I watched it on Saturday! I was baffled there were so few people in the evening showing on the film's first weekend. Germans usually do love badass cars and explosions and action!
I need to say it's a movie that you should watch if you want to send Hollywood a signal about how you'd like people to see portrayed in movies - as actual human people.
In a way it's just a good action movie and most importantly it isn't one that's utterly stupid in the way it portrays female characters as well as male ones. The absence of the typical stupid shit in that regard is what stands out in this movie.
Oh and the loudly touted feminist agenda of that movie? There actually is none and the idiots who negatively call that out just can't handle seeing women portrayed and treated as actually normal human beings with strengths and weaknesses and most of all with dignity and character, as well as the men, by the way.
Even the main villain has notable sensibilities.
So that's why it's a "feminist" movie.
It might depend on which definition of feminism anyone subscribes to. Radical it is not, but equal.
But on the other hand, it's radical in that it's not dumb, which is sad, but positive out of this very sadness.
So, this movie might not be up everyone's alley, but if you wanna send Hollywood a signal as to how you like to see people written and portrayed, support it.
(It's almost like the makers of this film interact with actual people frequently and want to implement such in their productions)
Have you watched Fury Road yet? Did you think it's just a good action movie or did you get more out of it for yourself?
