Fury Road is coming out and I'm on the hinges as to whether I even want to review it. Despite the trailer's explosions and pure awesomeness, the one thing that keeps me from fully committing is Charlize Theron's character who seems to take the entire leading role. Terribly sorry, I'm done with fake, never-will-happen, female propagandist advertising.
Charlize Theron is a 5'4", 115 pound woman. A reasonably aggressive, medium sized dog could outdo her and have her for dinner. But yet, I'm supposed to sit here and accept the possibility she is the leader of a group of women and is on par with Tom Hardy's character who is the presum-ed replacement for Mel Gibson.
No, not buying it.
I don't care how many explosions and tornadoes you put in your trailer.
I don't care how many "extreme" Aussie characters you have saying "WHAT A LOVELY DAY!!!!"
This entire movie reeks of a politically correct, leftist, feminist propaganda trap to sucker me in, pay my $10 for a ticket, only to walk away saying "WTF, no woman could do that!" as you then include my purchase and millions of other dupes' purchases to say "Fury Road" is the #1 movie in America.
Sorry, not falling for it.
I'm going to wait until the suckers go and see it, read the reviews, and THEN MAYBE contemplate parting with my hard earned money to see it.
In the meantime, I recommend all of you do the same.
Hollywood has desperately tried to court the female audience to the point it has alienated the male audience. I suggest you men grow a pair and wait for the reviews to come out before wasting 3 hours of your life and $20 in tickets to see another "sermon" from Hollywood about "strong, powerful, independent" women.
