Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga Review | A Spectacular Prequel with a Miscast Lead

George Miller returns to his post-apocalyptic wasteland of despots, desperation, and bloody vengeance in a roaring prequel that doesn’t try to replicate its magnificent predecessor. Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga is a vastly different animal than the non-stop, practical effects adrenaline rush of Fury Road. A more conventional, chapter-driven narrative frames an epic battle over limited resources as grotesque villains clamor for action-packed supremacy. What’s missing? Star Anya Taylor-Joy is nearly mute in a surprisingly downbeat performance. She’s the film’s weakest link, with almost no dialogue and much less screen time than expected. This may have worked for Tom Hardy and Mel Gibson in past entries, but not here.
