Mad Max 2 is simply one of the hottest, liveliest, most entertaining sf films to come down the freeway in a long time.

Miller, the storyteller, recites the entire legend of Mad Max within The Road Warrior, and it's a vision that echoes far beyond the reach of a single film.

There's plenty at tension, some humor and a lot of polish, but, finally, it isn't any more memorable than your last fill-up at the service station.
