Mad Max: Fury Road (2015)


Tom Hardy
Charlize Theron
Nicholas Hoult
Hugh Keays-Byrne

Directed by George Miller

Mad Max is a film you have to see, it starts on a high settles on a plain for a trot and goes even higher. Mad Max: fury Road maintains a high pace (after its trot of introducing the cast) as we watch a chase between a group of survivors and their previous captors.

It is not often we see the lead actor play a supportive role in his movie, but here Max was more like a passerby in the sea of chaos. Charlize Theron was the best part of this movie, her portrayal as the life saver of the captive is one I will remember her by for years to come. The movie script is well done, it reminded me of Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior (1981) and this movie (Fury Road) is the best Mad Max movie in the franchise.

Mad Max 4, is not actually a reboot of the Mad Max franchise and it bears no form of continuity either. George Miller tells that the story took place after Mad Max: Thunderdome (1985) and he wants us to look at each Mad Max movie as the "legend of the Road Warrior" each one bearing no continuity to the other, just stories of Max Rockatansky.

Mad Max was conceived by George Miller in 1979, and he has directed and written Mad Max movies in the series, and in the last two he was also the producer. The movies are a post-apocalyptic action films which Mel Gibson starred as the title character "Mad" Max Rockatansky in the first three movies, and here he is being replaced by Tom Hardy.

The movie starts with the capture of Max and he being used as a blood bag for the sick warrior boy Nux (Nicholas Hoult).
If you are familiar with the Mad Max movies you will know that the world is now a vast wasteland after a nuclear war destroyed everything good. Everywhere people move in groups driving fast cars and bikes, water and fuel are scarce commodity and they are craved for.

The captors Joe, was surprised when he discovered one of his lead riders Imperator Furiosa (Charlize Theron) had gone off track running away with his fives wives he selected for breeding. He starts a pursuit to retrieve his wives and kill their captors. Max escapes from Nux and joins Furiosa as she and the five girls try to make escape from Joe and his team.

This movie will definitely spring forth more, as it is a critical and financial success. You have to see Mad Max 4.
