In Greek mythology, the Furies were goddesses of justice and vengeance, particularly for crimes against the natural order. Mad Max: Fury Road takes cues from this feminist allegory while delivering—in spades—the sheer havoc the title also suggests.Director George Miller paints an immersive post-apocalyptic epoch where societal structure has been upended, and its most susceptible members—mainly women and children—are natural resources. The film is part superhero flick, part Western. Max (Tom Hardy) is a monosyllabic man-with-no-name until the last act, his taciturn manner hiding the scars of abuse and survivor's guilt from the family he couldn't protect. The movie's most compelling champion, Furiosa (Charlize Theron), falls squarely in the lineage of action heroines Ellen Ripley and Sarah Conner. Bolstered by a sufficient sum of provocation and even poignancy, Fury Road is a gritty, wild ride that gives equitable bang for your buck.
