The film also stars Chris Hemsworth, Tom Burke, Nathan Jones, and Angus Sampson in significant roles. Judging by the synopsis, we expect an action epic on a scale that only Miller can pull off. 'Fury Road' is widely regarded as the best action movie of all time, and deservedly so. It featured the most insane visuals and nearly all of it was practical with the most madcap stunt work ever put on screen. 

'Fury Road' was a box office success and also received universal critical acclaim with a 97 per cent score on Rotten Tomatoes.
