This is a 2 hour movie with approximately one hour and 59 minutes of chase scenes involving cars that have rubber tires that never go flat even when they are shot, burned, and poked. (Where can I by a set of those?) Everybody drives furiously in one direction, then they all just turn around and drive furiously all the way back to where they started. The movie takes place in a post apocalyptic desert world where Imperator Furiosa, a one-armed big-rig driving Charlize Theron, who has a shaved head and uses axle grease for eye makeup but still looks as good as her cargo of half-naked supermodels, including Elvis' granddaughter. She's smuggling the women out of the community to save them from a life of sex slavery. Everybody in the community is poor and starving, milling around waiting for some water to trickle-down to them from the god-like leaders (Reaganomics in action) but the way Furiosa chooses to rebel is to save only a group of young and pretty girls and bring them to a happier place. She's not exactly a populist.

In the opening scene, we see a two-headed lizard standing on a rock behind a guy named Max, who's mad, probably because this movie isn't really about him. (It should have been called "Furiosa.") The lizard runs towards him, stopping and starting. He's facing the opposite direction and can't see it, but as soon as it reaches his feet he stomps his boot down on it without looking, picks it up and eats it heads first. Now that we know just how bad-ass he is, the chase scenes begin.
