Mad Max: Fury Road

Mad Max: Fury Road ★★★

This is a visually arresting action blockbuster whose ambition isn't restricted to the summer superhero cookie cutter template. For that, we should be grateful.

But we should also recognise that it fails to fully realise these ambitions. We can't properly connect with either Furiosa or Max, and when they provide the main emotional and narrative thrust for the film, that's a problem.

A flawed film that isn't afraid to try.
