The vehicles are CGI or they certainly look like they are. And the scene I saw the truck was supposed to be speeding along but it just didn't look like it to me. Not impressed with it just from the 30 seconds I saw.

Tell me I'm wrong but it did not look real to me.
Great article on the Doof Machine...
MTV: So wait, the whole thing actually worked?

Gibson: You bet your sweet… George — unfortunately — doesn’t like things that don’t work. I have in the past built him props that I thought were just supposed to be props, and then he goes, “Okay, plug it in now.”

Saw the Mad Max movie on Friday... Can't say I liked it very much

Hired a DVD Million Dollar Arm. I'm a sucker for movies based on a true story. I like being inspired.
Nothing extraordinary about this film although I did enjoy it! Having lived in India for a while, it did make me smile at times.

Saw Mad Max Fury Road yesterday. I thought it was crap. Not much of a script..... lame dialogue and not the best acting. I don't dislike action/stunt packed movies. Just that this one seemed to lack any substance.

Doesn't surprise me. As much as I like Miller's old MM & MM2 & some of his other movies, the previews for this LOOK like that's all it is. Pity.

thanks Chris, that explains a lot. The clips I saw that looked fake were mainly in-car shots looking out, sounds like the backdrops were edited which explains it.

I think the film was done with a lot of love for the originals, and part of that was to use as many practical effects as possible. One article names and explains each car in detail, and they ended up with some 150 cars (some were duplicates for different scenes) by the end of it.
