Summary: The start of the movie was really good and the characters are done and acted really well, but what the heck was the rest? After about 40 minutes, I waited 15 minutes for it to get interesting, then another 15 and I was done. My buddy was bored stiff too.
Summary: Despite the films low-budget, Mad Max is a gritty cop movie classic, that has some of the most astounding and realistic car chases and road stunts ever committed to film, that helps to bring Millers & Kennedy's vision to life of a brutal and violent future where the world is breaking down into...
Summary: Honestly, the first Mad Max was good. But it shouldn't have been part of the trilogy, because this is the only one NOT during the apocalypse. If you think of it in the way that this has no sequels, it's a masterpiece.
Summary: Skip this movie and go straight to Mad Max 2. The concept is interesting and the cars and costumes are cool, but, as my son said, "It's just a bunch of stupid action and everybody dies." There's just no sense of a storyline. It's one chase scene after another.
Summary: I didn't really enjoy this movie as much as everyone. It was just slow and I never felt like something really important happened. I think it's great as an introduction to the other movies of the franchise, but as a single film, I didn't like it.
Summary: Mad Max is a good movie. It has great, memorable moments but the crudeness of this film may deter viewers from watching the rest of the series. It's low budget crudeness, did however, create a world that would pave the way for the rest of the series and its hero, Max.
Summary: I felt this film was pretty bad overall really, with pretty campy acting and overused music for 'dramatic effect'. HOWEVER, I understand the australian film scene was not big at this time and there were budget constraints, but it seemed like the script was pretty poorly written, and the plot of this...
Summary: The first film "Mad Max" over all was a hell of a good ride! what makes the film bad ass and beautiful is the action sequences also the story. Writer/director mastermind George Miller demonstrates breakneck prowess at chase sequences and a shock value story.
Summary: This movie is one of the best low budget films of the 80's. It tells the story of Max Rockatansky, a cop who is really commited to the law. When the world starts falling apart around him and his wife gets killed before his eyes, Max decides to hunt down her killers and ends them.
