Movie Reviews

Mel's got a car and he knows how to use it.

"Look, any longer out on that road and I'm one of them, a terminal psychotic, except that I've got this bronze badge that says that I'm one of the good guys."

Mad Max is all about vehicle fueled vengeance. A young Mel Gibson plays a lawman in a near-future, gang infested Australia. His encounters with a especially vile gang result in a deadly attack on his wife and infant son, and the last act of the movie focuses on his single-minded payback on those responsible.

Mad Max is certainly low-budget, but the movie doesn't really suffer from it. It is dated, however, and so many movies with similar premises have been made in the last thirty years that this one doesn't make nearly as much of an impression now as it probably did back in 1979. Watching this is a near-requirement for fans of Mel Gibson, but for everyone else, it's a decent movie that should be seen more for its classic status than its current entertainment value.

How did this become big again?

I've been hearing a lot about this franchise and decided to start at the beginning. This movie is not worth watching. There isn't a plot. Its just a collection of really, really boring scenes. Can this even be called a movie? That's a genuine question. This is a huge confusing mess. What am I supposed to get out of this movie? Its a series of shots of people standing around sometimes talking (usually not) and not having actual conversations. I guess its not a movie for people with brains?

I've been reading other people's reviews and the only reason I can see as to why its good is the sequels. I can't find any reasons why people like this? I get the sequels are good, but why do you like this particular movie?

I am the Nightrider. I'm a fuel injected suicide machine. I am the rocker, I am the roller, I am the ... i am bored

This movie has triggered the same thoughts and feelings on me as Highlander and I have to say exactly the same in this review as in the Highlander review. Seen by two things First, I understand why this movie has become a cult here are some ideas and longings that you've never seen before, at least not in this form and certainly not in a low budget movie. You can not see George Miller having the money nor the opportunity to build all that luster, but my goodness he did everything he could and luckily he can do a lot. Secondly, I do not think I ever saw a movie made from two different films welded together and actually works. I mean, it's a post apocalyptic film about police and street gangs but the last half hour is a Revenge movie that also has other music and was filmed differently and yet, all together, it's better to have a jigsaw puzzler and give it an interesting overall picture. I can now say hard what I like better, I like revenge movies, I also love movies with gangs, police and so on but both works are not really gooood here but the stunts are. I know that one of the films is the other filmmaker well apart from the scene at the end that was copied in Saw I could not see anything special out there.
