Mad Max is an exciting action film with some unbelievable stunts and car crashes that are a sight to see!

I tought the plot was so weak. I've got to admit I was excepting way more of the beginning of this franchise. However the acting was good and the action scenes were thrilling. Loved the performance by Hugh Keays-Byrne

Although the film feels underwhelming at points, it hits the mark emotionally. The action is well captured, and the film can be really masterful at points, however the villains are not developed at all, and the revenge plot kicks in far too late. That being said, it's easily the most story-heavy Mad Max movie, which I appreciated.

This is a great movie but it's a bit forgettable. Its plot is about a cop who's tired of his job and wants to retire. After he kills a member of a gang, the other members try to get revenge on him and his family. The rest of the film, he has to survive them. The movie has a barren and rundown environment which draws the viewer into it. Mel Gibson did a great performance as a man whose tired of being a cop because he's seen way too many cops die. The movie takes a dark turn at the end and it makes one of the most memorable movie scenes of the decade. Its choice makes it into a cult classic. I do feel that it slowed down a bit at the middle though. In that time, we got to know the characters but I would've rather seen more action. It's still a pretty intriguing movie and it's pretty interesting. Sure the sequel is better but this is still a great movie. Fans of action movies will likely enjoy this movie because it's a great example of its genre.

There is a reason why Mad Max remains a cult classic, George Miller created a violent apocalyptic world where fuels are now scarce and violent gangs terrorise people. Mel Gibson was the star of this film in his very early film career, he truly did a marvellous job playing the titular character. Overall, Mad Max has enough car stunts to satisfy action buffs, even if the acting was not the greatest.

Mad Max? More like mildly irritated Max. Still fascinating to see how this whole franchise began.

Ok start to the franchise

It's just the pre-cursor to the mayhem that's to follow. It's just a nice and simple exploitation flick. George Miller shows stylistic flourishes here that are new for the time and while it's not as fulfilling story-wise as it should be, it's still fun.

Mad Max Mostra uma vingança sem escalas,uma atuação mais que perfeita do Mel Gibson e personagens muito bem criados nesse universo muito perfeito de George Miller.

A piece of crap compared to second one. Saw it years ago but don't remember that it was this awful.

Some of the "greats" age wonderfully, proving to be both artistic and technological marvels that stand the test of time. At least George Miller's future camera flair is evident so early.

Doesn't age the best - but really is worth seeing for the vision of the director and all the pretty stunning physical effects. Excellent revenge movie.

The one that started it all.
Mad Max, is a movie that had so much trouble being made, but it really became it's own thing. The movie itself might be boring for some people, but it's interesting to watch it was some nice stunts and intense car action.

Great film with consideration of its age. Mad Max has the edge and car stunts that delivers originality.

The first and the best in a series of movies Mad Max. Mad Max was the first Miller's movie, and he made a huge effort to film it because he had a problem with a lack of money. How much money was missing shows the fact that about 20% of the action scenes are not recorded according to plan, Mazda Bongo car destroyed in the opening scene of the movie belonged to the director Miller and only two main actors had jackets of real leather, while all the others were copies. But that did not stop him to create a truly timeless classic. This futuristic movie, in which he managed to capture the special atmosphere of the raw and cruel world, is holding the Guinness record for most profitable movie. Mad Max is a hell of a good ride, but what makes the movie special is also the story, that other Mad Max movies do not have.
