Once expected to be one of the most explosive blockbusters on the big screen this summer, ‘Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga’ has a negative point in terms of content and is less satisfying than its predecessor.\

Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga is the fifth film of the popular movie franchise Mad Max. The film is set in a post-apocalyptic world, depicting the long journey of Furiosa (Anya Taylor-Joy) from the time she was kidnapped from her hometown, falling into the hands of Dementus’s (Chris Hemsworth) gang until she became a The mighty commander fights against the tyrant Immortan Joe (Lachy Hulme).

After the disaster, most of the Earth’s surface became dead lands, people had to kill each other to compete for food left over from the old world. Yet in the middle of the arid Wasteland, there exists a Green Place, Furiosa’s peaceful homeland, with fertile land, lush growing plants and breeding animals. Therefore, it is easy to understand that this land became the place that all barbarians craved.

Hidden for a long time in the desert, Green Zone suddenly welcomed the visit of uninvited guests. Many people say that Furiosa is rash and thoughtless when fighting against big, rough people on her own, but she only follows the “dictum” that people here have followed for generations – “don’t let any invaders” Whoever survives will leave this place.”

Furiosa puts herself in danger as she fights off brutal outsiders on her own.

After a failed attempt to resist, Furiosa was kidnapped by intruders into the desert. There, she not only witnessed her loved one being murdered right before her eyes but also became a slave in the hands of others. Furiosa spent a harsh childhood in the Biker Horse gang led by Dementus, and was later traded by him to other forces to gain benefits like objects.

With no one to rely on or help, little Furiosa must find a way to survive on her own in the middle of a battle between desert tyrants. Over ten years of experiencing all kinds of harsh challenges, she honed her fighting skills, determined to avenge her old revenge, and day and night longed to find a way back to her hometown.

“The most brutal angels will be born in the harshest circumstances.”

Impressive “transformation” of Anya Taylor-Joy and Chris Hemsworth

In Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga , Anya Taylor-Joy plays the female lead Furiosa in her youth, a classic character once associated with the name of actress Charlize Theron. Playing a character with a reputation is both an opportunity and a big challenge for Anya. When the Furiosa project was announced, many viewers questioned whether Anya could overcome the huge shadow of her “senior” who once caused a fever on the screen.

In fact, Anya Taylor-Joy did a good job of inheriting the “damsel in distress” image by presenting the image of a fearless, brutal but enchanting warrior. Critics gave many positive reviews to Anya Taylor-Joy’s emotional transformation in Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga , and also praised her risky action scenes and close combat scenes.

Throughout her acting career, Anya Taylor-Joy has made an impression with her blonde hair, white skin, and ladylike appearance. However, in Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga , Anya has black hair, even shaved to fit the character’s description. Dare to let go of the muse image and transform into a wild character like Furiosa to diversify her role collection is a highly appreciated move of Anya Taylor-Joy.

The ladylike appearance is the image associated with the name Anya Taylor-Joy.

In addition to Anya Taylor-Joy’s Furiosa, the “villain” Dementus played by Chris Hemsworth is also an impressive character. Having been framed by the image of the “God of Thunder” of the Marvel Cinematic Universe for a long time, Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga is an opportunity for Chris Hemsworth to prove his acting talent to the audience.

In the film, the actor completely abandoned his original superhero image, portraying a hot-tempered, brutal, crazy and inhumane Lord Dementus. However, this tyrant also occasionally makes the audience laugh because of his naive and shallow nature in dangerous situations, and Chris Hemsworth portrays both sides of the character’s personality well.

Majestic but enough to satisfy

Winning points for its interesting images and character arcs, but because it is a prequel to the classic movie Mad Max: Fury Road , Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga is expected to do more than that. Fury Road in 2015 created a box office fever and won 6 out of 10 nominations at the 2016 Oscars.

Compared to the previous part, Furiosa has fewer epic scenes. The film’s plot is generally simple and predictable, the development of the main character follows the old motifs of Hollywood action films. Currently, Furiosa’s global revenue has not reached the threshold of 70 million USD (1.7 trillion VND), a rather modest number for a blockbuster film.

“Furiosa” is said to be not satisfying enough when compared to “Mad Max: Fury Road”.

However, the Fury Road part is a work set in just 36 hours, with a strong survival feel, while Furiosa focuses on the development journey of a specific character, so it would not be entirely appropriate to place the two works. The above products are in the same measure . Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga still has its own values ​​and good things.

Similar to the tradition of other films in the Mad Max “universe” , Furiosa is heavily invested in action and special effects. With a budget of more than 168 million USD (4.7 trillion VND), director George Miller continuously entertains viewers with a series of intense, breathtaking action scenes. Creatively built homemade vehicles in the desert, many meticulously choreographed chases and close combat scenes all create a dramatic feeling for the audience.

So when ignoring the limitations, Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga is still an attractive action movie, worth watching, capable of bringing the audience unforgettable moments of entertainment on the big screen.
