Mad Max: Fury Road
About Mad Max: Fury Road
Director George Miller takes his adrenalized action epic The Road Warrior and injects it with an unholy supercharged mix of psychotropics and nitroglycerin. The result is Mad Max: Fury Road; no less combustible than Road Warrior but filmed with a hallucinatory fever dream zeal. In contrast to the near non-stop action sequences are sensitive, muted performances from Charlize Theron as the one-armed warrior Imperator Furiosa, broken in body but not in spirit, and Nicholas Hoult as Nux, an enslaved soldier who turns insurgent. Tom Hardy takes over from Mel Gibson as Max.
