OUR REVIEW & RATING ★★★★★
Neither a straightforward remake or reboot, Mad Max: Fury Road quotes are more of an explosive epic reimagining. The premise is set in a post-apocalyptic world where humanity is broken and everyone is crazed fighting for the necessities of life. Within this world exists two rebels, former cop/drifter and a man of few words haunted by the past, the family he never saved, Max Rockatansky; and Furiosa, a woman of action being pursued by the dictatorial Wasteland leader Joe. When Furiosa reaches out to Max for help to break free Joe’s ‘Five Wives’, and to take them to her childhood homeland, Joe and his War Boys set off in pursuit of them sending them into a bloody game of survival.
The script provides everything you need to know about the character and plot without everything being revealed through dialogue and heavily dependent on the visual imagery. The action is unrelenting, a visual feast that’s bursting with imagination and creating a sense of high stakes.
All the performances are solid with Tom Hardy being perfectly cast as Max, bringing in a great physical performance with a lot of depth and complexity without saying a word. Theron as Furiosa is equally outstanding, kicking as much ass as Hardy and playing her part with strength and vulnerability. Nicholas Hoult as Nux is also worth a mention as he really brings gravity and heart to his character.
Verdict: Completely uninhibited and explosive with a great depth of content even though not much dialogue is actually spoken. This is a welcomed revitalization to the Mad Max franchise.

my half-life War Boys who will ride with me eternal on the highways of Valhalla. I am your redeemer! It is by my hand you will rise from the ashes of this world!
[the crowd cheers]

The Wretched #2: Yes. Yes. Yes. It’s comin’.
[the desperate looking crowd make their way forward carrying their pots and pans, Joe pushes some levers which releases a large amount of water, everyone rushes in to get some, Joe then cuts off the water supply]

[Furiosa doesn’t reply]
The Ace: Bullet farm?
Imperator Furiosa: We’re heading east.

Miss Giddy: They are not your property.
Immortan Joe: Miss Giddy?
Miss Giddy: You cannot own a human being! Sooner or later someone pushes back!
Immortan Joe: Where is she taking them?!
Miss Giddy: She didn’t take them! They begged her to go!
[Joe walks over to Giddy who’s got a gun pointed at him, just as she’s about to shoot he pulls the weapon up and grabs her]

[Joe pulls her]
