A woman rebels against a tyrannical ruler in post apocalyptic Australia in search for her homeland with the help of a group of female prisoners, a psychotic worshiper, and a drifter named Max.
I had absolutely zero interest in seeing this movie, I hadn’t seen any of the previous three and had no interest in seeing this one but then I was told by a workmate that I had to watch it.
That, along with the fact that I have not heard one bad thing about it, convinced me to give it a go.
I understand all the hype now!
It’s dark and it’s twisted and also apocalyptic. Those devices the breeders (Immortan Joe's Wives) had attached to them and the whole milking scene were just some weird shit! The scenery is absolutely beautiful, all that sand, more sand and even… you guessed it… more sand.
The visual effects are amazing throughout the movie, especially the sand storm scene. The stunts are also worth a mention; the whole ‘pole cats’ scenes in the middle of a massive fight scene as well as The Doof Warrior are awesome.
I also loved the design of the rig, designed with things needed for the harsh terrain. There’s a scene in the film where it catches on fire before a grate is lowered into the ground to chuck sand over the fire and put it out.
It has an awesome cast of big and small actors, American and Australia, but most of my attention always was drawn to Charlize Theron as Furiousa!
This film is definitely worth a watch, even if you haven’t seen the previous films. It would also be something I would watch again and will probably even own at some point.
