Spoiler Alert! I’ll be talking about the brand new Mad Max movie so if you haven’t seen it yet pretty much anything I say will be a spoiler. Mad Max Fury Road is a thrill ride all the way through. It is excellently paced and filled with exciting action sequences and chock full of ladies! That’s right. Along with the unstoppable Furiosa there are five women, the escaped wives of the warlord Immortal Joe, who are striving to get to the green place, the lush lands of Furiosa’s birth. A place she was stolen from as a child. The specifics of Furiosa’s upbringing are not gone into but she speaks of wanting redemption. She has risen through the ranks of Immortal Joe’s army, and is praised by name from Joe at the beginning of the movie, a coveted position of trust and favor from the man who is as much a god as a leader to his people. She must have had to do so many things that she did not want to, fight and kill and strive just to live. She uses her influence as Imperator to smuggle the five wives of Immortal Joe out of his strong hold. They leave behind the message “We are not things.” It doesn’t take long for Joe to realize what has happened and he chases after the with the full fury of his army. Over the course of the movie we get to see many feats of strength and skill from Furiosa but we also get some great moments from the escaped wives. One, who is eight months pregnant, uses her body to shield Max and Furiosa from gun fire because immortal Joe refuses to risk shooting near to her. In the course of their escape they meet more women, the last of Furiosa’s tribe. During their last bid to escape death these women join forces with Max and Furiosa and fight back against Immortal Joe’s army. This movie is top notch. If you love Mad Max and if you love kick ass ladies you will love this movie.
