This is one of the best action films of the past 20 years. Bet you can't change my mind...
Aside from being a technical and visual masterpiece, visually stunning (despite what could otherwise be a very bland atmosphere/location to shoot in), we're talking about a 2 hour car chase through the desert with. minimal dialogue or explanation that still manages to keep the viewer engaged throughout the film.
It also tells you everything you need to know about the film (and perhaps keeps a few things unexplained to keep some mystery) without force-feeding it to you. The director just shows it to you and immerses you in the world.
From a filmmaking standpoint, the method of shooting was ingenius. It's not what most people would think to do - almost all the shots were center focused. In other words, the subject of the shot was kept center of the frame. In fact, the camera operator had crosshairs placed on his viewfinder and was told by the director (George Miller) where to point it to keep what was important in center-frame.
George Miller wanted the cutting and the action to be extremely fast-paced and high-intensity. In order to allow the audience to fully understand the chaos taking place on screen, he made sure that was possible by using center-framing, since it prevents the viewer's eyes from having to travel across the screen for every cut (from one side to another, for example), and prevents confusion. You don't have to search for what is important in the frame. It's given right to you. I'm not aware of any other films that have done this.
To cap it all off, the production design - art, vehicles, costumes, makeup - are impeccable and done with amazing craftsmanship.
I could keep going...
But you get the idea.
It's not a perfect film (very few come close to perfect and none achieve it), but it sure is entertaining and re-watchable.
