Mad Max: Fury Road

It’s been many years since the downfall of man, Max Rockatansky (Tom Hardy) has been staying alive purely on his survival instincts and strength to never give up; meanwhile, Imperator Furiosa (Charlize Theron), an equally tough and rebellious woman has found her way into the good graces of the intimidating and controlling Immortan Joe (Hugh Keays-Byrne). But, when Furiosa gets the idea to return to her birthplace with five of Joe’s unfetid wives, all hell is about to break loose. By chance, Max and Furiosa find each other, strangers, but common goals, will the two be able make it out alive?madmax Following the same trajectory as his original Mad Max, Writer/Director George Miller has done what might have been thought to be the impossible– a sequel to a franchise that began over 30 years ago that isn’t a re-boot, but is an honest sequel. A sequel worthy of high praise for its political and social subtext despite the existence of almost any dialogue. Examining feminism, religion, faith, and politics to name a few topics of consideration Miller has created a thinly veiled mirror to his world view but done with extreme theatrics. Goofy but still surprisingly relevant throughout; and, get ready for real explosions, the film is based largely in practical effects as opposed to CGI, it’s all about that action, Action, ACTION! Worthy of your time this weekend, it’s a monster. Mad Max: Fury Road is rated R.
