Trivia

Australian showbiz legend Bert Newton was one of the first character actors cast by George Miller when the movie was to be filmed in Broken Hill, New South Wales, the original location for The Road Warrior (1981), a.k.a. The Road Warrior. Unfortunately, rainfall had completely changed the desert landscape, and years later the decision was made to move the production to Namibia. It was then, in mid 2012, that Bert Newton decided to drop out of the production, going on to appear as Franklin D. Roosevelt in the Australian stage revival of "Annie". See more »

Goofs

During the opening chase, when Joe's armada is first sent after Furiosa, in shots from the ground, the armada's large car carrier is clearly covered with around 6 cars' worth of parts, and many more War Boys. However, in the overhead shots of the same scene, the car carrier has nothing on it, with the metal of it's empty flatbeds reflecting the sun unobstructed. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Max Rockatansky: [Narrating] My name is Max. My world is fire and blood. Once, I was a cop. A road warrior searching for a righteous cause. As the world fell, each of us in our own way was broken. It was hard to know who was more crazy... me... or everyone else.

Crazy Credits

Near the end of the credits there is a memorial dedication that reads "Lance Allen Moore II, May 24, 1987 - March 10, 2015." Apparently Moore was a Mad Max fan killed in a motorcycle accident near Silverton, New South Wales, Australia, where Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior (1981) was filmed. See more »

An apocalyptic and thrilling story set in the furthest reaches of our planet with lots of action , pursuits and violence
13 November 2018 | by ma-cortesSee all my reviews

This remake to Road Warrior is the best classic epic Post-Apocalyptic Action Science Fiction film in the Mad Max Franchise . An apocalyptic story set in a harsh desert landscape where humanity is broken, and almost everyone is crazed fighting for the necessities of life , within this world exist two rebels on the run who just might be able to restore order. As a a drifter named Max (Tom Hardy) , and a woman named Imperator Furiosa (Charlize Theron) , both of whom rebel against a tyrannical ruler in search for her homeland with the aid of a group of female prisoners ( Zoë Kravitz ,Rosie Huntington-Whiteley ...) , and a psychotic worshiper called Nux (Nicholas Hoult). With the stark desert sands in front of them and marauders behind, only the maddest will prevail the storm. They fight brutal enemies thirsty for blood and to survive some battles to-the-death with lots of blood and gore, including throating-slit ,beheading, impaling and blow up . Only the mad survive. The future belongs to the mad .

This stirring movie in comic-strip style is packed with unbelievable car stunts, thrills , chills and noisy action . Top-notch movie and well set in a post-apocalyptic wasteland with a valient group who will have to fight against cruel cutthroats, a band of depraved crazies ; this thrilling picture packs kinetic action , chills, shocks and abundant violence . Spectacular stunt-work plenty of motorcycle races, cars witth breathtaking leaps and explosions . Excellent Tom Hardy as a revenger angel at one of his main roles, he embarks a groundbreaking escape against vicious murderous, he is a man of action and a man of few words, who seeks peace of mind following the loss of his wife and child in the aftermath of the chaos . And Charlize Theron gives a brave as well as sensitive acting as Furiosa, a woman of action and a warrior who believes her path to survival may be achieved if she can make it across the desert back to her childhood homeland .

Rumbling and moving musical score fitting to action by Junkie XL . Special and weird futuristic atmosphere created by cameraman John Seale who reflects splendidly the barren outdoors . According to this cameraman the cinematography would be as colorful as possible in order to differentiate the film from other post-apocalyptic movies, which typically have bleak de-saturated colors . Spectacular and impressive production design, the art direction is as beautiful as posible ; that's why the filmmaker Miller reasoned that people living in the post-apocalypse would try to find whatever scraps of beauty they could in their meager environment . Being shot in several locations such as Namib Desert, Namibia Cape Town Film Studios, Cape Town, South Africa , Sydney, New South Wales, Australia, Penrith, New South Wales, and Potts Hill, Sydney, New South Wales, Australia .The motion picture was stunningly directed by George Miller who subsequently announced he would sign on for ,three more Mad Max films as producer or director . Miller is author of the excellent post-apocalypse ¨Mad Max¨ trilogy along with the writer and producer Byron Kennedy. The first was ¨Mad Max¨ (1979) by George Miller with Gibson ,Joanne Samuel , Hugh Keays-Byrne ,Steve Bisley . A sequel titled ¨Mad Max 2, the Road warrior¨ with Gibson , Bruce Spence, Vernon Welles and Mike Preston . It's followed by ¨Mad Max beyond Thunderdome¨ with Tina Turner, George Ogilvie, Frank Thring and again Bruce Spence as sympathetic helicopter pilot . In addition, numerous imitations as the recent ¨Doomsday¨(2008, Neal Marshall), rip offs, and exploitations ,especially Italians products. Rating : Good, better than average, this is one of the most successful of the present decade . This remarkable action film will appeal to Science Fiction buffs. Rating : 8'5, Above average. Well worth watching.
