| Action packed!
This is an action packed thrill ride, full of explosions and tense moments. You can really tell the use of practical effects in comparison to visual ones, it also had a killer soundtrack. Everytime I watch this movie I enjoy it, it has amazing rewatchabilty.

Did You Know?


Tom Hardy had a dog named Max that was given to him when he was a teenager, he passed away in 2011. The dog's name was an honor to Mad Max (1979). Years later, Hardy played the title character in Mad Max: Fury Road.


Max Rockatansky: My name is Max. My world is fire and blood. Once, I was a cop. A road warrior searching for a righteous cause. As the world fell, each of us in our own way was broken. It was hard to know who was more crazy... me... or everyone else.


Furiosa talks about a "160 day" ride across the salt desert, on their fully loaded motorcycles. This makes no sense; as (a) they simply couldn't carry enough gasoline for that length of time - motorcycles get 30-50mpg, and the bikes couldn't possibly carry more than 50 gallons each, (b) they couldn't carry enough water for that period of time (humans require about a half gallon per day), and, most importantly, (c) no desert on earth is anywhere near that possible distance. In fact, presuming that they could indeed ride the entire time, a 160-day ride across a hard-surface desert (600 miles/day) is sufficient to circle earth almost FOUR TIMES. A 160 day WALK at a relatively easy pace (10 hours/day, 3mph) will still cover a distance almost TWICE the length of Australia, and would be sufficient to travel from Korea to Germany across the breadth of Asia.
