Mad Max: Fury Road
Post-apocalyptic is not my cup of tea. I didn't even see the other three Mad Max films with Mel Gibson (he will always be the best in The Year of Living Dangerously). I wanted to see this film because of...Tom Hardy.
Ever since I saw Locke and The Drop, Mr. Hardy has caught my eye. Since seeing Mad Max, I've seen him in Lawless and several others.
Mad Max: Fury Road is a post-apocalyptic action film by George Miller, the fourth in his Mad Max franchise. Fury Road stars Tom Hardy as "Mad" Max Rockatansky and Charlize Theron.
In a desert wasteland where gasoline and water are scarce, Max joins forces with Imperator Furiosa to flee the cult leader Immortan Joe and his army.
My thoughts: I liked the movie and Mr. Hardy and Charlize Theron were good. It was never boring. In fact, it took off and never stopped, not even for a good rest. The neat thing about post-apocalyptic films is the creativity in the costuming and scenery. Someone had a good time, especially with the vehicles. And I'll never look at chrome in the same way. I decided I'm not a 3D person. My son, who went with me, saw it again not in 3D and enjoyed it much more. Definitely not for youngsters.
Are there specific film genres you prefer to watch?
