Why Every College Girl Should See Mad Max: Fury Road

Action movies have long been dominated by men. While women occasionally get headline roles (as in the Hunger Games and Divergent series), female action films have been rare. With the series usually dominated by men, George Miller’s Mad Max, has been reinvented this year with a surprisingly girl-power take. Before you give up on action flicks as being “just for the guys,” look at these top five reasons to check out Mad Max: Fury Road. Check this film out as a part of your relaxing summer.

1.   Despite the name, “Mad Max”, Max isn’t the hero—or even the main character.

While they definitely take place in the same world as the old Mel Gibson Mad Max movies from the ‘80s, this movie isn’t nearly as much about Max and his macho actions. Tom Hardy, who does add some eye candy, is still prominent throughout the film. However, the majority of the movie is more about Charlize Theron’s Furiosa and her attempt to help several other young women escape from a crazed, tyrannical warlord.

2.   They save themselves.

In most male-dominated action movies, it is the woman who is captured, tortured, and in need of saving. But in Fury Road, Max is kidnapped by roving bandits within the first ten minutes and only escapes by luck, coincidence, and force. Furiosa and her gang of brides and mothers are instead the driving force of the group’s escape. They call the shots and use their brains, skill, and drive to get to their destination.

3.   The women aren’t just one dimensional.

Crying, screaming, and occasionally kicking: that’s usually the role of a woman in an action film. There’s usually no depth, no backstory. They are just the pretty face in need of a man to save them. In this movie, Furiosa and the mothers she is saving use their own brand of cunning, guile, sensitivity, and (when necessary) violence to write their own destinies.

4.   Girls can hit!

Even in more female-centric action films like The Hunger Games and Divergent, the female characters are often more hesitant than their male counterparts to throw a punch. Not so in Fury Road. When confronted by a wild, maniacal Max in an early scene of the film, Furiosa doesn’t hold back even a second: she swings for the fences and knocks out Max. More impressively, when a three-way battle between Furiosa, Max, and Nux erupts, it takes the combined efforts of Max and Nux to subdue Furiosa, who even then doesn’t back down.

5.   The female stars don’t have to be “masculine” to still kick butt.

There have been times (beyond The Hunger Games and Divergent) in which women have taken a butt-kicking lead such as in The Matrix, Kill Bill, and Aliens. Yet those movies all had one major thing in common: the female lead took on “masculine” roles, which meant sacrificing their femininity. Fury Road proves that females can still be identifiably women, flipping the script on femininity.

The last scene of Mad Max: Fury Road shows women literally rising to the top. It’s a shot that should get any girl standing on their feet, especially those who have felt uninspired or powerless. What Fury Road teaches women is that they are in control of their own destiny and can serve as their own hero. After watching two hours’ worth of the ladies take down the action movie stereotypes, you’ll be wanting more.
