Short Review: 100 Words or Less (no spoilers)
This is the best Mad Max movie to date. The film is essentially one long chase scene through an apocalyptic desert, sprinkled with a few gaps to catch your breath. It’s so awesome. Charlize Theron is terrific as Furiosa and Tom Hardy takes over the iconic role of Max as if he owned it all along. Supporting cast is strong, particularly Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Zoë Kravitz, and Nicholas Hoult. The visuals and CGI are stunning and the action/chase sequences are stellar. It’s a wild and awesome ride from start to finish.
Final Grade: A-
