It doesn't take long before this savage road picture gets rolling. The odd band of good guys are thrown together in a life and death struggle, the bad guys are just as evil as prior Road Warrior installments, and everyone is absolutely fearless.
George Miller could've taken the movie over the top, but thankfully he seemed to reign it in a little. I'm glad he didn't try to take us beyond Thunder Dome. This time he told us a good story - to the edge and back again. It's a gritty, bazaar world - but nothing that seemed to reach further beyond the better of it's prequels. Fury Road runs through the same mad world. It isn't a retelling of the Mad Max saga, it's merely a different gauntlet of fire and death. I enjoyed the ride.
Miller delivered the goods this time around and it was well worth the price of admission.
