This movie was really dark. You go through the whole movie with the bad guys hurting and killing a lot of people. This stirred up so much hatred and anger which is always good in vengeance movies, but in the end, the vengeance was shallow and short-lived. The movie failed to deliver the reward at the end. I found this to be a painful and excruciating watch.

Mel Gibson's breakthrough film is set in a post apocalyptic outback ruled by ruthless road gangs. The budget limitations are obvious and the rest of the film fails to live up to the stunning opening chase sequence, but it does have power; particularly during the final showdown. The sequel The Road Warrior was a virtual and superior remake.

What makes Mad Max more than just pretty good post-apocalyptic movie is atmosphere. I dont know does anyone else feel it but it works on me.((maybe because i saw this one million times, i watch it since i was ten or so) I really could feel enviroment it was set in. And most of post-apocalyptic movies do not achieve that. Mad Max has many flaws. Sometimes characters become silly. Story is not polished enough. Even directing(except road parts) could be better. But Mad Max knows how to deal with it. Its fast, full of impressive surprises and of course has great road chases. Also i have to say Australia is great place to shoot post-apocalyptic movie.

Mel Gibson as Max Rockatansky, who avenges his friend and family. the Main Force Patrol (MFP) tries to uphold the law. Creative car chases and a wonderful score make this a good action flick inspired by its themes and style that made it an instant influential popular culture.shows the potential of a young Mel Gibson. This could have been way better with improved character development and screenplay. Nevertheless, Mad Max delivers the action and represents gangs, post-apocalyptic aura and revenge at its finest.

Pretty gritty. Australia goes nasty, real nasty. Bleak future exercise.

The first Mad Max film is an inventive and fun sci-fi thriller that benefits from its sparse dialogue and unique setting. Mel Gibson channels Clint Eastwood as a tight-lipped and mysterious hero and some of the villains are genuinely grotesque and the action sequences genuinely thrilling.

Classic action movie. They don't make car chases this exciting anymore. Max is a great hero.

Mad Max is a classic apocalypse movie and a classic sci-fi. If you call yourself a sci-fi fan you should really have seen this movie.

Rating of
2.5/4 

Mad Max is a low budget film from the late 70's about a man who seeks revenge on the people who murdered his wife and child. The problem i have is that the murder AND revenge don't happen until the last half hour of the 93 minute movie. so for the first hour, nothing happens. Mel Gibson is okay in the lead(for what it's worth), but the other other characters are terrible. The only other good thing about this movie is George Hills direction.

How can you not like this movie. It is cheesy, the biker gangs are borderline retarded and there is a lot of decent action. If you like this movie check out Death Race 2000, it is Mad Max on steroids and a funnier.
