Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga is a film that tells the story of young Furiosa, who is taken from the Green Place of Many Mothers and falls into the hands of a great biker horde led by The Warlord Dementus. Furiosa as she navigates through the wasteland, encountering The Citadel, presided over by Immortan Joe and As they fight for dominance, Furiosa must survive many trials as she tries to find her way home.

​ The film's storytelling takes a very different approach to presenting the narrative. Anya Taylor-Joy is the title character, origin of the character we meet in "Fury Road,"  by Charlize Theron. The world-building here is amazing, providing much more context for everything than we have in any of the more recent films. The wasteland has true character thanks to how much we get to see of Gas Town, The Bullet Farm, and The Citadel. Each landscape is gritty and unique in its own way, with leaders who are eccentrically presented to showcase the derangement and hubris of each.

Furiosa is a very sympathetic character almost from the start, so it's easy to follow her and root for her. This is where the movie is at its best and its best because it is patient and calculated in her pursuit of revenge. She is intelligent about her decisions and choices, not rushing with blind rage into a situation that will get her killed. Instead, she uses her cunning and smarts to look at all the different scenarios in front of her and then choose the one with the best likely outcome.

Taylor-Joy is stoic and quiet through much of this, but we can see all the rage, fear, anger, and drive in her expressive eyes. Hemsworth is just as expressive but intensely demonstrative in his presentation. There's nothing subtle about his thoughts or motivations, which is exactly what you need for a nomadic warlord of the wasteland. Immortan Joe is menacing just in visual presence, but Dementus has a showmanship quality that adds a tiny bit of quirky levity to his delivery.

The action is not non-stop, but when we get the sequences, they are frenetic, immersive, explosive, and a lot of fun to watch. There are many similarities to what we saw in "Fury Road," with war boys taking on acrobatic stunts, swinging off trucks with explosive spears, or spraying their mouths silver before taking on a deadly activity. The fire, explosions, and the visuals with vibrant oranges and blacks are just stunning.

The variety of vehicles we see is also amazing, with Dementus riding a chariot that is amazing to watch, and there's also a black flowing set piece that adds a terrifying dread and malevolence to a sequence.

​Anya Taylor-Joy convincingly executes the action and drama of her character, using her big blue eyes to convey needed emotion when the rest of her face is obscured. Chris Hemsworth acts really well as a big, mean war leader who thinks he's better than everyone else. He's smart, mean, and charming all at once, making the bad guy interesting and a bit likeable, even though he's still bad. The stylized action and effects are immersive, thanks to vibrant colors and enveloping camera movements. 2 hours and 28 minutes length movie, there is no sex or nudity, some profanity, and a ton of violence.
