Ce spun criticii de Mad Max: Fury Road


Cateva dovezi ca si criticii sunt oameni capabili sa guste un spectacol cinematic "80% actiune, 20% drama" atunci cand acesta e facut cu imaginatie, tupeu si fara compromisuri. Dupa ce-am fost epuizat de experienta Mad Max: Fury Road am petrecut o dimineata intreaga citind parerile presei occidentale despre orgia vizuala semnata de George Miller. Mai jos cateva din cele mai indemanatice superlative:


The fourth installment of George Miller’s rambunctious post-apocalyptic saga arrives in theaters like a tornado tearing through a tea party. In an age of weightless spectacles that studios whittle down from visions to products, here’s a movie that feels like it was made by kidnapping $150 million of Warner Bros.’ money, absconding with it to the Namibian desert, and sending footage back to Hollywood like the amputated body parts of a ransomed hostage... That’s why Max is an enduring hero: He always knows when to drive off into the sunset. This time, he leaves a generation of blockbuster cinema choking on his dust. (David Ehrlich, Time Out New York)


Fury Road takes a Rabelaisian delight in grotesque bodies, and the various ways in which they can be made to splatter, burn and pop... Enormous, naked women are milked like cattle, dwarfs are hoisted on palanquins, and men as pale and gaunt as Méliès aliens are knocked out, gnawed on, sawn up and catapulted through explosions. Imagine if Cirque du Soleil reenacted a Hieronymus Bosch painting and someone set the theatre on fire. This is more or less what Miller has come up with. (Robbie Collin, The Telegraph)


Inspiring fear and giddy excitement in equal measures, "Fury Road" suggests the unruly collision of "Ben Hur" and a Road Runner cartoon. (Eric Kohn, Indiewire)


A relentless action spectacle that will dazzle audiences with its visceral torque and blazing vehicular madness, perhaps the most impressive feat director George Miller has achieved with "Mad Max: Fury Road" — beyond successfully thunderdoming without Mel Gibson and executing some of the most spectacular action-stunt sequences committed to celluloid maybe ever — is how the 70-year-old filmmaker takes a traditionally testosterone-fueled series and reimagines it as a kind of feminist manifesto with much on its mind. (Rodrigo Perez, The Playlist)


It’s like Grand Theft Auto revamped by Hieronymus Bosch, with a dab of Robert Rodríguez’s From Dusk Till Dawn. (Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian)


The engine may have been completely stripped and rebuilt using newly acquired parts, but the result is nothing short of awesome. A supercharged spectacle that races through the gears delivering shot after shot of gasoline-laced adrenaline direct to the heart. It is, perhaps surprisingly, a singularly entertaining modern blockbuster. (Adam Woodward, LittleWhiteLies)


George Miller always wanted his carmageddon movies to bust out the Ozploitation ghetto and get right up in Hollywood’s grille… this reboot retains all the brutality, antipodean humour and fertile imagination played out on arid vistas you could hope for. It is, in a word, crazy. In two, it's fucking crazy. (Jamie Graham, Total Film)


Miller’s Mad Max: Fury Road is a hammer-down, cast-iron-plated, diesel-exhaust-belching manifesto on the physics of screen action, a metamechanics monster truck show with everything but a Robosaurus… It is a movie of split-second decisions, cut-the-crap materialistic down to the very last particular, where every bullet in a clip (and the one in the chamber) and every centimetre of leeway counts. (Nick Pinkerton, Sight and Sound).
