Imperator Furiosa (Charlize Theron) is the enigmatic driver of a mighty 18-wheeler mobile war rig belonging to Immortan Joe (Hugh Keays-Byrne), the leader of The Citadel. The despot has enslaved five women (Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Riley Keough, Zoe Kravitz, Courtney Eaton and Abbey Lee), to provide him with a viable male heir.
Furiosa kidnaps the women and flees across the Wasteland with Immortan Joe and his army in hot pursuit. Among the chasing horde is shaven-headed, tattooed acolyte Nux (Nicholas Hoult), whose poisoned blood is replenished by a living donor, Max Rockatansky (Tom Hardy), strapped to the front of his hot rod.
During the chase, Max breaks free from Nux and begrudgingly helps Furiosa and the women to evade Immortan Joe’s clutches. Mad Max: Fury Road is the fourth instalment of George Miller’s post-apocalyptic franchise and delivers thrillingly choreographed sequences of carmageddon, which build to a jaw-dropping finale. The orgy of high-octane auto mayhem is diminished on the small screen but still makes Fast & Furious 7 look like a sedate Sunday drive.
