Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga Review

ComicBook critic Spencer Perry’s Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga Review gives the film 4.5. out of 5 stars:

Comparisons to Fury Road will no doubt bounce about like a flaming tire rolling down a well-paved Wasteland street, but Furiosa and Fury Road are focused on different things. Though there are similarities to be found, and several characters and key locations appear in both, Furiosa is aiming for something closer in nature to Spartacus or Lawrence of Arabia than Fury Road, despite their aesthetic overlap and narrative loops. If there’s a fault to find in Furiosa, it’s that some of its attempts to really connect itself to Fury Road aren’t seamless. It’s not that they don’t work, but the timeline of events becomes slightly muddled, which is the film’s only real stumbling block and the kind of flaw that will fade into dust with time.

Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga is equal parts post-apocalyptic action thriller and biblical epic. Even if you think you’ve seen what this world has to offer, there are still surprises to find in the sand.
