Mad Max: Fury Road is quite the thrill

5 second plot: The world has gone to shit. It's a complete wasteland. Humanity is screwed, basically. Max, Furiosa and a handful of supermodels are on the run from Immortan Joe, who wants his supermodels back. There are cars, we've got explosions and lots of freaky-ass looking people. Oh yeah, and a little bit of hope.

5 second review: I can't wrap my head around the fact that most critics really love this movie. It's not bad, but I don't think it's going to become a classic like the first Mad Max movies. It's a great action movie, but I'm not a big fan of the freak show. The fact that Max can't talk too much was good in the original movies, but not in this one. This puts him on a sideline, which is weird because the movie's got his name in the title.

IMDb score: 8,6/10
Our score: 6,5/10
