We got invited down to review director Kennedy Miller’s and Warner Bros. highly anticipated release Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga. Having seen Mad Max: Fury Road, I was aware that what was likely to await me as the film credits started rolling, i would be presented by a violent, and gore filled story. And to be fair, this is exactly what was delivered, albeit with a more intrinsic twist. The story itself follows Furiosa, a child born into what in the film is known as “abundance”. A small paradise etched into the world, which otherwise is surrounded by wasteland and death.

Her childhood [Anya Taylor-Joy] is very quickly stripped from her as she is carted off into a world governed by warlords. Here we meet Chris Hemsworth character Dementus. Warlord of the infamous Biker Horde. A character so enigmatically chaotic, that you find yourself enticed by the mental fragility, borne on insanity and brutality Chris Hemsworth character encapsulates. Steadfast in his lust for dominance over all other warlords, Dementus finds himself pit against the equally brutal Immortan Joe. What follows is story defined by as much the violence that such a wasteland bares from the depths of depair, but at the same time…highlights the endurance, strength and perseverance of the human mind to survive.

The film is thoroughly entertaining. Not only are the characters incredibly well portrayed. The detail on the story leaves you gripped from start to finish. The costume and make up design are phenomenal. Forget fairy tales, Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga offers the audience a brutal and harsh reality of the human psyche. A must watch, and whilst not for the faint of heart, is a ruthless, unshakable and brilliant showpiece.
