I would have to admit that “Mad Max Fury Road” is the first of George Miller’s Mad Max movies that I have seen and I wasn’t disappointed at all. From beginning to end Fury Road is packed with action and great special effects.
The movie takes place in an apocalyptic earth and all that survived from the world which we know are very fast cars. Men still rule the world by controlling the natural resources, which in this case is water and oil — sounds familiar. In this edition of the Mad Max series we are introduced to Furiosa, played by Charlize Theron, who defies the ruler of Citadel by escaping with the wives of Immortan Joe, played by Hugh Keays-Burn, in search of a town filled with hope and life. During her escape she encounters Mad Max, Tom Hardy, who unwillingly helps her in her journey to freedom; nevertheless along the way they encounter many different obstacles which keep the momentum alive in the movie.
If you are looking for a heavy narrative movie or a movie that has a deeper meaning Mad Max is not it—this movie is pure entertainment. Thanks to the direction of George Miller and the great special effects this movie will keep all moviegoers enticed. Seeing “Mad Max Fury Road” in 3D is a plus. It will have you moving from side to side avoiding getting hit by flying objects.
