George Miller brings forth the fourth spectacular scavenger-like action adventure addition to the Mad Max franchise. More of a continuation than a remake of its loosely related ancestors, this film is insanely intense, furiously entertaining and one of the most brilliant of its kind.
After casting Mel Gibson as Max in the first three films, the role has been passed onto Tom Hardy this time, who plays a lost Max, haunted by the ghost of his past. In a lawless post-apocalyptic civilisation where food, water and fuel are severely short, survivors live at the mercy of the tyrannical Immortan Joe. Max helps Furiosa (Charlize Theron) smuggle a group of rebels away from Joe's wasteland in the hope of finding home in the Greenlands. A high speed race breaks through the desert as the group is pursued by Joe's gang of scavengers.
Crazier than the previous films, this sequel goes that extra mile by depicting a god-like human organ harvesting ruler and his antisocial psychopathic nomad soldiers. Hardy beats the original icon as a scruffier and more insane Max. The car chase scenes in the desert and gravity defying stunts resemble the previous films but with magnified madness and visual effects accelerating with every scene. Semi-nudity, strong language and dusty desert scenes enhance the extremity of the film.
