Whoa it's been a while since I wrote a movie review here! I watched Mad Max a few days ago with the bf, it was either this or the vague-sounding San Andreas. This review is gonna be pretty quick because, IMO, the film was a lot of flash.
The film is sent in the future where Earth is now a barren desert, water and oil are precious commodity and there are clans with names that sound like rock bands. Tom Hardy is Max, who teams up with Imperiosa Furiosa (played by Charlize Theron) to escape the clutches of a cult leader. There is a lot of fire, sand, trucks, white "drug addicts" and supermodels.
This is obviously not my kind of film, but there are some outstanding points, namely Charlize's performance and the soundtrack during the chase scenes. Tom Hardy seemed stiff and spoke little with his signature Bane voice. Even supporting cast Nicolas Hoult and Riley Keough (Elvis' granddaughter!) in their roles as a fledgling couple incited more empathy than Mad Max.
In any case, this film is not made for deep thinking. Just sit back and enjoy the ride and sounds; maybe we can take this as another example showing the importance of conserving the environment ;)
