Two Happy Feet films. And it all led to one thing for George Miller: a new Mad Max film. After working so hard to get a new Mad Max made, it finally happened … and it sure is something special. Bringing in a cast of heavy hitters led by Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron, Miller’s Mad Max: Fury Road is 100% pure action, fun, and adrenaline. There hasn’t been anything quite like it to hit the big screen in a long time, if at all. Everything about the world Miller sets up feels real, from the non-CGI stunts (which are both incredible and insane) to the people who are just trying to survive in this barren wasteland.
Right from the start, Fury Road doesn’t hold anything back. A former highway patrolman, Max Rockatansky (Hardy) is looking down on what is left of civilization after several years of worldwide catastrophes. As Max drives away, he’s followed by a bloodthirsty gang that blows up his car, shaves him, tattoo’s him, and holds him captive as a universal blood bag. Immortan Joe (Keays-Byrne) is one of several gang leaders in these wastelands. One of the higher ups in his gang, Imperator Furiosa (Theron), heads out with several members of the gang on a gas run. Furiosa has other plans though as she’s taken something dear from Immortan Joe: his five wives that bear his children — The Splendid Angharad who is pregnant (Huntington-Whiteley), Capable (Keough), Toast the Knowing (Kravitz), The Dag (Lee), and Cheedo the Fragile (Eaton). What comes next is a two hour chase throughout the wastelands — and it’s something you won’t want to miss.
