This was the first of 3 films. And which spawned a whole load of copy cat style films.
Sadly this one was done on a budget of about $10 but the filming story and action is the best in a road movie you could name and would beat most big budget films out today (2005) I kid you not.
The opening chase sequence sets the scene for the rest of the film which is centred around a cop, Max who turns rogue after a personal disaster and takes off in a journey or revenge against the lawless bikers.
Great chase sequences, believable characters and to top it all features one of the best looking and meanest cars in movie history! An Australian Ford Falcon supercharged V8
This is a raw film with a hard edge to it. Watch it!
Mad Max2 (The Road Warrior) was the sequel with a much bigger budget and was only slightly better than the brilliant first film. His mean supercharged car returns in a whole new livery and looked simply gorgeous! Great characters and an excellant story line
Mad Max beyond Thunderdome was the third film, and despite having an even bigger budget, this time they got the mix wrong (in my opinion) think of the Goonies type action sequences and you won't be far wrong. Still good to watch but it's the lesser of the bunch.
All three films are well worth watching, especially if you're a motorhead like me. LOL!
