The War Rig sequences, through their rapid-fire ingenuity, best showcase Miller’s vision of unsettling, dystopic abandon. Beyond these, Furiosa leans a bit too heavily into deranged campness. Chris Hemsworth walks a particularly wobbly tightrope. Alyla Browne and Anya Taylor-Joy are more convincing.

Most of the film is played for laughs. Chris Hemsworth just about gets away with it but the humour is undercut by consciously hammy acting and ‘unkillable god’ computer-game action scenes. Christian Bale rules the starker moments, channelling his inner Richard O’Brien.
