Winner of six Academy Awards and over 250 international awards, the fourth outing in the Mad Max film series defied expectations with its mesmerizing display of brilliantly-executed style and vision, technical mastery, exhilarating non-stop action, surprisingly provocative narrative, and a new action heroine for the ages. In a harsh desert wasteland, Max (Tom Hardy) finds himself in the middle of a deadly pursuit when Imperator Furiosa (Charlize Theron), a woman hellbent on escaping tyrannical leader Immortan Joe and leading her female companions to a life free of slavery, sets out on a daring escape mission. With the fury of Immortan Joe’s army behind them, and a deadly desert filled with even more violent marauders ahead of them, the unlikely heroes make some surprising discoveries about themselves and the world around them as they race for survival.
“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.” – Ben Sachs, Chicago Reader
“Mad Max: Fury Road delivers. There’s no clearer or more succinct way to put it. Thirty years after last appearing on the big screen, Max roars back with a vengeance.” – James Berardinelli, ReelViews
“In the end, Miller has done it and done it righteously, reimagining a sturdy franchise and living up to the original, while kicking the tired reboot to the curb. Fury Road is rife with activity and fertile with ideas.” – Tom Meek, ARTery
