ROAD WARRIOR - DVD Movie
A strong candidate for the designation of most thrilling action movie ever made (the turbo-charged exhilaration of its full-throttle highway chases has never been equaled), the second part of George Miller's post-apocalyptic trilogy is also a magnificently imagined movie myth. Like the Star Wars trilogy (by that other George) the Mad Max films draw their inspiration from the works of mythologist Joseph Campbell. In the 1979 original, Max (Mel Gibson) is a policeman, the last guardian of civilization and order in a devastated world reduced to chaos. But when a leather-clad gang of sadomasochistic speed demons mows down Max's family, his remaining connections to humanity are also permanently severed. After brutally exacting his revenge, Max wanders off into the wasteland alone, "a burned out shell of a man" who (to paraphrase The Searchers) is destined to wander forever between the winds. In The Road Warrior, Max rediscovers a sliver of his shattered humanity, and a spark of redemption, when he helps an embattled colony of pioneers fight off the savages who are after that most precious of all commodities: "guzzline." Max is transformed into a legendary hero, just as Mel Gibson was catapulted to international movie stardom. With its final stirring images, The Road Warrior transcends its genre (whatever that may be--science fiction? Western? action adventure?) and becomes something timeless. It's a great movie. --Jim Emerson --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.See all Product Description
Best Mad Max movie from the original series.....although Fury Road is taking it to a new level.Published 17 days ago by Amazon Customer
Excellent movie. Would have liked more bonus features. Only had commentary and intro.
My old vhs copy had more behind the scenes bonus features.
This is the most perfect movie ever made. I'm not calling it the best, I am calling it perfect, from a movie making or story telling point of view. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Snowblind
