An image from Mad Max: Fury Road
Review: Mad Max: Fury Road is a thrilling, ferocious and visually spectacular film that seizes the audience in a choke-hold from start to finish. Whilst the assumption from the trailer may be that this is a typical, violence-driven, almost plotless action movie, the actors give their characters a power and integrity that adds depth and emotion to the film, which in turn gives the constant, unrelenting action meaning and purpose. The cinematics are truly stunning throughout, with immense dust storms and guitars that belch fire, coming together in an explosion of sound and colour that makes it a film worth watching purely for the incredible visuals. Charlize Theron is fantastic in her starring role as Furiosa alongside Tom Hardy as the eponymous Max, and her determination and hope leads the audience to root for her in her quest to save the wives of Immortan Joe from his dictatorial rule. The pitiful existence of Nicholas Holt as Nux, with his neck tumours named Larry and Barry, provokes even more empathy for the characters trapped in the desolate wasteland. Mad Max: Fury Road is an extraordinary post-apocalyptic sensation of a movie, and one that anyone who loves intensity and drama, especially fans of the original franchise, should see.
