Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior

The first film made the leading actor a star, before his breakthrough in Lethal Weapon of course, it was low budget, the sequel obviously moved up a gear, is still traumatised, following the death of his wife and child. Max roams the wilderness, scavenging for food and fuel in a scarred, black supercharged V-8 Pursuit Special, his only companions are an Australian Cattle Dog and a sawn-off shotgun with limited ammunition. Max is confronted by a biker gang, led by the unhinged biker warrior Wez (Vernon Wells), and then he encounters a Gyro Captain (Bruce Spence), piloting a boobytrapped autogyro, and tries to steal its petrol. The Gyro Captain is spared his life after telling Max about a small oil refinery nearby, but he finds the compound under siege by a motley gang of racers and motorcyclists called the Marauders, Wez is a member, their leader is a large disfigured man called "Lord Humungus" (Kjell Nilsson). Max bides his time and makes his move when a group of settlers attempt a break out of the compound with a fuel tank, while most are captured and subjected to torture, there is a lone survivor, the man shortly dies from his wounds. Max attempted to return him to the other settlers, their leader is Pappagallo (Michael Preston), they are on the verge of killing him, when the Marauders return, despite Wez wanting revenge for the death of his partner, killed with a metal boomerang, Humungus will allow the settlers to leave the territory unharmed in exchange for fuel. Max offers another deal to Pappagallo: an abandoned semi-truck to haul the fuel tanker, for him and the settlers, in exchange for petrol and his freedom, they accept, but keep his car. Max reaches the semi-truck, with the help of the Gyro Captain, with aerial support he drives it through the Marauders into the compound where a siege is being reignited by Humungus. Max abandons the settlers, wanting him to escape with them to a beach, he collects the petrol and leaves, but he is run off the road and wounded by Wez in Humingus's stolen nitrous oxide-equipped car. A Marauder kills Max's dog with a crossbow, then the Toadie (Max Phipps) unintentionally kills himself and two Marauders in an explosion, attempting to siphon the fuel. Max if left for dead, but the Gyro Captain rescues him, despite his injuries, Max insists driving the repaired and now armoured truck with a fuel tanker from the compound, the Feral Kid (Emil Minty), Papagallo and several settlers in armored vehicles accompany him for protection. Lord Humungus and most of his warriors pursue the tanker, remaining settlers flee the compound in a ramshackle caravan, and the compound is rigged to explode, Papagallo and the defenders are killed in the chase, the Gyro Captain is shot down, and Max and the Feral Kid are alone against Wez and the Marauders. A head-on collision between Humungus in his car and Wez in an out-of-control truck kills them both, the surviving Marauders leave, then Max rescuing the Feral Kid finds that the wrecked tanker is filled with sand, instead of oil, this was a decoy to allow the other settlers to escape with the precious fuel. With Papagallo dead, the Gyro Captain becomes the new chief, he leads the settlers to the coast, to establish the "Great Northern Tribe", while Max remains alone in the desert, and returns to becoming a drifter, the adult Feral Kid (Harold Baigent) reminisces about him, calling him the Road Warrior. Also starring Virginia Hey as Warrior Woman, Arkie Whiteley as The Captain's Girl, Steve J. Spears as Mechanic and Syd Heylen as Curmudgeon. Gibson remains just about as gritty and charismatic as before, this entry has much more of dystopian atmosphere than before, the story is just about easy to follow, and there are plenty more stunts, chases sequences and explosions, most of which deliver, overall a worthwhile futuristic action adventure. Mel Gibson was number 47 on The 100 Greatest Sex Symbols, and number 17 on The 100 Greatet Movies Stars. Good!

Mad Max 2 is Australia's best action-flick of the 80s.

The 80s were a unique and evolutionary time for movies everywhere: barriers were being pushed the world over, George Lucas broke new-ground on what was possible for movie sequels: by NOT making the same movie again and upping and ante on the characters and story, Blade Runner gave cinema the most beautiful flying cars ever conceived in the world of cinema, historical cinema was reinvigorated by Amadeus, The Terminator gave us film's most iconic Austrian cyborg, Back to the Future brought old-mixed-with-the-new to the movies, AKIRA pushed Japanese animation into the international spotlight and Who Framed Roger Rabbit was the first great 'crossover' movie. So where does Mad Max 2 fit into all of this? It introduced 'post-apocalyptic-dystopia' to the world and along with it a legacy of further Mad Max sequels, comic books, video games and a shit-tone of rip-offs and pastiche.

Mad Max 2 was further proof that leading man Mel Gibson was more than fit to lead an action movie of this kind, and this movie alongside many others from the 80s blazed waves throughout the film-industry, and its impact can still be felt to this very day. Modern action movies owe so much to Mel and George Miller. Without this, we probably wouldn't have had the influx of over-the-top car chases thanks to this masterpiece. Need I say more?

Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior is the best classic epic Post-Apocalyptic Action Science Fiction film in the Mad Max Franchise.

Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior is a 1981 Australian post-apocalyptic action film directed by George Miller. The film is the second installment in the Mad Max film series, with Mel Gibson starring as Max Rockatansky.

I grew up with the Mad Max films and Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior Is my personal favorite best epic Post-Apocalyptic Action Classic Science Fiction film. I always loved The Road Warrior to death this film stayed in my heart. Fury Road and The Road Warrior are Equal for me so I am ranting them 10 and I always tried to take the first film of the Max series as the best one in the franchise but I couldn't, because it is just too dark is not post apocalyptic film enough, it has Drama between the film and the plot starts slow which becomes really boring. The Road Warrior is the opposite of Mad Max which just stayed in my heart and I just love this movie to death and I always will. Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior still remains one of the most exhilarating action films to ever grace the screen. The car chases are as excitingly pulse-pounding as ever and no film has yet to surpass the final chase as the best in movie history. Yes, in terms of pure action, not many films have been able to equal The Road Warrior's thrills.

Mel Gibson remains the only world-renowned actor in the whole film. He does a terrific job as the character Max, one of his best and most interesting characters. The development of Max is another intriguing component of The Road Warrior, and serves the film by giving it a human edge by featuring Max's slow transformation from loner to savior. Not only that, Gibson also creates a great action hero. There's not a moment in the film when we aren't rooting for Max to smash Humungus and his gang.The Humungus and Wez for me were the best villains ever in the film. Bruce Spence as the gyro-pilot is decent in his role and offers the film's few humorous moments. And also he has a lot of scenes and a lot of things to do in this film. Like flying that flayer helping Max saving him, fighting against Humungus thugs. Emil Minty as The Feral Kid is awesome. The old man as the narrator from the beginning of the film is The Feral Kid, I love the relationship between him and Max. That's what I love in this film the acting is TERRIFIC from the actors. Virginia Hey as Warrior Woman is beautiful and fantastic in this movie. I seriously loved how she acted towards Max that he isn't trust worthy, he needed to win her trust. I love Max's dog he was so better than in the first movie the other dog was. You could even see a personality in this dog.

I love this movie to death and will always be in my heart Forever. For me Mel Gibson is the only Mad Max Rockatansky!

Grade: Bad Ass Seal Of Approval 10/10 Awesome Post/Apocalyptic/Action Classic/Science Fiction film.
