The political argument that ensues is pretty dull, but the battle scenes are the loudest and most convincing in years: Gibson has learned from Kurosawa in lending a clarifying thrust to what is, essentially, chaos.
Even though I have the theatrical release version of the movie, I wanted more insight into how it was made and the bibical principles that some of the scenes were built on. This selection did not let me down. It is jammed packed with interviews and extras that really flesh out the movie experience. I highly recommend it for those who really loved the move - The Passion.
Mad Max is one of the greatest action films of all time! Set in a pre-apocalyptic, near future, it follows the life of Max Rockatansky (a.k.a. Mad Max), as he is transformed into one of cinemas quintessential antiheroes. The action sequences are amazing and never disappoint. The ending is very satisfying and ice cold. The supporting cast is also great. Who can't get into a movie filled with characters with names such as Toecutter, Bubba Zanetti, Nightrider, Jim \"Goose\", and a burly police captain called Fifi? Mad Max still packs a punch even though it is now 31 years old (as I write this)! Needless to say, I highly recommed this film!
