Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior (1981)

In the post-apocalyptic Australian wasteland, a cynical drifter agrees to help a small, gasoline rich, community escape a band of bandits. (IMDb)

Loses the awkward dialogue and meandering plot of the original to focus on the action and the atmosphere: The car chases are elaborate and explosive, with a bevy of wild-looking vehicles and drivers to match, providing some flavour for the desolate desert landscape and together concocting a creative take on the post-apocalyptic world. Spence’s gawky gyro captain and Minty’s feral kid, meanwhile, provide a couple of other memorable characters that nicely compliment Gibson’s serious lone ranger.

6.8/10
