Director George Miller virtually seems out to lunch for revisiting his franchise of the 1980s with this nearly dialogue-free tent-pole production that features mostly practical effects and a strong feminist bent to boot. However, Mad Max delivers more just a tale of sound and fury even if it looks like the same nonsensical video-game-passing-as-a-movie that panders to the masses these days. Miller’s on to something. Fury Road, for all its unrelenting action and mayhem, feels like the result of a filmmaker listening to the demands of audiences and tinkering with mainstream formula to deliver a counterpoint to studio garbage.
