Synopsis:
In the annals of action movies few can compare with 'Mad Max 2', a full-throttle epic of speed and carnage that rockets you into a dreamlike landscape where the post-nuclear future meets the mythological past. More simply, its also one of the most mind-blowing stunt movies ever made. Max (Mel Gibson) the heroic loner who drives the roads of outback Australia in an unending search for gasoline. Arrayed against him and the other scraggly defenders of a fuel-depot encampment are the bizarre warriors commanded by the Humungus (Kjell Nilsson), notorious for never taking prisoners when they can pulverise them instead.
When the battle is joined, the results are savage, spectacular and with Mad Max 2 on your side, screen action doesnt get any better.

Mad Max : The Road Warrior - Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior review by SS

Spoiler Alert
10/10/2023

This is the best action film ever because the stunts you see in the film are real - no CGI rubbish. Forget Fury Road, which was full of CGI because this is the real thing. When you consider that both this and Raiders of the Lost Ark were released in the same year but with Raiders costing around five times as much the action is very "staged" in Raiders especially the Tibet bar fight and truck chase or as I call it "very Hollywood". Gibson is a very brooding anti-hero in this and little dialogue is needed. If you want to watch a "raw" peice of Australian film making at its best I highly recommend this because you will not be disappointed.

Absolute Classic - Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior review by GI

Spoiler Alert
26/10/2023

One of the best examples of where a sequel is superior to the original film. Set after a nuclear holocaust and former cop Max (Mel Gibson) now roams the Australian wasteland forever in search of precious fuel, the new gold. He helps a struggling band of survivors who have refined a large amount of petrol but who are besieged by a horde of violent thugs intent on stealing it. Director George Miller had a bigger budget after his first film became huge in Australia although failed to find an audience in the USA (it was a modest hit in the UK though). With an interesting vision of a post apocalyptic future and incorporating mythological storylines Mad Max 2 (also known as The Road Warrior - the American title) is the ultimate action movie, probably only surpassed by 2015s Mad Max: Fury Road. The final chase sequence itself lasts 13 minutes and with a downbeat ending this is a film with little dialogue but builds on legend by utilising western genre tropes. This certainly launched Gibson's international career and has become an example of narrative structure in film analysis. It's a mini masterpiece and remains as exciting as it was on initial release.
