Mad Max ws the first installment which began in 1979, and was followed by three films, they were Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior (1981), Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome (1985) and Mad Max: Fury Road (2015). The series follows the adventures of Max Rockatansky, a police officer of the Main Force Patrol in a future Australia whose civilization is rapidly collapsing due to war and critical resource shortages. The film that I would like to apply media criticism on is the fourth installment of the Mad Max franchise: Mad Max: Fury Road (2015). It is an action film and was directed by Geoarge Miller who’s also the originator of the post-apocalyptic genre and the mastermind behind the legendary Mad Max franchise. The movie is a story set in the furthest reaches of the planet, in a stark desert wasteland where humanity is broken, and almost everyone is crazed fighting for the necessities of life - water, known as Aqua Cola and gasoline, are hoarded and tussled over like scraps of food.
