“Hope is a mistake.”
Mad Max finally returns.
Madness Unleashed! Two hours of orgasmic insanity taken up on the vanguard by mind numbing action, melting music of high-octane engine revving, breathtaking inane takedowns, colossal beastly war machines that only speak of destruction, flying rad bikes that skim the dunes with pizzazz and the unceasing adrenaline rush that doesn’t let you settle down even for a sec! Ice that with crazy visuals, top-notch 3D and exceptional score and “Witness”!
There is madness in the air and you could literally see it. It is the right amount of dark that doesn’t touch gore but still goes on to show a lot of death. With dope visuals and swell 3D, Fury Road becomes a rare coup. It breathes on an outstanding plot, deadly stunts and constant punishing annihilation. Right from the prologue the movie starts packing in exquisite action. It further inches into more lunacy with its unique storyline that would beat your imagination.
George Miller’s beauty is less Max and more Furiosa. Max just happens to run into her muck. Primarily the tale of the furious Furiosa who is on her way towards her origin, driving a charging War Machine, hatching a secret in the beast and keeping her greasy eyes of hope wide open for redemption. Charlize Theron imparts Furiosa an apt depth, something that only she could have done justice to. Nicholas Hoult does a memorable Nux who is downright nuts. Tom Hardy sways in the Max boots with his laconic act that entails kicking a lot of ass.
Miller’s subtlety plays extremely well with the score, as suddenly the vibrant beats stop for Max to reveal his name. You can also perceive the adroitness in his direction when he shows things from Furiosa’s perspective by manifesting Max’s return after taking care of The Bullet Farmer.
“It is not his blood.”
With the flick being an action feast, a lot of things remain unsaid. However, Miller makes sure that people still fathom and connect with trivial things like nods and gestures by slipping in the right amount of gravity.
This movie is one of the best action films I have seen in ages which not only carries an awesome storyline but also a throbbing joyride into mechanical awesomeness on the relentless Fury Road. I am planning on watching this beauty again. Loco stuff!
