‘Mad Max: Fury Road’ was by far the best way to end my Memorial Day. This movie was visually stunning, fun, clever, ridiculous, and smart. The movie was about two rebels (Max Rockatansky and Imperator Furiosa) that are capable of restoring order while Imperator Furiosa looks to make it back to her homeland she once grew up in in one piece.
Tom Hardy was absolutely amazing as Max Rockatansky, a man of few words but got the job done. I am pretty sure this was the first time I have ever seen Tom Hardy in any movies and it won’t be the last.
Charlize Theron was amazing and tough as nails, so glad they picked her to play Imperator Furiosa. Anything Charlize Theron does just makes me happy, she is such a versatile actor.
My top favorite scenes in the movie had to be with Iota (The Doof Warrior). I seriously need to find him or someone like him, attach him to the hood of my car, and have him play his guitar all the time as I drive to work and the store. He was by far my favorite character next to Max Rockatansky, Imperator Furiosa, and Immortan Joe.
Hugh Keays-Byrne (Immortan Joe) was the epitome of everything a bad guy should be. He was terrifying, he was ruthless, and he had a Colgate smile, he was everything you want in a bad guy. Every time he came on screen, I would cringe and then smile, he was a monster.
If I ever end up in a stark desert landscape with a broken humanity, I know exactly what to do.
I sat through this whole movie just blown away by the stunts, these stunts were absolutely incredible. I have to learn how to do some of them or just hire a stunt double to do these stunts for me.
I also have to mention the music for the movie, each scene had the right type of music, the music definitely set the tone.
Overall this movie was one of best movies of 2015 so far, go see it now.
