Mad Max: Fury Road (2015)

Australia/US 120m, Colour
Director: George Miller; Cast: Tom Hardy, Charlize Theron, Nicholas Hoult, Hugh Keays-Byrne, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Riley Keough, Zoë Kravitz, Abbey Lee, Courtney Eaton

mad-max2015Fury 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).

    Yeah, it’s pretty much just a crazy mess of action. Bluntly, that’s exactly what I wanted out of it. I’m happy to watch a talky drama on my television at home, but if I’m paying money to sit in a theater, I want explosions and insane stunts. This was absolutely what I paid for, and I left the theater happy.

      There’s a lot of love for this movie, and though I was forced to see it in 3D, I enjoyed the spectacle as well. I wonder if it would be as popular without the history of the franchise?
