Mad Max: Fury Road Stunts Are Insanely Real, Raw Footage Shows

You may have heard that lot of the action scenes in “Mad Max: Fury Road” were not digitally animated, but were actual live stunts. Still, while watching the movie, you may have comforted yourself with the thought that the stuntmen were not really in harms way all that much.

True, some CGI was employed to make the scenes look more dramatic than they actually were during the shooting. But it may come as a surprise how little. Raw footage of the movie unveils very real-looking explosions, very real speeds (allegedly 50 mph), and also real people doing some rather mad things.

Here’s some more raw footage, though in the first one you have to fast forward to the more dramatic parts.

And here’s the Behind the Scenes video, where you can also see some of the stunts:
