What a lovely day for a new Mad Max movie. I must say, just watching the third Mad Max film, this movie shows the leaps and bounds that film-making has done in the last 30 years. The red sand looks so crisp and the action scenes are so visceral and explosive. I don’t think that Tom Hardy really embodied the role of Mad Max well though compared to Mel Gibson. Plus, I felt like the focus was more on Charlize and her gorgeous L’Oreal of the Wasteland girls instead of the titular character. I loved the different vehicles and contraptions the film had. No movie franchise since the James Bond series can match the cool gadgets and vehicles that show up in the Mad Max Universe. It’s a very fun movie, not the deepest thing you’ll see, and I wish there was a little more humor to it, but if I must end this review with one thing it’s that Nicholas Hoult stole the show with his excellent performance as one of the bad guys turned good. Check this one out for high-octane (no ethanol) thrills.
