilio on May 12, 2015


Not surprised. The trailer is the greatest movie ever made.

ragethorn on May 12, 2015


I wish Meshuggah did the soundtrack.

Jacob Crim on May 12, 2015


I dunno..... I see what you're saying, but think the director was looking for something more classic for this film. I'm afraid Meshuggah is something that will be forgotten in the death metal soup 30 years from now.

TheOct8pus on May 12, 2015


Really looking forward to watching this. I came across a rumour that Mel Gibson passed on this when production stalled. Is this true? Much as it sounds like a great reboot, would of loved to seen Mel once more as Max.

My most anticipated movie of the summer. So excited!!!

Furiosa21 on May 12, 2015


Last year I only saw one movie at the cinemas twice. That was Interstellar. I look forward to see this in 3D and 2D even if it's the only movie I get to see at the cinemas this year.

Mike Zarquon on May 12, 2015


Yes. A film that suffered a prolonged production period shows how it can be a good thing, sometimes.
