Max Rockatansky (Tom Hardy) is captured by a group loyal to the warlord Immortan Joe (Hugh Keays-Byrne), who tyrannizes his people, doling out water in small amounts to keep them desperate.
Imperator Furiosa (Charlize Theron), whom he believes is loyal to him, helps several young women, who are forced to bear his children, escape. Once he realizes what she's up to, he and his army set out after her, using Max as a blood supplier for Nux (Nicholas Hoult), one of his loyal supporters.
During a battle, Max manages to escape and he teams up with Furiosa as they both desperately try to get away from Joe and save the women, one of whom is pregnant.

"The best Mad Max ever!"
"There are not many movies with mostly practical effects today. The stunts are breathtaking, the characters are cool and we can root for them. Visual side of the movie is beautiful and ugly at the same time. Perfect post-apo!"
"Visually beautiful, post-apo world of fire and blood. Simple plot, almost non-existent, but it´s just cool ride!
Lovely old+modern religion of Immortan´s warboys, crazy details like guitarist in the role of ancient bard who gaves the rhytm to the move of war rigs and depressive wasteland everywhere...and the fact that young warboy who was born after the apocalypse doesn´t know what is a tree is quite disturbing because we certainly go this path to get into the world like this soon.
Max is mad to the point he barely speaks to the other characters and badass one-handed Furiosa is the best female character in action movie of all times. She doesn´t need to strip or show her butt and breasts to be "cool" because she´s cool. She has also typical female qualities like empathy and care for Immortan´s "wives", aka slaves. She´s driven mostly by empathy and desire to free them and herself from the dictator and reach the Green Place where they could live in peace.
Definitelly much better role model for young girls than Harley Quinn! But this movie isn´t for young kids, so...when they will be around 15, they can learn how to be cool. :)
And don ´t forget about Nux, the warboy who manages to overcome brainwashing and do the right thing. There´s just too much depth for one review in the movie which seems not deep at all at the first glance!"
