Mad Max Fury Road


The Mad Max franchise captures the heartless minds of every petrolheads since the first one came in the late 1970's because of its unique storyline, ruthless cast of characters, terrifying vehicles that turned into instruments of death in the dystopian future, and of course, the adrenaline delivered from the first three movies. Amazingly, it was the Aussie-built Ford Falcon that wowed our hearts and minds and when everyone talked about the classic Ford Falcon, they can only think of the Mad Max movies.

After thirty years, at last, the story of Mad Max has been reborn to the new generation of car lovers and movie lovers alike, hoping that one day, their cars will be just like what they saw in this film, packed with terrifying stunts, terrifying cast of characters, unique storyline that traces its roots from the original, and a new Mad Max in the form of actor Tom Hardy.

Like in the original Mad Max movies, it's set in a dystopian future where humanity has declined and people are now behaving like animals, fighting to survive the wasteland. This movie also stars Mighty Joe Young's Charlize Theron as Furiosa and Warm Bodies' Nicholas Hoult as the maniacal Nux, among many others.

Keeping true to the past installments, the recipe for destructive carnage still remains but now with some added explosions that will keep moviegoers wanted for more. "What a lovely day" it is but despite its added thrills for the newborn action thriller flick, there are some questionable stuff going on around here.

Past Mad Max films feel more Australian because of its outback setting fit enough to portray a post-nuclear wasteland but now, it doesn't feel like it set on the outback anymore but rather a more distant landscape which is suitable for the wasteland that is a lot different than the past films. Outback or not, the different landscape didn't really matter in the storyline that is worth terrifying than the past installments.

Here's the thing. If you watch this film for the first time, make sure that this is your first and last thing you watched because this film feels more traumatizing as disaster flicks but if you're brave and looking for some thrills, for you, this film is the epitome of hardcore and once you finished watching this film, you would really come back to see it again for some more.

In conclusion, this film is not suitable for killjoys or buzzkills but for people who had some fun times, this is the one to watch. You can count on it.

My rating: 4.7 out of 5.
