Has there ever been a movie action hero more kickass than Imperator Furiosa?

Hands down, the answer is a very resounding "NO!" Furiosa is the action hero we have needed for a very long time: strong, yet very humanly weak; driven by vengeance, but not at the cost of morality. She is true to herself and her cause.

Too much has been made of her gender. Furiosa is not so easily defined. She can be labelled many ways (woman, hero, badass), but none of these labels can do justice to the complex character that so fiercely dominates Fury Road.

I can only thank George Miller, Charlize Theron, Tom Hardy, and all the rest of the cast and crew of Fury Road for creating an indelible film character that will inspire, provoke, and stimulate discussion for many years to come.
