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. There’s Max (Tom Hardy), a former policeman who seeks peace of mind after the loss of his wife and child in the aftermath of the chaos. He is captured by the War Boys tribe, commanded by the Immortan Joe (Hugh Keays-Byrne), the big boss of the land and is assigned to be blood donor for the sick Wat Boy, Nux (Nicholas Hoult). On the other hand, Imperator Furiosa (Charlize Theron), the heroine who believes her path to survival may be achieved if she can make it across the desert back to her childhood homeland
