To be fair, I should mention that I am a little partial to post-apocalyptic stories.
I've read and seen a lot of them...
And a big part of my love of this stuff came from seeing two big movies in the 80s, The Terminator which showed in a few brief examples what the world could look like, and The Road Warrior, which showed a post-apocalyptic world in all its terrifying glory.
So I'm a little biased.
At the same time, they were switching up the star, and I've seen a whole lot of disappointing sequels, reboots and re-imaginings when it comes to my favourite genres over the last few years, so I went in a little cautiously...
This movie was pretty fantastic.
Yes it was a little light on story, and yes the dialogue is pretty minimal.
But oh my god did I love seeing this on the big screen.
The fact that almost 80E% of what you will end up seeing is crazy car and physical effects rather than CG makes this to be one of the most visually stunning things I've seen in a long long time.
Will it end up on my DVD/Blu-Ray shelves? Yes, no question.
Should you see it on the big screen while you still can?
