‘Mad Max: Fury Road’ Reviews: Critics Call It One Of 2015’s Best Films

Mad Max: Fury Road marks the first time in 30 years that the iconic character has graced the silver screen. With its release date being this Friday, critics are finally able to publish their reviews. So far, many seem to be making room for it on their best of 2015 lists.

George Miller, who directed the three previous Mad Max films, returns to helm Fury Road, which has Tom Hardy taking over in the lead role. Starring alongside Hardy are Charlize Theron, Nicholas Hoult, Zoe Kravitz, and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. Miller also wrote the screenplay along with Nick Lathouris, who had a role as “Grease Rat” in the first Mad Max, and Brendan McCarthy, who worked as a storyboard artist on 1990’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
