Road Warrior

( 11 )

Overview

Warner Home Video's version of Road Warrior isn't as barren as the Australian outback, but it's not as feature-packed as this influential action flick deserves. Menus that prominently sport the WB logo add to the disc's low-budget feel. But Warner put the movie into DVD format early, in 1997, so this is the price they (and viewers) pay for being early adopters. This version does include text-heavy but interesting production notes, a trailer that calls the movie Mad Max 2 (the Australian title), and a remastered ...

Overview

Menus that prominently sport the WB logo add to the disc's low-budget feel. But Warner put the movie into DVD format early, in 1997, so this is the price they (and viewers) pay for being early adopters. This version does include text-heavy but interesting production notes, a trailer that calls the movie Mad Max 2 (the Australian title), and a remastered 5.1 soundtrack that makes those car crashes sound pretty darn good. Both the sound and picture quality, however, don't hold up consistently throughout the film (it was made in the early '80s, after all). The widescreen anamorphic aspect ratio is 2.35:1, but movie buffs nostalgic for cable TV can also switch to the full-screen version. There's also a French audio track (Dolby 2.0), Spanish subtitles, and English subtitles -- perhaps useful for Americans who'd rather read along than try to decipher the Aussie accents.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
Mad Max 2 (The Road Warrior) is a pure expression of cinematic existentialism. The characters spend their time driving through a barren, post-apocalyptic world looking for gasoline so that they can continue to drive around the desert and find more gasoline. Of course, there's an exciting action movie thrown in as well. The loner protagonist at the center of our attention is again Max (Mel Gibson), who in the first Mad Max lost his wife and child to a murderous bunch of thugs. Max retreats from society, living the life of a scavenger in the "wasteland." It might be a sci-fi setting, but Max is a direct descendant of classic Western and film noir antiheroes. He looks out for himself and only himself, and there's only a very fine line between him and the bad guys. The setup of the "reluctant savior" rescuing the stranded "villagers" is about as traditional a storyline as you can get, and the movie precedents are no less obvious: it's Seven Samurai and The Magnificent Seven (minus the six other guys). Following the success of this movie, Gibson became an international star. Talented writer/director George Miller has gone on to mixed financial success as a producer and director, but has consistently produced interesting and original material. The infamous Kevin Costner vehicle Waterworld is basically a remake of Mad Max II in an aquatic setting.

    The Road Warrior

    The greatest movie of all time (and my absoulute favorite). The car chases are just speechless and the movie doesn't seem boring but just plain entertaining. Hated the first but the third one was okay. Watch out for the forth and most likely the final Mad Max movie ever I think titled Fury Road.
