Max (Tom Hardy) is back in Mad Max: Fury Road and The Earth is still one giant, hellish, post-apocalyptic mess. This time around, though, Max seems to have bitten more off than he can chew. Desperate to put his failures and mental demons behind him, he wanders the vast deserts aimlessly until he is overtaken by a tribe of zealots under the command of a cruel warlord, Immortan Joe (Hugh Keays-Byrne), who is worshiped as a god. His legacy is threatened, however, when his greatest warrior, Imperator Furiosa (Charlize Theron) steals five of his greatest assets. These prizes are up for grabs and the victor is he who endures the race to the end!
This movie was great action wise, but as for its plot--it needs some work. I have seen previous installments of the Mad Max franchise and they definitely told more of a story. This film, however, was kind of all over the place. One minute we are dealing with kamikaze foot soldiers and before you can blink we are racing into a sandstorm, and then we are trekking to a “Green Place.” The true plot of the film is not revealed until the end and even then it is truly a Pyrrhic Victory as both sides suffer dearly. I have no doubt there will be another installment in the franchise. Let us just hope the next one is better!
