When you need to flee a crazed cult leader across a post-apocalyptic wasteland.

Awesome, vibrant, and violent.

A perfect example of filmmaking. There's probably about six pages of script, but the story is told through imagery. It's a visual masterpiece.

Tom Hardy sure didn’t have much dialogue. Sometimes the action was confusing because I couldn’t tell who was doing what to whom. Gave me a headache so few seconds spent on a scene. It didn’t seem like a Mad Max film except by title. The story line didn’t fit.

What I love about this movie, other than the amazing cinematography, stunt work, soundtrack, etc., is how there is very subtle storytelling amidst the explosion riddled, in-your-face plot. The dialogue is very limited, yet if you read between the lines and pay close attention to the nonverbal cues there are rich characters and relationships with tons of development. Depending on your mood, you can enjoy Fury Road as a simple (totally amazing) action movie, or you can look deeper. Genius!

Wow, they really should have called this movie "Mad Maxine" as Charlize Theron does all the heavy lifting here. The utterly forgettable performance by the Max character makes Mel Gibson look like Laurence Olivier.

On the other hand, the action sequences are great, and if you like mayhem and special effects, just fast forward through all scenes with dialogue for a thrilling 45 minutes!
