5 Stars-One of the greatest action films of recent times, and a worthwhile addition to the Mad Max mythology. I would deem it the second best Mad Max AFTER The Road Warrior starring Mel Gibson. Action films can be well executed, thrilling and intelligent and this film succeeds on all fronts- George Miller does it again.

what putrid shit. really, I thought I was watching a bunch of methamphetamine freaks cavorting evilly around. who needs that? who likes that? the story is simple enough, as are speed junkies.

I don't think I'll ever get over the final shot of this movie. It's a masterpiece of its genre.

Even after two viewings, I feel as though I've only scratched the surface of Mad Max: Fury Road. George Miller's action fantasy is astonishingly dense for a big-budget spectacle, not only in its imagery and ideas but in the complex interplay between them.

Mad Max: Fury Road was financed by the Koch Brothers along with this summer's big blockbuster, Wonder Woman. Continued support of films like these lines the pockets of villainous men. Watch Maudie if you want to see an inspiring film about a real, and Canadian, woman.

I could pick at the odd awkward moment and the general implausibility of this world, but this is Mad Max: love it or leave it. If you have a problem with its message, that's on you. Action, design, acting, stunts are all wonderful, and its simple story is perfectly told. Fury Road respects its viewers enough to fill in gaps with their own imagination, and leave them wanting more. You wouldn't think there'd be room for much character development in an almost continuous chase movie, but Nicholas Hoult is touching and innocent as War Boy Nux. "I live, I die, I live again...."

Five EPIC Stars. Director George Miller has unleashed a grand-looking $150 Million budgeted epic SciFi movie. This gritty, bloody, action-adventure movie, "Mad Max-Fury Road" is set in the bleak, dystopian future world as were the three previous Mad Max movies which starred Mel Gibson. Society is no better off now than before as everything is scarce and it has collapsed into smaller, brutal, socio-economic communities. Max, played excellently by Tom Hardy, haunted by events from his past, is pursued by a group which wants him. Meanwhile, Furiosa, a high-ranking female who is played with abandon by Oscar-winner Charlize Theron, sets off on a bloody run down Fury Road that will lead straight into adventure, spectacular battles, amazing-looking vehicles, and mind-boggling mechanical assemblages, amid some awesome physical stunts in these desert vistas.

I really wanted to like this movie, and yet still was disappointed just the same. It had nothing to do with the strong performances of Hardy and Theron .. the plot is bleak and grimy. What a wonderful future our kids have in store!! Another action movie with lots of blow up but no sense of how this can be or that can happen. Still prefer Mel's original version ...

Action doesn't stop virtually entire length of movie! Most action scenes are REAL and NOT CGI'd! Ending credits list virtually HUNDREDS of Auto Mechanics and Technicians who built the dozens of futuristic road vehicles, making Star Wars Credits a bit jealous!

Check out the Movie Extras and Behind The Scenes in the making (DVD2) is also fascinating!

Max self-intro: My name is Max. My world is fire and blood. Once, I was a cop. A road warrior searching for a righteous cause. As the world fell, each of us in our own way was broken. It was hard to know who was more crazy... me... or everyone else. ... I am the one that runs both from the living and the dead. Hunted by scavengers, haunted by those I could not protect. So I exist in this wasteland, reduced to one instinct: survive.
===
Furiosa: Hey. What's your name? What do I call you?
Max: Does it matter?
Furiosa: Fine. When I yell "fool," you drive out of here as fast as you can.
