An Honest Trailer for Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga

"The best film to ever be called a disappointment." That's how this Honest Trailer for Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga begins. The fifth Mad Max film and the first without the character Max was a box-office flop, earning $172.7 million worldwide against a budget of $168 million, not counting marketing. It would have had to break $300 million to turn a profit. As it was, half the expense was footed by the Australian government. And the reviews are good, from both critics and audience members.

So what did Furiosa in? Screen Junkies seems to object to a long backstory, too much dialogue, too many characters, and too much bad CGI, although they honestly don't seem to dislike this movie. Industry analysts believe it was partly due to spending too much on the production in a time when people don't want to go to the theater anymore. And insider wisdom tells us prequels just don't perform well. Anyway, you can now watch Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga on streaming video.
