Mad Max: Fury Road

3 1/2 Stars (out of 4)

It's startling to think that Mad Max: Fury Road, the fourth movie in the series, comes a full thirty years after the third, Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome. It's further startling to realize that the director of the previous three, the underrated visionary George Miller, is still at the helm.

The incredible array of physical objects moving through space in unique ways makes it seem limitlessly inventive, in a way that's far more artistic than the basic button-pushing of something like Furious 7. There are cars shaped like spiked porcupines, cars with bending, steel fishing rods topped with riders, and even a truck whose sole purpose is to provide chase music. More...
