Fury Road is the fourth installment in the Mad Max film franchise about a post-apocalyptic world that is terrorized by psychotic gangs who roam the desert wasteland in search of petrol for their tricked out vehicles of war. Thin on plot, though really not needing one, Max joins forces with Furiosa who attempts to steal away her leader’s five wives in a heavily armoured tanker truck. The ensuing chase by Immortan Joe and his army of followers makes up pretty much the entire running time of this lavishly deranged and ridiculously spectacular assault on the senses which will easily satisfy anyone who was remotely interested in seeing this long-awaited sequel (Klaus Ming May 2015).
