I liked the way it was filmed and all the action sequences but that's about it. Not a lot of dialogue from Max and some backstory on him would have been great. No explanation at all on who that little girl was, assume it's his daughter. For a 2 hour movie, it ended pretty quick with not a whole lot going on.

Animal House?

If you want back story on Max there is already an existing trilogy that will tell you everything you could need to know about what made him the way he is.

I thought this was separate from all the other movies. I never watched said existing trilogy so it's probably why I was confused in some parts. Still, it's got other flaws.

It's actually just a continuation with Tom replacing Mel Gibson after all these years. Same character, same history. George Miller who wrote and directed this also did the original trilogy. It was essentially the fourth movie in the saga. So yes if you want answers go back to The Road Warrior. Actually the main villain of this film Immortan Joe is played by the same actor Hugh Keays-Byrne who was the very first villain of the franchise, the Toecutter way back in 1979.

Of course it's got flaws, it's an action movie. I know it was essentially a two hour car chase without dialogue but that was the intention, Max talks plenty in the original films but at this point in his journey he's come a long way and lost so many people that he just isn't the same kind hearted cop anymore. He was changed on the day his family was murdered. Think of Max Rockatansky as the Aussie Frank Castle.

'Fury Road’ May Return to Theaters in 2016—in Black and White

If you’re itching to see Mad Max: Fury Road on the big screen again, you may be in luck. During the lead-up to the release of George Miller’s action masterwork, the filmmaker teased that an alternate version of the film existed—a black and white cut. He revealed in subsequent interviews that the plan was to include this black and white version on the Blu-ray release of the film, but when the home video rollout came around, there was unfortunately no color-drained version to be found. However, instead of Warner Bros. simply opting not to release this version of the film, it appears they may just have been saving it for a much higher profile release.

As part of a profile in Screen Daily (via The Playlist), Miller not only reveals that the black and white iteration of Fury Road was his original intent, but producer Doug Mitchell adds that an official version of this cut might receive a theatrical release in 2016. That’d be a pretty spectacular way for Warner Bros. to keep fans of the film happy and earn a little extra dough in the process. And while we were all disappointed to see the black and white cut wasn’t on the Blu-ray, all would be forgiven if Warner Bros. was keen on giving this version the theatrical treatment.


I find it quite curious that Miller’s original intention was for Fury Road to be in black and white. The finished version of the film is dripping with exuberant color as cinematographer John Seale’s palette is more painterly and exaggerated, adding yet another layer to the picture. I’m mighty interested to see how the film plays without this aspect.

Whether this black and white cut is better or worse than the theatrical, any excuse to see Mad Max: Fury Road in theaters again is a worthwhile one. Here’s hoping Warner Bros. pulls the trigger on this brilliant idea. Who knows, maybe Fury Road will become a reparatory picture of sorts, playing in theaters regularly over the years. It sure as hell deserves to be experienced on the big screen as often as possible.

Didn't like the movie that much personally so without color might even make it less interesting for me.

That's because since you still haven't seen the original trilogy you don't even know who Max is. Fury Road was the fourth film in the saga so you have only seen a fraction of the story. I loved Fury Road and have already seen it five times. Twisted Evil
