10 Flaws Which Prevented Max: Fury Road From Being Perfect

Playing devil's advocate with the best movie so far this year.

First things first: Mad Max: Fury Road is not only the best film to have come out so far this year, it's undoubtedly one of the best action movies of the last decade, and it won't be surprising if it's considered one of the greatest of all time after the dust has finally settled. George Miller's genius has been in crafting a very traditional action movie and yet at the same time making it feel newer and fresher than anything action fans have seen in a long time. Like The Raid 2: Berendal, it's a reminder of a time when action movies were made with a strong emphasis on practical effects and came with the all-important R rating, allowing for considerably more on-screen violence than most PG-13 rated action films today couldn't hope to match. That said, there's no such thing as perfection (as Salvador Dali once said, "Have no fear of perfection. You'll never reach it.") and Mad Max: Fury Road isn't without a few flaws. The fact that these are mainly incredibly minor - and debatable - points only goes to show just how much the filmmakers got right. Needless to say there are a few SPOILERS coming up over the following few pages, so without further ado let's play devil's advocate take a look at ten aspects of the incredible Mad Max: Fury Road which prevent it from being a perfect work of art.
