‘Mad Max: Fury Road’

mmfr-epic-poster-galleryMad Max: Fury Road is visually stunning, with excitement pumped to the max (excuse the pun) that leaves you breathless. There’s no doubt that director George Miller, in this Australian-American co-production, has achieved an extraordinary updating of his original Mad Max films from the 1980s (also known as The Road Warrior in some countries).

But… I yearned for significant human interaction on screen that softened the frenetic chase across the desert. It is reported that not all was well on set between the two leads – and the lack of chemistry between Charlize Theron (Monster, Prometheus) and Tom Hardy (The Dark Knight Rises, Inception) shows.

Whilst an impressive piece of film making, ultimately felt bombarded and a little disappointed. (And Furious Furiosa would have been a more appropriate title – this is Charlize Theron’s movie).
