The new installment in the Mad Max franchise is the best one yet. Most people who’ve seen this would also agree that it is a great movie. But many of these people say it’s a great film for different reasons than I do, such as its strong female characters, especially Furiosa, or its riveting action sequences.
Both are great reasons for loving this film but the reason that this film is truly spectacular is because it combines the styles of the first two film. For those who haven’t seen the first two films, Mad Max is a quiet, nearly dialogue free revenge film. The second film, Road Warrior is essentially a two hour explosion fest, and a good one at that.
With the new film, you get the quiet thoughtful, and soft spoken tone of the first film and the crazy over the top action of the second.
And thankfully, it’s nothing like the third film. If you’ve seen it, you’ll remember the steaming pile of shit it was.
I wonder what the writer’so were thinking at the time. Hmm, let’s see… how about let’s cast Tina Turner, have fights in a massive cage and add lost orphans in a jungle to end the film.
