    annnnnnnnnnnnnnd breathe.

    One of the most intense, viscerally thrilling cinema experiences I'll ever have. It's frankly astonishing that this film exists at all. Let alone that George Miller somehow convinced a studio to give him over 100m for it, and then not have to insert anything as trite as a tacked-on romance or over-explained backstory (there is a LOT of weird shit round the margins of this film).

    Truth be told, it probably isn't for everyone and I'm not sure…

    Gorgeous but the story never rises above run-of-the-mill

    As soon as it finished I had the strongest desire to speak to my mum and dad. I couldn't really relate to Mason himself (maybe that's not really the point?) but seeing his parents age and make their own continual f*ckups was close to devastating.

    Possibly some of the clunkiest dialogue ever written, performed in some of the most astonishingly bad accents ever committed to film - and a huge huge waste of the potential of its cast. This gets 1 and a half stars for a couple of good action scenes and half a star for introducing me to the phrase "mfwic"
