This film is just awesome in every way.
Just to clarify, this is not a direct sequel to the original three "Mad Max" films but rather the start of a new series featuring the "Mad Max" character. So you should not be terribly confused if you haven't seen the older ones.
The storyline, while it's the fourth installment in a series, is quite unique and creative. It is also very well thought out and compelling. I like the characters. Just like in the older films, Max is likeable and a really cool protagonist. Joe is an awesome villain. I like Nux. He is quite an entertaining antihero. Furiosa is also likeable and I actually had feelings for her as well as those other women that Ally Max. I like the chemistry between Max and Furiosa.
I think all the actors and actresses played their roles very respectively. Tom Hardy is surprisingly great as Max. He's not Mel Gibson but he's about as close to another "Mad Max" as you're going to get. I liked Nicholas Hoult as Nux as well as Charlize Theron as Furiosa. I also think that Hugh Keays-Byrne did an awesome job as Joe.
As usual, George Miller did an incredible job diecting. It's visually stunning and the action scenes are stylish and downright intense and really keep you at the edge of your seat. It is action packed but still leaves room for a well constructed storyline. I like the design, costumes and make-up as well as the setting. Also, the film is-what some people would not expect-funny at times.
I loved that guitar guy.
There is not a single thing about this film that I did not like.
Overall, I thought Fury Road was an awesome film and it just might be the best film in the "Mad Max" series (besides "The Road Warrior"). I highly recommend this to fans of action flicks.
Mad Max: Fury Road is now in theaters.
