Mad Max Fury Road 10/10

5 Stars


As the world fell, each of us in our own way was broken. It was hard to know who was more crazy, me, or everyone else.

Considering this is a special effects based action film with minimal dialog, there wasn’t a single moment that I lost interest. Stunning use of practical effects, that still surpasses any CGI. Amazing aesthetically and inkeeping with the Mad Max visual style, brillant soundtrack,  solid story and use of plot devices. And Tom Hardy was outstanding.

Given how good this film is, there is one thing that I can’t let go of, and I’ll just say it. It would have been even more perfect with Mel.  It would just fit so well.  A Max in his late 50’s, well into the apocalypse, populated by culturally unrecognisable societies. At a time when road war has been perfected.  This could have been the perfect end to a tetralogy, showing over decades, one mans survival through the downfall of civilisation.  From pre-collapse to the inevitable irrational, predatory, self-inflicted nightmare it would become.

There was something about Tim Burton’s Batman that was just so aesthetically spot on…

Gotham City, with all its weird Germanic architecture and constantly miserable, dark weather.  The Batmobile is one of the best looking vehicles ever made. And possibly the most iconic elements of the film, were of course the antagonist and protagonist… Jack Nicholson’s Joker and Micheal Keaton’s Batman.


Micheal Keaton looking damn awesome

This piece is still a work in progress. The cowl needs cleaning up, the face needs more detail and obviously everything needs retopping and a UV layout. Furthermore I plan to have the him done in his entirety, including full body, as soon as possible.
