I meant to say PRE apocalyptic. Stupid phone. The movie still takes place in a very functioning society, albeita dwindling one

Either way Mad Max is always in an apocalyptic scenario

Well yeah I've known that for years. What I didn't expect was the first one to be set in relatively modern times. I expected the back drop to be more along the lines of fury road.

Well it had to start somewhere. To be fair the next three films are all different versions of the same story.

BTW Karl Urban should have been Mad Max after Mel got too old.
I still think replacing Mel was bullshit.

Mel kinda did it to himself. I love Tom Hardy. Thought he was fine. I'm a huge Urban fan. Would've loved to see him in it.

Karl Urban is one of the greats. He can lead, support or pad out a cast and I bet there aren't any actors out there who don't love working with the guy.

He's just top class in everything.

Watched Star Trek Beyond the other day and he's a damn good McCoy. Then seeing him in the Boys. The range.

Unhappy

Mad Max 2: Road Warrior-8/10

Opening montage/recap made it feel a little like a soft reboot. Read later WB dubbed the lines of the original, it didn't fare well, and decided to just call the second one "Road Warrior", having act as a stand alone. It works.

The world is officially post apocalyptic and gas is now it's only resource. A peaceful tribe has been able to pump and produce its own fuel, whileLord Humongous and his wild tribe have been actively trying to overthrow them and take over their compound. Max finds himself in that middle, trying to secure fuel himself.

Like the last one, the stunts for their time are extreme, loud, tangible and well done. Everything hits with heft and comes off as brutal and violent. The movie is mostly a chase scene and the editing is well done.

I find myself a huge fan of this series withone more to go.

Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome-6/10

Huge tonal and structural shift from the previous films. The beginning plays out fine. Max gets robbed of his pack of camels and supplies, stumbling into barter town, a civilization built to barter and trade goods and ran by auntie, played by Tina Turner. After realizing Tina is the bad guy, Max gets exiled and finds himself among a group of children waiting for a savior to take them to their utopia.

The film very much plays like more of an adventure film, with more whimsical gags, far less violence and slower pacing. Didn't notice but found out it as pg13. It was obvious looking back.

The movie itself is good. If it wasn't a Mad Max movie with 2 excellent predecessors, I would've liked it more. But for what was the final film in the original series it was a let down outside of the final and only case chase of the film.

The way they speak in Thunderdome is terrible.

Lmao I mean I kinda get it. I just didn't care for the tonal shift. It was jarring. Thank god they pivoted back to what works in Fury Road.
