The New Mad Max is the newest installment of the Mad Max series of films. The third installment of the film franchise promises to be even bigger than the previous two installments. The film has received warm ovations from the first day it was released in Australian cinemas and is expected to be a huge hit when it opens in US theaters later this year. Will this be the end of the tough-guy persona of Max for good? That remains to be seen.
The movie opens with a bomb going off in the desert. A young girl named Furio stands near the place where the bomb had landed and gets shot accidentally by a machine. She is rushed to the hospital while her father remains on the run. Meanwhile, Max is being questioned by an official named Jodie whose aim is to have Max get some kind of proof that he is not the real Mad Max. When she learns that Max is the one who saved her family, she lets him go free so he can prove himself. However, Max soon realizes that something is wrong and goes back to pursue Jodie.
The new Mad Max movie is based on the book “The Road. starring Dan Aykroyd and Carrie Fisher”. The book series began with the publication of the first Mad Max novel “having Max” in 1970. Since then, there have been four more novels in the series. The latest is “The Road” which is in theaters now. The stars of the film include Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hardy, Willow Shields, and Charlize Theron.
The film has received a warm welcome from several Hollywood heavyweights such as Gene Hackman, Brett Ratner, and director George Nicks. All are looking for new ways to either separate themselves from the old version of the characters or to simply adapt the storyline into a contemporary framework. It’s been compared to Scarface in that it deals with illegal drugs, violence, and the darker side of the automotive industry. But the difference lies more with the story. Whereas Scarface deals with illegal drug use as just one part of the life of an American living in Miami, Mad Max shows us the repercussions when the “narcotics trade” invades other areas of the world.
While this new Mad Max movie certainly has its own interesting plot, I feel that the most interesting element of the story centers on how much better mankind can get if we as a society can master the use of our cars. After all, the road is essential to traveling and escaping, both for vehicles and humans. However, in the new Mad Max, the road is the primary means of travel. This is because the evil organization the Humpsters want to destroy uses a series of bridges to transport their troops and weapons across the desert. Without the transportation methods, the Dumpsters cannot keep their troops where they want to be.
Therefore, once the bridge is down, the only way to take their vehicles into the city is by using massive trucks that are actually foot soldiers. These foot soldiers are driven by two incredibly tough females who drive a very powerful vehicle. The female leads the group as the sole driver of the vehicle and takes everyone (save one guy) on the incredible trip across the wastelands while battling the various natives and creatures along the way. The most amazing aspect of this movie is that this group makes no mention of where they’re going or what they need to do once they reach the city.
In the current political climate, it’s incredibly important that citizens remain aware of their surroundings and the laws of the land while driving. Unfortunately, in the Mad Max films, the only way you can see any law or regulation is through the mouth of the antagonist, who is played by Tom Hardy. Hardy’s tough character stands out as a perfect choice to embody a hard-line stance on law and order. As a result, there’s a lot of misunderstanding surrounding the character and the film itself. Many Mad Max fans are confused as to why Hardy’s character is so strict about following the rules and getting everyone lined up properly. Some have even accused the movie of promoting the idea that law enforcement is obsolete and corrupt.
Regardless, the movie does have its strong points. For instance, the driving sequence in Mad Max is some of the most intense actions you’ll ever see on the big screen. It also showcases the insane car tricks and stunts that are part and parcel of the Mad Max series. Overall, the movie is a fun, fast-paced action thriller that’s well worth the time you invest in it. If you have the opportunity to see Mad Max, I highly recommend it!
