Daaaaaaang, looks dope
Yeah, that looks pretty badass
One of the best action flicks ever made, even tops “The Road Warrior”!!!
(and check out the guitar rig in the screenshot)
That looks pretty bad ass. Everybody says the 3D is really well done, too.
Awesome action shots. Non of that shaky cam or quick cut edits. All beautiful steady held shots. Damn.
Not a lot of CGI either, mostly real stunts and explosions judging by the “Behind The Scenes” B reel on Youtube
And that flame thrower guitar is not just a prop, it’s working guitar!

Yeah I watched that right after the movie
Don’t watch until you see the movie…
Apparently quite a bit of CGI was done:
“George presented this as a non-VFX film, and it is pretty much a non-VFX film, except that we’ve touched almost everything. It’s contradictory. Most of the stunts are real and really extreme and visceral, and shocking some of them. I think we did about 20 shots where we had to put in digital stunt doubles. It was just too extreme for them to actually achieve in-camera.
We were given the ‘toxic storm’ sequence first, which is the big twisters and a very dark sequence. It was shot on a very open, flat, sunny desert, and we had to fill in every thing around it — dust blowing on the ground, dust that they drive through, and pretty much replace everything in the shot, including cars and actors. But because he cut it sequentially, we were given a scene at a time to work through. At any one time we had maybe three to four scenes running. In terms of breaking it down with any one type of shot, it wasn’t really possible to do that.
Obviously the storm was CGI, but the movie doesn’t have the feel of a CGI fest like say, The Avengers…it looks real, and painful from a stunt perspective.
Yeah saw it the other day
Man Conan must have a pretty big budget now…
