Brief Synopsis:
The character of Max Max Rockatansky is entirely removed from the movie. The only leftover is a random, nameless 'blood bag' strapped to Nux's car in the first part of the movie. Apart from that - he's gone. And the story still makes perfect sense :)
Intention:
I totally love that movie. But I've always felt this movie isn't exactly about Max. And one day, to prove my point, I decided to do a fanedit (didn't know the term then) and entirely remove his character from the film. And I did it. As I mentioned above, the story proved to still make sense without him.
Additional Notes:
I used only editing tools (cutting, reframing, stretching and speeding up shots), no vfx. The closest to VFX was one shot graded from day to night.
Special Thanks:
Thanks to TM2YC for guidance, advice and patience in the process of getting my fanedit towards approval.
And to my wife for patience and understanding that sometimes I just need to do something creative like this :)

MP4/M4V/MOV
Editing Details:
I used the 4K Blu Ray as a base, which allowed me to crop up to 200% into shots and still be able to deilver the final edit in 1080p. For some shots I used pixel motion type algorythms (eg. optical flow i Adobe Premiere) to slow them down or even went as far as animate a still (by adding film grain / noise and slight camera zoom in or out). For one shot i graded it day to night and added stars to the sky.

Really cool edit. The ending drags a little editted this way, but the story overall works better. After all, this was a movie about the driver, not the blood bag. There were a few zoomed in / cropped shots that looked obvious, but that was mostly when people were standing around talking. The editing of the action was almost perfect, just the odd shot of Max's foot or leg while someone else was kicking ass. The ONLY thing I really missed was the fist fight between Max and the driver, it might be my favorite scene in the movie. But I can't dock a no-Max edit for not including a Max fight.

I wouldn't call this a replacement, but I don't think that was the goal anyway. I would recommend watching this to get the most out of the STORY of Fury Road with 90% of the action intact.

before watching this fanedit i was doubtful that removing max from the movie would leave the movie with massive plot holes and continuity errors, but boy was i wrong,the edit is near flawless with both story and audio intact. the story is fast paced and is cut in a way that if you didnt know that max was originally in the the movie you could never tell,the movie turned from a hero saving women from a tyrant into a movie about women turning against a tyrant and befriending a former tyrant underling. a pure joy to watch.

Great edit, and I think proves its point. The plot still makes sense, and the film is totally watchable. I only found some minor details that hint where an edit was done, but I'm sure someone that does not know this movie would totally eat it.
