What: Movie Review
Who: Mad Max: Fury Road
When: Summer 2015
Why: The 4th Film in the Trilogy
Just when you thought things were calming down in movie land, here comes another Mad Max film. Original director George Miller returns to the franchise he created more than 30 years ago with Mel Gibson. The new film, titled Fury Road, stars Tom Hardy as Mad Max and Charlize Theron as Furiosa.
First thing's first. Fury Road is unlike anything you've ever seen on screen before. It's as if George Miller bundled his awaiting thoughts and eagerness for 25 years in order to finally complete his dream project, and the result is fascinating. Some of the scenes of the movie are mesmerizing, including the ones during the dust storm.
The special effects are stunning and over the top, a definition that the whole movie earns within the first ten minutes of watching it.
It's non stop action from the very first scene to the last, making you absolutely glued to your seat.
The one thing bad about Fury Road is that there is almost too much action, if that's a thing. It would be nice to actually have a breather once in a while in the film. Other then that, Fury Road is a near perfect film.
Tom Hardy does an excellent job playing Max, but of course as anyone would have guessed the acting highlight of the film goes to Theron, who does an even better job playing Imperator Furiosa.
The best thing about Fury Road is that it's a classic Mad Max film. The road chase scenes are an instant reminder of the first two films, especially The Road Warrior.
Even though it's insanely violent, you won't have more fun at the movies this summer. Mad Max is a must see for any die hard action fans.
