Howdy ladies and gents time for a new trailer review and today I’ll be talking about the trailer for Mad Max: Fury Road. I have heard a lot about this film for many months, from the casting to the reshoots to the first images to the troubled production overall. The trailer came out yesterday and has left a fair amount of buzz on some of my regular websites, so I had to see what the deal is. But now we finally a first look at the film. Is it good or bad? Well read on and find out.
Here is the trailer:
Well damn, I’m kind of speechless after seeing that. That was a bloody insane, I was not expecting what I saw. At first there’s this sandy wasteland, long roads and off-screen talk of a lack of water and I’m thinking “Oh god, here we go again with the post-apocalyptic film where the world’s gone to shit and there’s a lack of proper civilized location, I’m tired of that.” But then you see these groups of people all dressed in such strange attire, very soldier-ish (if that makes any sense), some sporting metal masks and/or face paint. And then there’s the vehicles which look mad, some old-school cars with spiky bonnets, motorcycles and mini tanks. Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron look very rough and ready to kick some ass, and then there’s Nicholas Hoult, what the hell happened to him? He looks unrecognizable, I can’t wait to see what he brings to this film. And then there’s the use of music, that classical music really amplified the madness on-screen and gets you all excited, especially the song towards the end of the trailer, I don’t know the name of it, but I know it is popular. The visual imagery is bloody impressive, the action sequences look intense, the colour scheme and cinematography looks great and the use of CGI for those explosions massive clouds and sandstorms with lightning inside them, madness. I love it! The only thing I can fault the trailer for is the fact that Tom Hardy’s Mad Max doesn’t really say much and comes across as a bit of mute, moody hero with no unique or cool traits. That being said, it is th first trailer, I’m sure Hardy will have something to say.
In conclusion the first trailer for Mad Max: Fury Road is pretty damn cool and interesting. This film honestly was not on my radar at all for 2015, but now that I’ve seen that trailer I’m sold. This film has my attention.Bring it the hell on, I’m down with it.
So what did you think of Mad Max: Fury Road‘s first trailer? Are you excited for it or not? Please leave your thoughts below and I’ll see you on the next review, laters! 😀
