Before this was showing in the cinema, I saw the previous version of it was shown in HBO, which are the 1979, and 1981 and 1985 version, is been 30 year ago (which the year I wasn't even born yet) After 30 years, with the same director, George Miller who is 70 years old now, he also represent the producer and also the writer of this movie. With roughly the same story line, where in the future all left was desert, people were no longer fight for money but for gasoline and water. I can said that the movie was having climax till the end which you won't feel like missed of the scenes.
Is a 2 hours long movie, from 10.20pm to 12pm plus. (I was thinking I might be yawning or fall asleep in the cinema, but surprisingly I stayed up all to watch until the end of the movie!)
The whole movie was taking scenes in the desert, can truly feel the hot even though beyond the screen. I watched the behind scene of this movie, they used all real cars for most of the car crashing scenes. The sounds of engines and enemies who use music to inspire the solider or they called it war boy, that Flame-Throwing 'Mad Max' Guitar is Totally Real. I guess watch this movie in 3D should be more fun.
There's one character that I like the most is Charlize Theron who played as Furiosa in the movie, even though she lost half of her left hand, but she still very strong and unpredictable. Also that one of the character that I would like to mention is one of the war boy, Nux who is Nicholas Hoult (the main actor played as Jack in Jack the Giant Slayer) can't even recognize him until the half of the movie where has some big head shooting scenes on him. (Can guess one of the reason is he has too much white makeup on his face, maybe?)
还有戏中让我欣赏不已的就是Furiosa，Charlize Theron，即使她失去了左手，但还是整个女强人那样强悍，她的身手跟对焦度是无人能比。惊奇的是戏中的war boy, Nux竟然是Nicholas Hoult（那在Jack the Giant Slayer饰演过男主角的Jack）他一出来的时候，我都不以为异的发觉是他，可能是因为他化上白色的厚底妆的关系吧，我在电影的中途有他的大头画面，我才人得出是他。

In the distant future the world is a desert wasteland and civilization has collapsed. Max (Tom Hardy), a survivor in Australia, is captured by the War Boys, the army of tyrannical cult leader Immortan Joe (Hugh Keays-Byrne). Designated a universal blood donor, Max is imprisoned and used as a "blood bag" for the sick War Boy Nux (Nicholas Hoult). Meanwhile, Imperator Furiosa (Charlize Theron) drives her heavily-armored War Rig to collect gasoline. Furiosa begins driving off route, alerting Joe who realizes that his Five Wives – women specially selected for breeding – are gone. Joe leads his entire War Boy army in pursuit of Furiosa, calling on the aid of nearby Gas Town and the Bullet Farm.
Nux joins the army with Max strapped to the hood of his car, to continue supplying blood. A battle ensues between the Rig and Joe's forces. Furiosa drives into an approaching sand storm evading her pursuers, except Nux, who attempts to sacrifice himself to destroy the Rig; Max escapes and restrains Nux, but the car is destroyed by the Rig. Waking up after the storm, Max sees Furiosa nearby repairing her Rig, accompanied by the Wives: Angharad, Capable, Cheedo, Toast, and the Dag. Max steals the Rig, but its kill-switch disables the truck. Max reluctantly agrees to let Furiosa and the Wives accompany him, while Nux returns to Joe.
Furiosa drives through Biker gang territory into a narrow canyon, having agreed to exchange gasoline for passage. However, Joe's forces are close behind, and Furiosa flees while the Bikers detonate the canyon walls to block Joe's path. Max and Furiosa fend off the pursuing Bikers but Joe's vehicle evades the blockade and assaults the Rig. Nux boards the Rig while Joe attempts to shoot Furiosa. Angharad, Joe's heavily pregnant wife, shields Furiosa, but falls from the Rig and is run over by Joe's car, killing her and his child. Furiosa explains to Max that they are escaping to the "Green Place", a location she remembers from her youth. Capable finds Nux hiding aboard the Rig, distraught that he contributed to the death of Joe's wife; she consoles him. At night, the heavy Rig gets caught in deep mud. Furiosa and Max slow Joe's forces with explosives, but Joe's ally, the Bullet Farmer, pursues the Rig. Nux helps free the Rig while Furiosa shoots and blinds the Bullet Farmer. He retaliates with machine gun fire and explosives. Max wanders into the dark to confront the Bullet Farmer, returning to the Rig with guns and ammunition.
As dawn breaks, the Rig travels through swampland and desert, eventually coming across a naked woman. Max identifies it as a trap, but Furiosa leaves the Rig and states her former clan affiliation. The woman summons her group who realize that Furiosa is a member of their clan, kidnapped with her mother when she was a child. Furiosa is distraught to learn that the swamp land they passed was the Green Place, which is now uninhabitable. The group agree to ride motorbikes across the immense salt flats in the hope of finding somewhere to live. Max chooses to stay behind, but after seeing visions of a child, he convinces them to return to the Citadel, which has ample water and greenery that Joe keeps for himself, and trap Joe and his army in the Biker's canyon.
The group begins the journey back to the Citadel, eventually encountering Joe. A battle is waged by the two sides, and Furiosa is gravely wounded. Joe positions his car in front of the Rig to slow it, while Max fights Joe's son Rictus. Toast is captured and put on Joe's car, but she distracts him, allowing Furiosa to hook Joe's mask to his car's rotating wheels, tearing his face off and killing him. Nux sacrifices himself by destroying the Rig, blocking the canyon, killing Rictus, and allowing Max, Furiosa, and the Wives to escape in Joe's car. Max transfuses his blood to Furiosa, to help her survive her injuries.
At the Citadel, Joe's citizens are overjoyed at the sight of Joe's corpse. Furiosa and the Wives are raised up on a lift by the child War Boys, but Max stays behind. He and Furiosa share a glance of acknowledgment before Max disappears into the crowd.
