Mad Max: Fury Road

mad max fury roadI’ve never seen a film set-up as a precursor to a video game so intentionally as I have with the new Mad Max incarnation. Mad Max: Fury Road stars Tom Hardy in the Max role originated by Mel Gibson. Charlize Theron co-stars with Hardy. The styling was interesting for the first 10 minutes or so. After that, it was Monster Trucks meets Burning Man and not in a good way. Too many explosions. Too much violence. Too much orchestrated, over-the-top theatrics. And not much in the way of a plot. I suppose that’s the point. Kill or be killed. They even showed the video game trailer right before the film began. Perfect timing. 1 out of 5 for Mad Max: Fury Road. Definitely not my style. Next.
