Mad Max: Fury Road

{5/5} “As the world fell, each of us in our own way was broken. It was hard to know who was more crazy: me or everyone else.”

Mad Max: Fury Road, released in 2015

In a post-apocalyptic wasteland Max survives. He’s haunted by the memories of people he couldn’t save, and he’s chased by scavengers. When the scavengers finally catch up to him he’s kidnapped and used as a blood bag. When Imperator Furiosa defects from Immortan Joe, Max might get a chance to escape in the chaos.

This is the 4th Mad Max movie, and the first one in 30 years. George Miller directed all of them, and Mel Gibson starred as Max is the first three.

If you want non-stop action, this is the movie for you. It’s very bold, showing you things they never would have showed you 30 years ago. As in Let Me In, the concept is taken to its logical conclusion.

As in Oblivion, this is a beautifully filmed apocalypse. The actors throw themselves into their roles with gusto.

It’s exciting — you’ll be on the edge of your seat. Aside from knowing Max will survive, anything could happen.

The stunts are astonishing and the Namibian scenery is breathtaking.

Stars Charlize Theron, Tom Hardy, and Nicolas Hoult. Directed by George Miller (Babe: Pig in the City). The relentless music is by Tom Holkenborg aka Junkie XL.
