August 25, 2008
Exhilarating entertainment -- and a textbook for sophisticated, popular moviemaking.
June 10, 2008
A straightforward action/adventure film, filled to the brim with over-the-top chases and stunts.
May 30, 2007
A film of pure action, of kinetic energy organized around the barest possible bones of a plot.
May 30, 2007
Director Miller keeps the pic moving with cyclonic force, photography by Dean Semler is first class, editing is supertight, and Brian May's music is stirring.
May 30, 2007
For pure rhythm and visual panache, Miller has few real competitors; the climactic chase, with its deft variation of tempo and point of view, is a minor masterpiece.
June 24, 2006
Miller's choreography of his innumerable vehicles is so extraordinary that it makes Spielberg's Raiders of the Lost Ark look like a kid fooling with Dinky Toys.

At just over ninety minutes, there's not an ounce of fat on the thing, and it whizzes along like the souped-up V8 Interceptor that the title character tools around in.

Out of the countless action movies produced in the 1980s, there only a few genuine works of art; [this film] might very well be the best of that extremely rarefied company.
May 13, 2015
Miller doesn't take his foot off the accelerator for a second, and the ingeniously designed and staged road action is stunning.
May 13, 2015
The sets, costumes, makeup, special effects and stunts are all first-rate, as is Gibson's performance.
May 3, 2015
...a nutty, B-movie masterpiece.
June 4, 2013
A disappointingly half-assed treatment of a legendary post-apocalyptic action series that boasts two indisputable genre classics.
May 30, 2007
An all-action movie that delivers all the violence and entertainment you could want.
May 30, 2007
Gibson is suprisingly uncharismatic, but Miller makes up for it with whizz bang action.
May 30, 2007
Perhaps needless to say, this is the film that made Mel Gibson an international star.
May 9, 2007
It's fairly compact at ninety-five minutes, and there is never a dull moment. (HD-DVD edition)
May 9, 2007
Few action flicks move as fast or as relentlessly as The Road Warrior.
August 4, 2006
I was still mightily entertained by Max, loooooooooved the way that those action scenes were shot by Mr. Miller and appreciated the whole mythology of the Max character.
July 22, 2006
Miller has just as much to say about human behavior and industrialization as he does about fast cars.
