Actually, in a lot of ways it's cooler, because you're seeing dudes pull totally real badass moves.
Action movies! Boy, are they cool! But I recently found out that they are NOT DOCUMENTARIES and actually use something called "SPECIAL EFFECTS." That means that what comes out in the movie theater is NOT what went into the camera! I don't know how that works (SCIENCE??? / WIZARD???), but I DO know this: THE INTERNET has this COOL VIDEO of STUNTS, ETC that went into the camera for MAD MAX: FURY ROAD. I especially recommend the "STICK MEN" around the 2:55 mark.
ALSO, if you have never seen it, I recommend this "STUNT REHEARSAL" from SERENITY:
