Mad Max: Fury Road is an acquired taste. If you have enjoyed, the last three installments of this vehicles-in-wasteland franchise, then this will be a gloriously satisfying experience. But if like me, you don’t get giddy with excitement at the idea of a post-apocalyptic world peopled by purposefully ghoulish characters and cars, this might become a bit exhausting. Thirty-six years after the first film, director George Miller returns to the universe he created so successfully with Mel Gibson. The film begins with the new Max, played by Tom Hardy, telling us that his world is fire and blood.
