Mad Max: Fury Road has received nearly unanimous rave reviews so far, and part of its success is undeniably owed to its visual effects. We weren't as enthusiastic about the film, but even we couldn't dispute George Miller's visual genius. The combination of CGI and practical effects, with an emphasis on the latter, led to a spectacularly realized post-apocalyptic landscape, and now FX Guide has provided a series of before-and-after shots that demonstrate the amazing visual effects added in post-production.

The pictures show that the CItadel was one of the most CGI-heavy aspects of Mad Max's universe, particularly this comparison shot of the CGI in-progress, versus the final shot:
