Pop quiz hot shot: How do you resurrect a franchise as extinct as the dinosaurs they feature (or the movie I just quoted)???
My take on Mad Max: Fury Road
Let me start by stating that I’ve never watched a movie that made everything that came before it seem so quaint. This movie is the reason that there are movies.
It’s been thirty years since we’ve had a new Mad Max movie and Fury Road is way beyond Thunder Dome! The title Fury Road is a nod to the star of the film, Charlize Theron’s Furiousa. In this installment Max is more of a McGuffin than the reluctant hero his been played as in the series’ past. He’s still the bad ass we know and love but this time around he’s ridin’ shotgun.
