Mad Max — A cult classic that's a bit old now — 6*/10

  • Overall: You might not like it (anymore), but it was the beginning of something great.
  • Who is it for? Those old enough to remember seeing in the 80s and want a refresher or Mel Gibson fans. Others will find it terribly out of date. Stick with the latest incarnation.
  • Synopsis & information
  • Known actors: Mel Gibson. This is what put him on the map.
  • Setting: Near apocalypse with a smidge of civilization left.
  • Style: High octane asphalt mayhem.
  • Story: Rather simple, but it pulls you in.
  • Ending: Satisfying.
  • Dialogs: Dated.
  • Characters: Simple.
  • Acting: Pretty solid.
  • Visuals: Didn't age too well. It feels really old and it gets in the way of the enjoyment.
  • Special Effects: Limited on budget even for the time.
  • Camera Work: Excellent work on the chases.
