REVIEW: Mad Max: Fury Road (2015)

I am going to admit that I am pretty much hyped with Mad Max. I've heard that there were other movies before this, like a series or something but this is the first movie I've seen. Actually, I have no idea that there were a few of Mad Max movies before. (I can't wait to try to watch them all.) From what I heard, this movie isn't sequel nor a prequel. So, maybe like a spin-off?

The story revolves around a post-apocalyptic world and Max who is portrayed by Tom Hardy. Max is a wanderer whose blood is universal and is quite precious to an army called the War Boys. War Boys is lead by Immortan Joe who is probably one of the creepiest and most lunatic character in the movie. So, this leads to a chase that includes also Furiosa who is under the army of Joe but is secretly plotting an escape together with some of his wives.

So... actually, it's quite confusing. The movie is entitled Mad Max but I feel like the movie revolves around Furiosa and his positive attitude towards the escape that she is planning. I also felt like Furiosa has more spunk with her bald head. (Made me like Charlize Theron more!!!) Max? Well, Max is quite on the sidelines. I can't even rely on him most probably on most occasions.

If I have these kinds of comments, what made me like Mad Max? The effects, the locations, the lunatics, the rest of the characters, the action scenes and the sand. If the story could have been thought more and if Max showed that he is truly Mad Max, then probably this one's going to be on the top of my list.
