Product Description

Road Warrior, The (BD)


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.

i don't know who's decision it was, but the fact that this new release STILL hasn't been corrected to match the theatrical / original colour timing, makes me VERY sad.

it seems like i'll have to continue watching the dvd (which has the original orange yellow cast over the film, that makes it truly look like a desert WASTELAND)

i don't get it.

WRECKING the look of a film should be ILLEGAL. lol

at least this new release has a lossless DTS-MA audio track. (the original blu-ray was lossy dolby digital 5.1)

not that i will buy it, as i refuse to watch this film (on blu) due to what has been done to the picture.


i don't care if it's 'sharper' ..... the blu-ray colour timing is awful.

5 stars for the film.

1 star for the picture (based on the current colour timing)

george miller should be freaking out.

i can deal with things like the subtle teal look they gave the new terminator blu-ray ........ but road warrior has been drastically altered , colour-wise ...... (i don't want to see GREEN grass in an apocalyptic wasteland)

buyer beware ......

This _may_ be the best movie of the Mad Max trilogy.
I like a good postapocalyptic thriller as well as the next guy, but _Mad Max_ just wasn't it. In order to pull off a movie along those lines within the constraints of a tight budget, you pretty much have to be John Carpenter (whose _Escape from New York_ is, to my mind at least, a much more appealing movie than the one that launched this trilogy). It was a very cool idea, but too many of the seams showed and there wasn't enough cool stuff to sustain it in spite of its flaws.
_The Road Warrior_ is a different deal. It's a _much_ better movie than its predecessor, and it's sufficiently self-contained that you don't have to have seen the earlier one in order to enjoy it.
You probably already know the story here. After a nuclear war, what remains of human society is teetering on the edge between civilization and barbarism. Max (Mel Gibson in his pre-_Lethal Weapon_ breakout role) is a tormented loner in this world, hovering somewhere between hero and anti-hero as he wanders aimlessly around the Australian Outback in search of 'guzzline' to keep his car running. (You'll have to watch the first film to find out exactly why he's so tormented, but the first few minutes will give you the general idea.)
The plot itself revolves around that selfsame guzzline, of which there's (naturally enough) a widespread shortage. I won't tell you anything else in case you haven't seen it yet.
It's well done. Sure, there's quite a bit here that's designed to appeal to the sensibilities of fans of monster truck rallies and professional wrestling. But there's also a pretty well-realized view of a postapocalyptic civilization and of what it would take to keep that civilization from falling completely apart.

5.0 out of 5 stars Endlessly Imitated, Never Equaled Nov. 7 2003
The Road Warrior is one of those rare sequels that actually improves in every concievable way to the previous movie. The first Mad Max was well concieved, but ultimately, the low budget hindered it in many places. Not so with the Road Warrior, the story, the characters and especially the action are more exciting and interesting than the first.
Developing the post-apocalyptic theme of the first Mad Max, Max is wondering around the Austrailian desert looking for gas and eventually helps a group of people trying to protect their home, possessions and above all gas from a ruthless gang of bikers who look like they were cast from a local leather bar.
While the story sounds fairly generic, the characters and plot rise above what one would normally expect from B-movie action/adventures. However, the real selling point, of course, is still the action. The chase scene at the end, in my opinion, has never been equaled in cinema as far as sheer terror, dread and excitement as the bikers slowly try and demolish the semi-truck driven by Max.
Although the DVD itself is given the spartan treatment as far as extras are concerned, the movie itself is more than enough to warrant purchasing it. A worthy addition to any action fan's library.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Classic & A Must Have For Action Fans Sept. 16 2003
By Mrs B
This 1981 action/adventure is an absolute must have for the true movie lover. It's the second of three in a series, and although I've never seen the first one, I can say that this one puts the third one to shame. The Road Warrior is Max, played by a young Mel Gibson, an ex-cop struggling to survive in the post-apocalyptic backroads of Australia. Civilization as we know it is on the brink of perishing, as gangs of men terrorize the highways in pursuit of the most valuable commodity in these times: gasoline. Max happens upon what appears to be the last of the civilized world, a group of 20 people banded together raising chickens who also happen to be producing petroleum. While producing this petroleum, this group find themselves forced to live barricaded from a savage group of motorists that surround their fort-like community and the petroleum producing facility it contains. Max makes a deal to help them find a way out of this home that has become a prison, but his life is on the line if he can't complete his mission.
The casting is perfect, as is the story, dialogue, plot, script, wardrobe, and cinematography. Even after twenty years, it is still one of the best action movies you'll find out there.
On a side note, after its release, it won the Los Angeles Film Critics Association Awards for best foreign film. It was also France's Avoriaz Fantastic Film Festival winner for 1982, and in 1982, the Australian Film Institute awarded it for Best Direction, Best Achievement in Sound, Best Achievement in Production Design, Best Achievement in Editing, and Best Achievement in Costume Design. It was, of course, also the movie that made Gibson an international star.
