Like a game of Chinese whispers or tales around a campfire, it’s best not to get bogged down in the details. Wasn’t the Interceptor destroyed? Didn’t he have a son? Eh.
Instead, focus on the NOS spewing, paint spraying, 100% top gear entertainment that you’ll find on Fury Road. It’s mental.
You could argue it’s not Max’s film, but that’s OK. Hardy provides a strong and stoic platform on which Theron builds a brilliant central performance.
If you haven’t seen the old films this will be unlike anything you’ve seen before. Even if you have it’s quite something. Flame guitar!
