All hail Max. An action film seldom stays with you once you leave the movie hall. Despite all the box office numbers and the hype most action movies are just a passing fad. But every decade has it’s own set of movies which re-define the action genre. Mad Max is one of them. Quite possibly one of the best action flicks in recent times if not the best.
It does take a while to get going. But once it does it just pulls you in. There are enough wow moments to keep you glued to the screen till the end credits roll. The plot – A survivor’s quest for freedom.
Tom Hardy – My beloved bane comes back with an awesome performance. No style, no class just raw energy. The real surprise of the film though was Charlize Theron as Furiosa. For those who have seen Monster her acting credentials are nothing new. She’s proved time and again that she can lit the screen on fire with some jaw dropping performances. But Mad Max will hold a special place. She’s neck and neck with Tom Hardy in terms of performances and at times overshadows him.
George Miller returns with yet another instalment of his Mad Max Franchise and gives us a cult classic. A special applause for the vintage action sequences and the crazy music by Junkie XL.
Mad Max Fury Road – Give it your time and you won’t regret. Strictly on the big screen only.
My rating – 8/10.
