    So we've got this Soviet agent named Scuba, who's in America, murdering deep-cover Soviet agents unless he gets $200,000. Another Soviet agent is sent to...take care of him.

    George Miller had been talking about this - or at least, had been persistently asked about it in interviews - for like twenty years now, and I don't know what's different about now that he finally got around to making it but I'm glad he did. The response on this has been gobsmacking, though I was willing to chalk a fair bit of it up to Peak Gen-X Nostalgia, and it coming at a good time to be heralded as…
