Mad Max: Fury Road

If you like high speed car chases in movies you are in for a treat. This movie features the longest car/truck high speed chases sequences that you have ever seen or are likely to see as well as some of the best. It is action packed and comes complete with explosions, tumbling cars and trucks and tons of spinning, twisting, tumbling human beings being crushed by trucks and any other motorized vehicles you can think of.
Tom Hardy is a different Mad Max but very competent to Gibson's Max who is mostly running on adrenaline to avenge his family's murders. Tom Hardy is just trying to stay alive in this one so his motivation is a little different but heck killing bad guys is killing bad guys, right?
Charlize Theron is superb in her role of saviour of others in order to gain redemption for the many demons she seems to be carrying around. Nicholas Hoult is fast becoming a fan favourite and he adds to his growing fandom with his role as Nux, a seriously demented nut job.
The only critique I'll give the movie is that I thought they could have made the villains worse than they are so that the audience would become more vested in the heroes. Having said that, it's a minor point as this movie is really all about the visuals and they are terrific. There are some scenes that are just surreal and need to be seen. In this way I thought it was much better than the original Mad Max movies.
Watch it if you like lot's of action and you'll love it.
