Despite amounting to little more than an extended chase scene, George Miller’s MAD MAX: FURY ROAD offers a complex and engaging fully realized apocalyptic world full of imagination and insanity. From Max to Furiosa to Immortan Joe to Nux, the visuals are incredible and the action is something that has never been seen before. “What A Day! What A Lovely Day!”

Review: Mad Max: Fury Road (2015)
The HNR grue-crew climb aboard Furiosa’s War Machine and speed headlong toward Valhalla screaming the praise of Mad Max: Fury Road. Well, most of the crew, anyways. Doc decides to start the new church of Fury Road while The Black Saint struggles with the plot and character. It’s an exciting – and heated – discussion about the fourth Mad Max movie and George Miller’s crowning achievement in film. Christopher gives the film 500 miles an hour out of 5. Wowzers!
