Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga

So... as this is a prequel I thought I could get away with seeing it on the big screen not having seen Fury Road. I had absolutely meant to see Fury Road on the big screen, and had somehow 9 years had passed! I didn't want to make the same mistake with this one as it looked visually amazing, and I was sold by it being about Furiosa, Anya Taylor-Joy's character.

I'm pleased I got to see this on the big screen as technically it was a superb film. George Miller does deliver cinema - The camera movements, shots, and explosions were phenomenal. The story however, was lacking. It started off brilliantly and I would have been happy to have more of the story centred around the women. So the day after seeing this, I watched Fury Road at home on DVD and it gave me exactly what I had wanted from the story from Furiosa. In fact I was surprised at how comedic Fury Road was, and in comparison Furiosa really did take itself quite seriously. What frustrated me about the prequel was just how repetitive the action was. I noticed the score lacked the orchestral and quieter moments that Fury Road had, and eventually I had walked out feeling like I had spent 2 hours or so just listening to car engine sounds revving and roaring, which is really not my ideal way to spend my time. Nonetheless, the first 90 minutes were great, I just wished it had ended earlier and that there had been much more substance. Fury Road, in my opinion, is a far superior film with a greater and more direct message.
