Why does this movie fall short of greatness? I'm glad you asked! In many of the action scenes it seems like it was shot with a slower frame rate which gives the illusion of speed, but it also makes everything jerk around like a teenaged boy. It's an interesting gimmick, but overused in Mad Max: Fury Road. The script is lacking as well. While the world around the movie is intricately detailed down to the grains of sand, once you're past that there isn't much going on other than the characters running from the bad guys. Some of the dialogue in the slower moments feels awkward. What makes it even worse is that this is a Mad Max movie where Tom Hardy has very few lines. He feels like a side character sometimes that could have been replaced by Elmo from Sesame Street without anyone noticing. Overall it's a fantastic ride of adrenaline filled action set in a beautifully detailed post apocalyptic world. If you like that sort of thing then you should go see it (you probably like that sort of thing).
Tomorrowland or Poltergeist
