It is mid May and I firmly believe we already have the best summer action movie. Mad Max: Fury Road follows Max and Furiosa in a 2 hour long car chase from hell (but in an awesome way). Mad Max is all in the emotions and all in the action, I could probably count the words spoken in this movie. But, you know what? That’s not a  bad thing! This is about the action! This is about the massively over the top car chases! Beautifully done car chases with lots of practical special effects I may add. But there comes a point in this movie where it becomes more, where you feel for the characters. Nicholas Hoult, who played the weird, insane, screwed up character of Nux was my personal favorite. The only other thing I know this guy from is Warm Bodies, and I have to say, I had no idea he had these acting chops! He has a level of insanity I’ve rarely seen before, done so perfectly, yet you still relate to him. Charlize Theron played Furiosa, the bad ass girl in this movie that could kick any of our asses six ways to Sunday even without her sweet robot arm. Lastly, Tom Hardy. Tom Hardy has always been a good actor, lately I’ve been realizing that he is a great actor. He starts out the movie by saying “I’m not sure who is crazier, me or them.” THAT is a perfect statement. Tom Hardy talks less than anyone in this movie, yet acts at the same level or even above. The non vocal acting and the way he emotes with his eyes are on another level. He has asked to be the punisher in the new movie, frankly I’d give him a role as a flamboyant gay man if he wanted it. I couldn’t see this movie being anywhere near as entertaining on your TV at home. But as far as a summer action flick, it’s one of the best.
