In the fourth part of the legendary “Mad Max” franchise – Mad Max: Fury Road, only the Mad Survive. You won’t find a more perfect demonstration of how it’s done than in George Miller’s masterfull, full-throttle, postapocalyptic thriller.
Set in an energy-scarce, dustbowl apocalyptic future, Australia has become a place where nothing is what it was, a wasteland ruled by outlaws hoarding fuel, water and other resources, place where a terrible street fighting has erupted. Place where filling up with fuel can cost a life. Place where mankind fell and almost everyone is forced to lead a mad scramble for the necessary for survival.
Desperate to escape a tyrant called Immortan Joe, Max Rockatansky joins forces with Imperator Furiosa, who is fleeing from Joe and his fanatical followers with a precious cargo that she has smuggled from Joe’s stronghold. Enraged, the Warlord marshals all his gangs and pursues the rebels ruthlessly in the high-octane Road War that follows.
The movie nearly swept all the below-the-line categories, including Best Costume Design, Production Design, Makeup & Hairstyling, Film Editing, and both Sound Mixing and Editing.
The fourth outing has Tom Hardy cast as Max, Charlize Theron as the formidable head of a group called the Five Wives and Hugh Keays Byrne, a bad guy in the first Mad Max, as Fury Road’s main villain.
