Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior


Dir. George Miller. 1981, 94 mins. 35mm. With Mel Gibson, Bruce Spence, Michael Preston. The rare sequel to equal (if not surpass) its predecessor, The Road Warrior pushes the delirious action spectacle of the original into overdrive. It follows the title character, now a loner adrift in an anarchic, post-apocalyptic wasteland, as he joins up with a band of refugees who must fight to protect their precious gasoline from hordes of marauding bikers. It all builds to a breathtaking climax—a white-knuckle, tour-de-force extended chase sequence involving an eighteen-wheel oil tanker—that achieves the exhilarating rush of pure cinema.
