The world has gone mad and it a visual delight. From worshipping shrines built from the carcasses of cars to driving headlong into a sandstorm that would give Hidalgo pause, the universe of Mad Max continues to be the best kind of bonkers.
And that soundtrack! There might not be laws, or sanity, or mercy. But there had better be batteries and/or tape decks for a “Guardians of the Galaxy” style musical montage. Using iconic music might be a cheap way to grab the audiences' emotional core by the fist, but done well it just adds another layer of enjoyment. Just don”t go TOO overboard with your new favorite trope, Hollywood.
According to the press release:
Haunted by his turbulent past, Mad Max believes the best way to survive is to wander alone. Nevertheless, he becomes swept up with a group fleeing across the Wasteland in a War Rig driven by an elite Imperator, Furiosa. They are escaping a Citadel tyrannized by the Immortan Joe, from whom something irreplaceable has been taken. Enraged, the Warlord marshals all his gangs and pursues the rebels ruthlessly in the high-octane Road War that follows.
The Warner Bros. film is directed by George Miller and stars Tom Hardy, Charlize Theron, Nicholas Hoult, Zoe Kravitz, Riley Keough, Hugh Keays-Byrne and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley.
