Mad Max: Fury Road

Mad Max: Fury Road

Action, Adventure, Thriller

In a stark desert landscape where humanity is broken, two rebels just might be able to restore order: Max, a man of action and of few words, and Furiosa, a woman of action who is looking to make it back to her childhood homeland.

The critical consensus

With such incessant and vivid action, there is very little time given us to worry about the creakiness in the plotting.

Charlize Theron joins Hardy’s lone wolf ex-cop in George Miller’s deliriously strange action adventure, a rollicking Grand Theft Auto revamped by Hieronymous Bosch.

****(*)Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian, 11/05/2015

The antithesis to dour dystopias, this belated fourth instalment in the Mad Max franchise puts the fun back in fucked-up futures as it delivers precision-executed lunacy, alongside a generous helping of heart.

****(*)Emma Simmonds, The List, 12/05/2015

It makes the other Mad Max films seem, in retrospect, like demo reels for the kinetic rush of this chase epic.

*****Josh Slater-Williams, The Skinny, 12/05/2015

Imagine a movie where Tom Hardy is the point of calm. Max’s re-enfranchisement is a triumph of barking-mad imagination, jaw-dropping action, crackpot humour, and acting in the face of a hurricane.

*****Ian Nathan, Empire Online, 11/05/2015

Perfect or not, however, Fury Road remains endlessly unique, exhilarating and unpredictable. Luckily for us, George Miller just might be madder than Max is.

*****Patrick Harley, TVBomb, 13/05/2015

Ozploitation on a studio budget? Oh what a day! A lunatic vision, as hilarious as it is hellish. And some of the greatest action ever put on screen.

*****Jamie Graham, Total Film, 11/05/2015

A fitting franchise addition that's full of surprises.

****(*)Adam Woodward, Little White Lies, 15/05/2015

For vehicular mayhem, it certainly can’t top the latest Fast and Furious. Still, for those who, like Hardy and were mere babes when the original was released it may have a novelty factor older viewers find missing.

***(*)(*)Henry Fitzherbert, Sunday Express, 17/05/2015

There is much to enjoy about this adrenaline-fuelled reboot, but two hours of relentless action can get a bit tiresome.
