“Grim never looked so good!”
Fury Road brings jaw-dropping dystopian landscapes, and you gotta hand it to the people who dreamed them up. The first storm sequence of the movie which Furiosa enters on the large gasoline truck is just WOW! This movie is about a very grim future, but boy does it look great! Hope hasn’t looked so good, and despair so sickening. Theron’s Furiosa is a driven individual with hope, hope for a home where she was born, the land of the Mothers. She is one of the prize breeders of Immortan Joe. In fact, all women have been reduced to just that in this world. Furiosa escapes with the rest of Joe’s prize breeders, and we get this chase of a movie. I personally favour movies with CGI that blends with the environment so much so that it doesn’t look like CGI anymore, and Mad Max Fury Road achieves that, and I love it.

George Miller is a visionary. Good performances all around also help. Hugh Keays-Byrne’s Immortan Joe is adequate and played with appropriate fury! Theron’s Furiosa drives the movie, and the parts that she doesn’t, Tom Hardy’s Max and Nicholas Hoult’s Nux take up the job. Overall, a great movie, definitely worth a watch.
