She has kidnapped the breeders of the raving ruler, The Immortal Joe, to take them to safety. She encounters Mad Max[Tom Hardy], a silent warrior carrying the ghosts from his past. She is on a vehicular, violent journey to her homeland amidst mayhem. A visionary film [the director has taken a bold step by giving a dominant role to a woman in this latest edition- drawing praises from feminists & critics]. Charlize is remarkable as Furiosa; with an amputated arm, a spearing stare & a clenched jaw she delivers what many would fail to achieve with pages full of dialogues.

This action comedy stars Melissa McCarthy, Jason Statham & Jude Law in a female Spy-comic version of James Bond. The undisputed Queen of comedy plays a CIA agent who graduates from desk to being a field agent. Statham surprises his fans with his crazy performance; a deviation from his otherwise strict- only for Action image. McCarthy provides abundance of belly laughter in her unique stunt as a Spy. Jude Law lends the romantic angle to this Unsung, Hilarious Heroine, who attains her goals minus the guns & gadgets.
5. Furious 7:
The 7th installment of the incredible “Fast & the Furious” series, stars Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson, Michelle Rodrigues & Paul Walker [in his final performance]. This high voltage, thrilling movie- with over the top stunts, makes it worthy as one of the top Franchise in Hollywood. The “AIR DROP” stunt, with the cars being dropped from a plane above a desert; the jumping off a bus on a cliff sequence [a scene executed without special effects] & the “MOUNTAIN HIGHWAY CAR CHASE” are Exceptional. The film has a combination of computer generated special effects & chosen camera angels, using Paul Walker’s brother to stimulate his appearance.
6. Jurassic World:
