Decent yet flawed this Mel Gibson George Miller is fine but slowed paced and a bit borning but not a bad film
Honestly, I had never seen the first Mad Max movie, and frankly, you don't need to watch it to be familiarized with the universe. It basically just focuses on Max being a cop for an hour and then, when he finally becomes Mad Max, the movie just ends ! I would say it kept it's charm, but didn't age that well.....
Looking back at how influential this movie has become, Mad Max offers what a great series of car chases and destruction, bringing the violent, post-apocalyptic world the series will be best known for and a very good performance by Mel Gibson to keep this classic fresh for many years. Worth a watch to see how influential this movie has had in the world of cinema~
The film that launched the career of Mel Gibson Mad Max has today become a massive franchise, but the first film was a low budget adventure across the Australian landscape that enthralled audiences. The essential formula is straightforward and involves a lot of fights and chases. The films' appeal is strictly visceral; one can pretty much shut down the higher functioning areas of the brain. Perhaps the most surprising thing about the Mad Max movies (I credit director George Miller for this) is that, despite a certain amount of repetition, the films never threaten to become routine. There's a sense of spontaneity to each action set piece, and we're never sure exactly how things will turn out. What begins as a fairly typical action/adventure movie turns into a revenge tale. The ending is stark, and there's not much catharsis to be had when Max achieves his aim. George Miller understands how to make action sequences (especially chase scenes) exciting and his sustained cuts lend a clarity to the proceedings.
The third act is great, but that didn't make the whole movie great
Literally unwatchable. Took the film out after 25 minutes...
A post-apocalyptic world that has fast cars doing some cool stunts.
Basically a revenge story set in a post-apocalyptic world, this fast-moving movie is populated with a bunch of wild characters and offers lots of inventively staged action and mayhem, made by a director with obvious talent for this genre.
Pretty Dark, along the lines of terminator, clockwork orange, somewhat thrilling/entertaining to watch, lot's of chasing car scenes, action/suspense/horror
Filme sensacional. Tudo que gosto, sociedade pÃ³s apocalÃtica, corridas e motores e desejo de vinganÃ§a. Mel Guibson mandou bem!
