Watched Mad Max 2015

I watched Mad Max last night with my (far) better half Diane – It was good, well put together but seriously think they should rename it Furious Furiosa, as Tom ‘Max’ Hardy was not the lead character/protagonist (IMO) – Even Nic Hoult’s character had more plot development than Hardy’s…. BUT THEN (this is gonna hurt a lot of people) I personally do not feel that Tom can carry a film, his best performances have all come from where he is the main support not the lead… don’t get me wrong, the lad can act… he does a good turn, not the best at accents but he still delivers… he just hasn’t got that twinkle to be the main character… a far cry from Denzel or Hanks… stick to what you excel at… being the supporting character the audience remembers not the lead of the film that doesn’t measure up…

I preferred the original (the new version is basically Mad Max 1&2 put together) more so when you think the original cost $200,000 against the $150,000,000 price tag this one cost… I guess there is a reason why Hollywood needs to keep rebooting the films of yesteryear… just wished they learn how to make them better rather than worse….
