Mad Max: Fury Road (2015) Movie Review

I originally watched this film in an absolutely packed house with only a few moments from one of the trailers remaining in the ol’ noggin. Following my watch, I posted my review on Letterboxd and I would say my feelings.. Still pretty much the same.


Alright, alright. We’ve read all the comments of “OMG FURY ROAD WILL BLOW YOUR MIND!” & “OMG FURY ROAD IS THE MOST INCREDIBLE CREDIBLE FANTASICAL FILM TO EVER BEEN CREATED” and you want to know what I think of all this damn praise, friend? … It is completely well deserved.

I have no idea how half of these scenes were executed but bra-effing-vo to George Miller et al on this sheer magnetic force of a picture. Immortan Joe is a terrifying yet powerful creature and every secondary character managed to serve the story rather than hinder it. And that soundtrack.. That booming soundtrack managed to shake every morsel of my being.

If you are looking for an action movie with complex characters, insane stunts, pure adrenaline running through your beautiful little veins, and a semi-love interest angle that simply doesn’t suck.. Take whatever day you want off work and treat yourself to something that will be pure love making for your eyes.

Oh, what a film. What a lovely film. And it remains one of my favourites of the last decade.. Let alone this year!


Mad Max: Fury Road receives a coveted 5/5 Matt Damon heads.

  1. I agree. This was definitely a mind-blowing film, and I mean that literally. It took me two days for my 45-year-old brain to return to normal. It was such an overwhelming visual spectacle.

    I like the theory out there that Tom Hardy isn’t playing the real Mad Max. He is the Feral Kid from the Road Warrior who is pretending to be Mad Max.

    I wrote a short essay on Fury Road called “The Rule of Law.” If you would like to read it, I am open to any feedback: https://christopherjohnlindsay.wordpress.com/2015/10/25/mad-max/
