    1. Giving this 5 stars not just because the movie was really, really good. But the book was pretty good, awesome and interesting. What with the behind the scenes, how the idea came for Fury Road, the stunts, the concept art, storyboards, film stills, the different car designs, what went in writing the characters and their personalities, etc. I could go on about how much I love this book but will say its worth the read.Whether you're a fan of the movies or movie type books like this, then you'll lov [...]

    2. Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous. As with the film, no detail is too insignificant. For a story dealing with a harsh post-apocalyptic world there is a real warmth here - because the art, and the journey, is so important to the creators. One of the best film art books I've come across.

    3. Hey kid, did you read a book before you went to bed tonight? Yeah? That's cool, now SHUT UP BECAUSE WHO CARES IT WASN'T MAD MAX.This book is mostly pure high-octane awesome with like twenty pages of glamour shots from the movie but Who Cares. It is mostly Brendan McCarthy and when it isn't it should be. It's still better than that dumb book you like with feelings in it.

    4. Mad Max: Fury Road is one of the coolest films of the past decade or more. A post-apocalypse rock opera with strong female heroes and no shortage of amazing visuals, it's a movie that I will never, ever tire of.The 'Art of' book is pretty excellent. Fury Road has a lot going on beneath the surface, which this book does not always get into, but there's so much surface detail that the book feels epic in scope anyway. The crazy cars, the unforgiving landscape, the insane homemade weapons, and the c [...]

    5. Gorgeous book. --Now that I've read it front to back, I can say it again: gorgeous book. The perfect companion to what I think is my favourite movie this decade. I would have killed to be part of set design. Lord all the glorious attention to detail and how the storyboarding worked out and the amazing vehicles and stunts? Lovely. So very very lovely.

    6. A visually stunning movie gets an appropriately gorgeous art book. Just wish there was a little more meat to it.

    7. Audiences are raving about “Mad Max: Fury Road”. This is a great book that will serve as a nice companion to the film. See a photo gallery at movieartbook/2015/05/tSee the HD unboxing video at youtu/IdgEjKb_GmUThis is a well-balanced book that includes a lot of imagery: early sketches, concept art, production photos, character portraits, and shots of the finished movie. The book is mainly organized by major characters and sequence. Material is presented in chronological order of how it appea [...]

    8. I am a Mad Max fan. I am a fan of everything post-apocalyptic, but I have always been specially drawn to the Mad Max movies. Watching Mad Max: Fury Road, the last installment in the franchise, made me feel I was back in the 80s with better technology.This book is a must-have for fans. But apart from the concept art and the storyboards and anecdotes, I would like to call attention to George Miller's foreword. Here, the director explains his vision and the ideas behind production design. I was sur [...]

    9. This may likely be the best "Art of " book that I've read. I can't give enough credit to this one. The manner that the art is presented, the live-action stills from the film, and excerpts from the filmmakers, artists, actors, etc. This is colorful, engaging, informative, and entertaining on one of the best films of 2015 (in my humble opinion). In complete honesty: this is a master class in how to present a book about the art of, and making of a film.

    10. Loved the film! This book is really cool too. Goes behind the scenes, breaking the film down into sections with commentary, stills, storyboard and concept art. Definitely recommended, even more so if you enjoyed the film too.

    11. This is a fun book if you liked (or loved, like I did) 2015's Mad Max: Fury Road (as my mom didn't). It has not only a lot of storyboards (started in 1998!) but information about the special effects, reasoning behind the story, and actor insights into the characters. It's always great to see the artists behind the art.

    12. A good mix of concept art and production stills, you can't help but feel a greater appreciation for all the effort this team put into making as real a film as possible. Once you read how much time was spent focused on storyboarding action sequences and grounding practical effects, it'll just make you want to experience the franchise all over again.

    13. This book had a lot of details about the making of the movie with quotes from artists, stunt men, and others. There are lots of photos of cars, clothes, and locations while under construction. While there is not so many concept art pieces included, there is a lot of the story boards from the writing of the movie shown to us. It was interesting and enjoyable to read.

    14. Huge, gorgeous art book, highly recommended for anyone who loves mutant cars (and you know I do)!

    15. This book is verry good but not great. Some interesting stories, good photographs and art but still it has some shortcoming that make it feel more for a juvenile or fan boy. It has odd omissions that make you wonder how involved in the movie was the writter for instance:- Short biography's of the "wives" that don't really explain much. For instance, the Splended Angharad's name is never explained- only a banal reference to her being the Immortans favorite and wanting better things for her child. [...]

