  • Happy end of the world.

  • Mad Max: Fury Road delivers. There's no clearer or more succinct way to put it. 30 years after last appearing on the big screen, Max roars back with a vengeance.

    May 23, 2015 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Even after two viewings, I feel as though I've only scratched the surface of Mad Max: Fury Road. George Miller's action fantasy is astonishingly dense for a big-budget spectacle, not only in its imagery and ideas but in the complex interplay between them.

    May 22, 2015 | Rating: 4/4 | Full Review…
  • Fury Road is a defiantly individual riposte to those committee-led blockbusters which are built on CGI and designed to sell toys.

    May 17, 2015 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Believe all the hype: This movie will melt your face off.

    May 16, 2015 | Rating: 4/4 | Full Review…
  • I saw it twice and liked it vastly more the second time around, when I'd adjusted my expectations and had my bearings from the get-go. Then it became about digging the spectacle - not to mention the hilarious sexual politics.

Audience Reviews for Mad Max: Fury Road

I'm not a fan of the Mad Max franchise, but "Fury Road" was excellent! "Mad Max: Fury Road" has a decent story (albeit with plot holes aplenty) and interesting characters with marvelous costume, makeup and special effects. It's truly spectacular.

This sequel and reboot of the classic action franchise brings Mad Max soaring vigorously back to life with a two hour action extravaganza that puts everything attempted in the original trilogy to shame. The original Mad Max trilogy was gritty and violent, but compared to the colorful landscapes and gorgeous scenery of Fury Road it looks like a totally different franchise. If this was the true vision of George Miller I'm glad he finally was able to put it on screen. My only complaint is that Tom Hardy's Max is not nearly as charismatic as Mel Gibson was in the original trilogy. I didn't connect with him like I did in the others, but luckily Max is more of a supporting character in this one that the main focus. Charlize Theron's Furiosa is more of the main lead and adds a great character and female action hero to cinema history. I also really enjoyed Nicholaus Hoult as Nux and Hugh Keays-Byrne return to the franchise with a memorable villain in Immortan Joe. If you like action movies, there's not reason not to watch the indescribable carnage George Miller has concocted with Fury Road.

George Miller unleashes a feverish, ferocious film and it's an intense wild ride. Acrobatic "Mad Max: Fury Road" is thrilling and treats the audience to some astonishing action sequences. But the action doesn't dull the emotional impact and that's mainly due to Charlize Theron's fierce performance. "Mad Max: Fury Road" is a ride worth taking. Wall-to-wall pumped-up adrenalized fun, it's ridiculously good.

George Miller's Mad Max: Fury Road is one of the most, lush and vivid movies I've seen in a long time. The cinematography for this film is an absolute marvel- showcasing the sprawling outback desert through hues of oranges and reds during the daytime, contrasting it with beautiful midnight blues at night. All this comes together to give the movie a very lively atmosphere. The score alleviates the sense of rush and is smartly used diegetically as well as non-diegetically. The action scenes are shot brilliantly with minimal special effect, furthering its case as a masterpiece. Finally the acting especially that of Charlize Theron as Imperator Furiosa is top-notch and no character is left needing further characterisation. Tom Hardy's Max is a man of little words, but the performances are so strong that the movie doesn't need dialogue in order to flourish. This movie is definitely not hyped up- go see it and then go see it again. Rating: 5/5
