From director George Miller, originator of the post-apocalyptic genre and mastermind behind the legendary "Mad Max" franchise, comes "Mad Max: Fury Road," a return to the world of the Road Warrior, Max Rockatansky. Haunted by his turbulent past, Mad Max (Tom Hardy) believes the best way to survive is to wander alone. Nevertheless, he becomes swept up with a group fleeing across the Wasteland in a War Rig driven by an elite Imperator, Furiosa (Charlize Theron). They are escaping a Citadel tyrannized by the Immortan Joe (Hugh Keays-Byrne), from whom something irreplaceable has been taken. Enraged, the Warlord marshals all his gangs and pursues the rebels ruthlessly in the high-octane Road War that follows.

Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: With exhilarating action and a surprising amount of narrative heft, Mad Max: Fury Road brings George Miller's post-apocalyptic franchise roaring vigorously back to life.

Postapocalyptic action is excellent but extremely violent.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Mad Max: Fury Road -- the fourth film in the Mad Max series and the first in decades -- is a reboot of sorts, with Tom Hardy taking over for Mel Gibson in the title role. It's extremely violent, with nonstop chase scenes, explosions, deaths, blood, shooting, and stabbing, as well as violence against women (including a bloody scene involving a pregnant woman), nightmarish flashbacks, diseased flesh, and other disturbing imagery. Several imprisoned women are attached to machines that pump their breast milk, and some of the female characters (some of whom are played by supermodels) are treated as sexual objects, shown wearing skimpy clothing while washing. One woman is naked, but viewers only see her behind. No strong language is clearly heard, but much of the dialogue is obscured by the thundering sound effects. Drinking, drugs, and smoking aren't issues. Even though this franchise hasn't had a new entry in more than a generation, it's likely that strong buzz will attract all kinds of teen moviegoers.
