Mad Max: Fury Road

This summer, after thirty years away from the silver screen, audiences were treated to a new Mad Max adventure. George Miller, creator of the original trilogy, has rebooted his post-apocalyptic universe with Mad Max: Fury Road. Set in his familiar Australian wasteland, Miller once again introduces us to Max, (this time, played by Tom Hardy) a drifter who accompanies the rebel Furiosa (played by Charlize Theron) as she tries to escape from a warlord with several of his female prisoners. Free from the financial and technical limitations that restricted his vision for the original film, Miller has given us a modern take on good old-fashion action films. A sequel, entitled Mad Max: The Wasteland, has already been announced. Highly recommended.
