M ad Max: Fury Road

Balonne Beacon - - LIFE TV GUIDE -

Wed­nes­day, go!, 9.30pm, MA15+ (2015) The first thing you’ll no­tice about this post-apoc­a­lyp­tic tale, the fourth in the fran­chise and 30 years af­ter the last in­stal­ment, is the lack of Mel Gib­son’s name. His turn as the venge­ful Max in the early ’80s cat­a­pulted him to the bright lights of Hol­ly­wood, but while the direc­tor (George Miller) has stayed the same, Fury Road brings us a whole new gen­er­a­tion of gun-tot­ting, car-smash­ing rebels hell-bent on re­venge. Tom Hardy is the epony­mous Max while Char­l­ize Theron (pic­tured) is his rebel in arms, Fu­riosa. Both are trou­bled and both must fight across a stark desert land­scape to re­store or­der. Big, brash and bold, Max is cer­tainly back w ith gusto.
