Sam Raimi and Gil Kenan remakes a classic original to a terrible remake. This film delivers no scares, techniques or much imagination to the story. Even for it's shorter length from the original this feels like a drag & really slow from beginning to end. Even with it's latest in cinema technology doesn't compensate the film to make it any interesting.
After a slow start that story with the action and marvellous stunts kicks in. This 2015 version is no remake to the 1979 story as it didn't use the revenge story instead it talks about the apocalypse side. Although Tom Hardy didn't do as much as Mel Gibson, the supporting cast offered a lot to the film to deliver the story. George Miller creates a unique vision of an updated Mad Max with spectacular cinematography. Otherwise very happy on the way how this story was told. In this one gasoline and water are together very precious.
With a slow first act but once the second act starts the story gets more and more interesting. As the plot thickens Christopher Nolan has so much to offer from story to his visionary art to explain everything by linking the story all together to make all sense. At times the film drags on but with the interesting story that makes up for the film this is a really good piece of art from visual effects, cinematography, editing and art direction, but don't compare this film with Kubrick's 2001. Great to see Michael Caine and John Lithgow.
Luckily I didn't watch this on cinema even though I liked the Ninja Turtles as a child, all because of one credit "Michael Bay". This film lacks a lot on story/screenplay with lots of dull moments and it's drag as I nearly did fall asleep watching this even when it's a loud action sequence. I did liked the costumes and some of the cool elements from the cartoon. Another franchise ruined by Michael Bay and possible more. Also what a way to advertise "Project Almanac" in this film. I'm definitely staying away from that film too.
Warner Bros. and the Wachowski siblings together make another movie with great visual effects, fast action editing, dazzling make-up, beautiful costumes/production designs, tremendous stunts and dazzling sound effects. However the story and screenplay sinks this film with an ordinary idea and a slow paced film with a mix of different repeated ideas from other science fiction films. I thought this film is a drag as there were just too much information for some scenes.
