Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Mad Max: Fury Road -- the fourth film in the Mad Max series and the first in decades -- is a reboot of sorts, with Tom Hardy taking over for Mel Gibson in the title role. It's extremely violent, with nonstop chase scenes, explosions, deaths, blood, shooting, and stabbing, as well as violence against women (including a bloody scene involving a pregnant woman), nightmarish flashbacks, diseased flesh, and other disturbing imagery. Several imprisoned women are attached to machines that pump their breast milk, and some of the female characters (some of whom are played by supermodels) are treated as sexual objects, shown wearing skimpy clothing while washing. One woman is naked, but viewers only see her behind. No strong language is clearly heard, but much of the dialogue is obscured by the thundering sound effects. Drinking, drugs, and smoking aren't issues. Even though this franchise hasn't had a new entry in more than a generation, it's likely that strong buzz will attract all kinds of teen moviegoers.

Sexual Content

Several young "wives" are seen as sex symbols, wearing skimpy clothing and shown washing. A naked woman is used as bait; her bottom is shown. Several wet nurses are shown having their breasts pumped for milk; they're covered by machinery.

Violence

Intense, constant violence of all kinds, including against women. Characters die in explosions and car crashes and are shot and stabbed with arrows. A pregnant woman dies; the dead baby is cut from her womb (mostly off screen). Fighting, chasing. Nightmare sequences/flashbacks. Disturbing images. Diseased flesh. Blood transfusions.

Language

No strong language is clearly heard, but much of the dialogue is obscured by the thundering sound effects.

Social Behavior

Selfishness and resource hoarding are clearly seen as "bad guy" behavior, while sharing and altruism are valued. Amid the violent action chaos, very different people learn to work together to achieve a common goal.

Consumerism

Not applicable

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Warriors inhale paint fumes; the intended purpose isn't specified, but it could be interpreted as a way to get high.
