This film revolves around the quest they encounter.This film retained its surround sound along with VFX.
‘Mad Max‘(2015) Two rebels, one escaping grief and the other reaching out to her childhood, are the last hope for a few.Very interesting film but can be described as a triumph of barking-mad imagination, jaw-dropping action, crackpot humor like acting in the face of a hurricane.This film starring Tom Hardy & Charlize Theron is a must see for the adventurous.Directed & written by George Miller this film got a $378.9 million at the box office.
Some dialogues are monumental in Hollywood films like…”I’m going to make him an offer he can’t refuse,” from The Godfather & “They call it a Royale with cheese.” from Pulp Fiction, 1994….These films have gone down in history.
Hollywood’s action & screenplay is remarkable.Some films by Jackie Chan like ‘Around the World in 80 days’ & ‘Shanghai Noon’ will be treasured for centuries to come.
If Bollywood is the ‘Mother of Cinema‘… Hollywood films are rightly the ‘Baap‘ of cinema.
