From director George Miller, originator of the post-apocalyptic genre and mastermind behind the legendary MAD MAX franchise, comes MAD MAX: FURY ROAD, a return to the world of the Road Warrior, Max Rockatansky.

Haunted by his turbulent past, Max (Tom Hardy) believes the best way to survive is to wander alone. Nevertheless, he becomes swept up with a group fleeing across the Wasteland in a War Rig driven by an elite Imperator, Furiosa (Charlize Theron). They are escaping a Citadel tyrannized by the Immortan Joe, from whom something irreplaceable has been taken. Enraged, the Warlord marshals all his gangs and pursues the rebels ruthlessly in the high-octane Road War that follows.


“The best action movie of the 21st century—the action movie that sails into contention as one of the best movies, period—is MAD MAX: FURY ROAD. By a dusty outback mile.” – A.O. Scott and Manohla Dargis, New York Times
