It is a post apocalyptic world where even the basic requirements like clean water and air for human existence is getting rare. Man has gone back to his scavenger ways but there is an unrest happening led by a female warrior who is assisted by drifter named Max.
This is a film for people who have a taste for apocalyptic films. Films having brutality and madness of a certain degree in its core which is not everybody cup of tea. It is also a treat for people who have loved the mad Max series in the past as this film takes it to the next level. Writer director George Miller puts his heart out as every detail of this film from location to sets to costume and makeup is sensational. The action just blows your mind away scene after scene. Just sit back on your couch and enjoy the adrenaline rush.
Now top it up with the likes of Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron and you have a winner. Both are highly capable and versatile actors and provide the right kind of impetus to the film. Both have a special flair for playing characters with different shades and here it is no different. Though the film is based on Tom Hardy’s character and he has delivered a killer here, I still believe Charlize Theron has just nailed it and deserves a mention in the Academy Awards.
Mad Max series is a pinnacle when it comes to this genre of films. If you have missed it in the theaters then crank up your home theater volume.
