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.

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.

Fury Road is a defiantly individual riposte to those committee-led blockbusters which are built on CGI and designed to sell toys.

Believe all the hype: This movie will melt your face off.

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.

An A-plus B-movie that at times feels almost like a tone poem to early-'80s excess, a cross between a monster-truck rally and a Plasmatics concert.

A gorgeous, scrap-metal demolition derby of a popcorn picture.

For anyone who denied that Titus Andronicus could ever be mashed up with The Cannonball Run, here is your answer, and we are only too happy to follow Nux as he cries, "What a lovely day!," and accelerates into a whirlwind of fire.
May 15, 2015
Fury Road is also one of the best action movies of the decade, a punk Last Judgment with manic invention and depraved wit on display in every frame.
May 15, 2015
Miller has the dubious distinction of essentially creating the post-apocalyptic action genre, and in this film, set some 40 years after the fall of the world, he outdoes himself.
May 15, 2015
A double-barrelled shotgun enema straight to the senses, George Miller's Mad Max: Fury Road is an exercise in relentless, pedal-to-the-metal momentum that can only qualify as savagely pleasurable.
May 15, 2015
There's no great meaning here - it's a basic story of rebellion and redemption. But there's such energy and visual invention in a world so fully realized and dazzling that the roller coaster ride is more than enough on its own.
May 15, 2015
This summer's blockbuster offerings may be setting box office records, yet seem like holograms when compared with this weighty offering.
May 14, 2015
Two hours of action scenes that are well crafted and entirely lacking in suspense, and with some clever but fake-looking special effects.
May 14, 2015
There's enough horror remixed here -- of the Heart of Darkness version -- to engage our current moment. That should be one of the obligations of a reboot.
May 14, 2015
Mad Max: Fury Road provokes the same question from its audience again and again: What can you show me next? The answer is always the same: Something even more outlandish and imaginative than what you just saw.

A kinetic, hallucinatory, boldly feminist chase flick that, with its vibrant color palette, harrowing stunt work and show-don't-tell style of yarn-spinning, leaves every Marvel movie and every Fast & Furious in its irradiated dust.
May 14, 2015
It's a pitiless, primitive, primal world [Miller's] built - from its medicine to its religion to its tribal diplomacy - and it's wondrous to behold.
May 14, 2015
The "Mad Max" franchise was never for everyone, yet it clearly benefits from fresh blood, too. Propelled by Miller's nitro-burning aesthetic vision and an entertaining cast, this turbo-charged new model is a gas, gas, gas.
