Review

As Mad Max movies go this is on a par with Road Warrior.

From the get go the pace is relentless and almost every scene involves some sort of action sequence, by the end of the movie I was drained.

I felt that Max was more of a supporting character in his own movie with Theron taking the lead leaving Hardy to not really do anything more than fight.

Looks great, sounds great, got plenty of action but by the end it felt more like an episode of Kung Fu with a drifter going from town to town helping the needy than a crazy ott road movie that it starts of as.

3.5 Stars (3.5 / 5)
