Review

Our Score
Mad Max creator George Miller brings the futuristic franchise thundering back to life, a lot less lean but just as mean, more than three decades after Mel Gibson donned the leathers. Miller puts a feminist spin on it, too, by placing Charlize Theron in the driving seat as Furiosa while Max (this time played by Tom Hardy) is her wingman. They embark on what is essentially one big, bone-rattling chase through the desert to escape tribal leader Immortan Joe (Hugh Keays-Byrne who played Toecutter in the original 1979 film) and his hot-wheeled henchmen. Refreshingly, Miller keeps CGI to a minimum in favour of breathtaking choreographed stunts, but he does exploit modern cameras to weave between vehicles as they roar, crunch and groan with thrash-metal musicality. Theron's Furiosa is the beating heart at the centre of all this chaos. As well as being a formidable warrior, she's determined to find sanctuary for the women Immortan enslaved for breeding. Balancing her fury is the quietly magnetic Hardy, and if some fans are irked that he's riding shotgun, there's still more than enough machismo and machine-based mayhem to keep the adrenaline pumping.

Summary

A drifter in a post-apocalyptic wasteland encounters a crazed, sadistic warlord and his radiation-afflicted cult. He assists a warrior who has turned against the tyrant, and liberates five women who have been forced to become his brides. Together, they make a desperate journey through the desert to salvation, with their enemies in hot pursuit. Sci-fi thriller sequel, starring Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron.
