MAD MAX 2: THE ROAD WARRIOR (1981)

The-Road-Warrior1

A film by George Miller

Cast: Mel Gibson, Bruce Spence, Michael Preston

Here is this film that has not much of a plot and little dialogue but has this furious vision of the post-apocalyptic world set in the future that is violent as hell. The film takes place in the future where civilization has collapse and violence reign and they are killing each other over a little bit of what is left of gasoline. The vehicles are what is left from the other world before they are remade to certain specification even the motorcycles, and there are this customized race cars. The costumes are also customized of what was left of the special flashing blue light at Kmart. it is a fiesta of road warrior, week-end warrior, hells angel, gangs, and kamikaze. Mel Gibson at the time was not that big he is now. An Australian actor trying to make it, he reprise his role as Mad Max.

The plot is so simple it is not even funny,  a group of people are trying to protect their gasoline and an other group of people are trying to put their hands on it. Max drives a tanker full of gasoline through the surrounding warriors and take it a few hundred miles to the coast, where they hope to find safety. It is like a Sci-fi cowboy movie the violence comes and goes speed chase people dying left and right, they will do practically anything to get this tanker full of gasoline.The special effects and stunts in this movie are spectacular. Well George Miller has done a very skillful film and what an extravaganza that was. You are going to need a beer after this one.

I am studying to be an Infographics/special effect for movies. I will put the best films on my website no exception. It is like I am evolving with it, I am constantly redoing stuff on it. So have fun with it and thank you for visiting.

  1. Mad Max 2 is one of the few sequels I can think of that is even better then the original.
    It definitely benefits from a bigger budget and its setting in an even bleaker post apocalyptic world. For my money it’s the best of the trilogy.