    16. Review written for and published by Portland Book Review on November 18th:The Art of Mad Max: Fury Road is a fascinating art book and companion guide to the film. This hardcover coffee table book is broken up into a number of chapters discussing various aspects of the film, and the world in which it exists. Many of the main characters – such as Furiosa, Immortan Joe, and the Wives – have their own sections. The book also contains chapters dedicated to various machines, specific scenes in the [...]

    17. I've heard some people complain that this is more of a film companion than an art book. I'm not sure I can disagree more as the central premise of the making of the film was that it was birthed from storyboards and art design. The script, in the traditional sense, was written only after literal years of visual input. Plus, we have to look at the word 'art'. Is that strictly paintings and drawings or, in the film sense, does that include set design, set dressing, and props. I think it does. And b [...]

    18. It's actually missing some interesting concept art I'd seen around the internet and thought for sure would be in here, but I guess they had to editorialize. Some of the notes are oddly contextualized in a way that makes me question how reliably quoted any of it is (for one, it was the hugely thematic blood transfusion scene when Max saves Furiosa, not the action of her saving him from falling off the rig, that Miller cheekily summed up as a "post-nuclear version of Gone With The Wind,"* which we [...]

    19. I am not a professional art critic, but that is okay, because there is not much to criticize in this artistic exploration into the new Mad Max movie, Fury Road. What I do have going for me is a long lived appreciation for the Mad Max movies, or at least the first two. But enough about me, let's talk about this book of dystopian road warrior art.George Miller spearheaded making the movie happen and also writes a great introduction to this work. The author Abbie Bernstein takes care of the rest of [...]

    20. An in-depth look at creating "Mad Max: Fury Road", from the initial planning stages, right up to production. Plenty of detailed illustrations and on-set photos, directors' and actors' commentary, and insights on plot and production from the producers.Great for fans of the movie, who want a closer look at production techniques and how the movie was made -- but might be a bit lacking for those who are looking for more insight on the world of Mad Max, and backstory of the characters. I guess there [...]

    21. Que lindo es tener un libro perfecto.De principio a fin, el libro es todo y mas de lo que esperabaa mi la película me encanto, pero cada pagina del libro es arte puro, desde la concepción de la película, de los personajes, los storyboards, las fotografías, los personajes, los carros, la cultura, el arte, la destrucción del mundoel libro te cuenta mil detalles que no viste, y Miller te cuenta porque están ahí.En detalles técnicos, el papel del libro es el mejor papel que he visto en much [...]

    22. Perfect accompaniment to a perfect film. It's great to read about how long and hard they worked to make the visceral awesomeness we see on screen. Which is not a surprise, of course, but it's great to take a breather from the frenetic action of the movie to enjoy the love and level of detail that went into it all. We also learn more about the characters like the "Doof Warrior" and his grisly past, concepts for Immortan, detailed storyboards and some brill stuff that's not in the film like The Bu [...]

    23. If you enjoyed Mad Max Fury Road, then this is definitely worth a look. It is very interesting to see the original designs for characters from the late 90s and compare them with the finished film. The book also has great stories from production staff about how they went about making the film including how the plot was devised, how stunts were coordinated, and how locations were chosen.All the illustrations and photographs in the book are gorgeous and well presented, so that the reader can make o [...]

    24. Anything detailing the production of this masterpiece is a gift, but this feels a little bit too much like a souvenir guide to the film. I wanted more storyboards and more detailed costume/weapons/vehicle designs - and expected them to be there, otherwise what's the point of this book? The pages like thIs that are present make it worthwhile - otherwise, not enough art for me for something titled "the art of"

    25. To say I loved Mad Max Fury Road is an understatement. I have seen it five times, bought the soundtrack and bought the two great books associated with the film. Mad Mad Fury Road: Inspired Artists Deluxe Edition and this book.The level of detail the creators of this film took to put this film together is astoundingFR is truly one of the most unique films of the year. This coffee table size book is a pleasure.

    26. Muy interesante y sobre todo visualmente. El libro se centra en los aspectos de la dirección de arte, efectos especiales y el paso de storyboard a imagen. Hay entrevistas con el director de arte y de fotografía, con guionistas, etc.Básicamente lo más impactante es ver cómo una historia que llevaba plasmada más de 20 años en diferntes papeles aquí y a allá, estaba toda en formato de storyboard antes de ponerse a rodar y les ha quedado exactamente lo que querían.

    27. An absolutely beautiful look at the production and planning of Fury Road. There are plenty of little info tidbits that really bring a deeper understanding of the film and story. A gorgeous look from conception to reality.
