Fury Road ranks third behind The Road Warrior and Mad Max, but clearly annihilates the joke that was Beyond Thunderdome (the movie that killed the franchise for 30 years). The movie is a giant post-apocalyptic car chase, a simple yet cool premise that works quite well.
The Max character is squashed into a side-character with very little purpose. He's just sort of "there", and this is a constant reminder of the fact that Mel Gibson has been replaced with Tom Hardy. If George Miller's plan is to keep these movies going with new actors playing Max (as he has stated), then he will need to find a strong actor who can handle the job and one who the director feels confident enough to center the story around. Max's face is also hidden behind a mask for the first chunk of the movie. Finally, every ad has Charlize Theron's big head prominently placed halfway in front of the masked side-view of our new non-Max character.
Much of the CGI is unnecessary and cheapens the look of the movie. It's been decades since the last Mad Max movie, and much has changed, but all the new technology doesn't really improve things here.
Overall a fun movie and very fitting within the "Mad Max Universe", but more like an offshoot of the series.
