Mad Max

Dir: George Miller
Starring: Mel Gibson
Year: 1979

I've got to tell ye, I did not like this film. Visually, it's beautiful and it had a few moments of greatness, with cat and mouse style chases, and a build up of tension that led to a cascade of action... but overall I found it too intense and disturbing.

Word up to Brian May for his crappy soundtrack.

By today's standards the car chases are still respectable but not spectacular. Mel G is pretty ace as the star man, although he is outshined somewhat in Narry B's opinion by the leader of the law enforcers, whose name I have forgotten.

Anywho, the whole things a bit too serious and so I didn't really enjoy it.
