Mad_Max_Fury_Road_2015_Imperator_Furiosa_Feminist

I know it’s probably some sort of sin among action movie lovers, but before seeing Mad Max: Fury Road, I had not seen any of the original three Mad Max films. The main reasons I was interested in seeing the fourth installment of the franchise up until a few weeks ago were because of Tom Hardy and some pretty interesting looking trailers. My interest, however, was piqued when I found out that so-called Men’s Rights Activists were upset about the supposed feminist elements within the film. I was skeptical since I usually find that most action films give off the exact opposite types of messages, but I generally get excited about anything that angers the MRAs, so I decided to see what all the fuss was about. And wow-am I glad that I did, because in Mad Max: Fury Road, I believe we’re seeing one of the very first truly feminist action films, which up until now I had thought was an oxymoron. And that’s incredibly significant.

I do know of the true story of American chess legend, Bobby Fischer, whose match against the Soviet Union in 1972 was considered an direct bout between nations during the height of the Cold War.

GRADE: A

There was one thing I continually uttered to myself softly under my breath while watching Mad Max: Fury Road: “WTF?” To be clear, I was uttering that because I couldn’t believe what I was hearing. Deafening drums, roaring engines, scorching flames, maniacal screaming laughter from psychopathic warriors. I couldn’t believe what I was seeing. A visually-striking bright, baron wasteland chock full of unfathomably exhilarating action set pieces and stunt work that makes Furious 7 look like a Nancy Meyers film. Yes, Mad Max: Fury Road completely blew me away, and for my money, it’s the best film of 2015 so far.
