This is a great action movie. Sure, it's stupid, but action usually is. It's a 2 hour movie with, I'm guessing, one hour and 59 minutes of chase scenes involving cars that have rubber tires that never go flat even when they are shot, burned, and poked. (Where can I buy a set of those?) A huge group of vehicles drives furiously in one direction, then they all just turn around and drive furiously all the way back to where they started. So, yeah, it's a road movie.

This all takes place in a post-apocalyptic desert world. Imperator Furiosa is a one-armed big-rig driver played by Charlize Theron. She has an artificial arm, a shaved head and uses axle grease for eye makeup but she still looks as hot as any one of her cargo of half-naked supermodels (including Elvis' granddaughter. Yeah, look it up!) She's smuggling the women out of their community to save them from a life of sex slavery. Everybody in the community is poor and starving, milling around waiting for some water to trickle-down to them from the god-like leaders (Reaganomics in action) but the way Furiosa chooses to rebel is to save only a small group of young and pretty girls and bring them to a happier place. She's not exactly a populist.

In the opening scene, we see a two-headed lizard standing on a rock behind a guy named Max, who's mad, probably because this movie isn't really about him. (It should have been called "Furiosa.") The lizard runs towards him, stopping and starting. He's facing the opposite direction and can't see it, but as soon as it reaches his feet he stomps his boot down on it without looking, picks it up and eats it heads first. Now that we know just how bad-ass he is, the chase scenes begin.

The lizard is CGI fakery. Not real. Not even real-looking.
