Review: What a day. What a lovely day it was indeed.

The mastermind behind one of the greatest post-apocalyptic movie franchises ever, returns with his latest installment to the series and let me tell you, it is a great successor to the previous three titles while retaining that original badassery and excitement all other three had. In this fourth installment of the franchise, actor Tom Hardy took up the mantle of the titular character of Max Rockatansky, an ex Main Force Patrol fighting to survive in a post apocalyptic world against marauders and scavengers who fight and kill for the scarce resources left available in the world. George Miller brings back a great movie that is heavily packed with great action, thrills, automotive carnage, and greatly choreographed and edited stunts that have always stood out in the Mad Max franchise. My favorite thing about all of these movies is the favor George Miller has in using practical effects rather then visual, which can be clearly seen and appreciated in this movie. As a fan of the original trilogy I visually appreciated everything George Miller did with this movie, it comes to show that even after 3 decades of being away from this universe, he was still able to retain the essence and filming brilliance he gave us from the very beginning back in 1979. There is nothing negative I can say about this movie, from the action, characters portrayed in the film, plot, and all the actors and actresses performances were all very well developed that it brought together another great addition to the already established awesome franchise. I definitely recommend this movie to any movie fan who likes awesome action and post apocalyptic themed movies. I have seen this movie 3 times in theaters and will definitely buy it on Blu-Ray. Tell me your thoughts of the movie in the comment box below. I rate it a 5 stars out of 5.
