Here comes my first entry in a series that looks into the very best of the action genre! Up first, Mad Max: Fury Road!
What a day! What a lovely day! That sums up Nux’s feelings as he drives through a sandstorm, looking for his death to reach the gates of Valhalla. It’s also how I feel when I decide to rewatch Fury Road, the 2015 action masterpiece that racked up 11 Oscar nominations (including Best Picture) and winning six of them, the most for the year. Sitting at a handsome 97% on the Tomato Meter, Fury Road is a relentless, chrome filled action extravaganza that also offered up a unique commentary on gender studies.
