    The problem with Furiosa is, of course, that it's a prequel and therefore a lot of its results are foreordained. We know where these characters will end up, which will survive, and which are unlikely to. We don't always know where Furiosa will succeed, but we certainly when she must fail. And being set in the same Wasteland as Fury Road, there's a certain sense that we're revisiting old haunts, so the world building isn't as novel as in the previous film. That said, it's still pretty cool. We spend a rather long time with Young Furiosa (Anya Taylor-Joy has such a distinctive face, the poor actress had her face digitally manipulated to fit), and while I like that version of the character's resourcefulness, the movie REALLY picks up when the lead is squarely in the driving seat (well, a little before that, if we take it literally). There are some great action scenes from that point - the attack on the war rig, the Bullet Farm fight - and Tom Burke (who looks like a young Stacy Keach here) is a strong mentor/partner for teenage(?) Furiosa. She's a badass with or without. As for Chris Hemsworth's Dementus, a sort of neo-Roman wannabe Renaissance Man, he's often too goofy for me to really tap into his menace, but ultimately, he's a coward who got ahead of himself, and his last stand in particular has a Shakespearean undercurrent I rather enjoyed, even if I wasn't always convinced Dementus was as entertaining as he must have been on the page. Nevertheless, a good time at the movies. 3 weeks ago

    Not quite as good as Fury Road, but honestly, what is? Still deeply entertaining and engaging. If you enjoyed Fury Road, this is definitely worth a watch! 3 weeks 3 days ago

    All the epic adventures of the old trilogy, with bursts of the outrageous action in Fury Road. I was really blown away. 3 weeks 6 days ago
