In a post-apocalyptic wasteland, rebel warrior Furiosa and drifter Max Rockatansky join forces to overthrow a tyrant.
Returning to the blighted world he created after 30 years, director George Miller lets the titular antihero Max Rockatansky (Tom Hardy) take the backseat for this particular ride. Mad Max: Fury Road stars Charlize Theron as Imperator Furiosa, striving to liberate herself and the slave-wives of a local warlord.
Furiously entertaining and atypically thoughtful for a modern action movie, the insane pacing and stunning visuals make Fury Road one of the most memorable blockbusters in recent cinema.
