Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior
 No Multimedia

Human Rating: 4 / 5 Alien Rating: Government Cover Up

I'm just here for the gasoline...

This is a rarity: a sequel that is actually better than its predecessor, in this case Mad Max (1979). With a much bigger budget, more spectacular stunts than the first movie, this is undoubtedly the best movie in the series.

In it, a dog food eating Mel Gibson helps a settlement against a gang of marauding bikers - all in his own self-interest, of course. The final chase, with a huge oil truck pursued by fellow post-apocalyptarians on all kinds of outlandish vehicles, is thrilling and exciting to watch. It definitely ranks as one of the most exciting car chases of all movie history along with classics such as The French Connection.

Kevin Costner (not to mention countless others) tried to do something similar (albeit on water) in Waterworld (1995) a decade or so later, but simply couldn't match it because you can't touch what is by now definitely a cult classic. If you haven't seen The Road Warrior yet jump on your bike right now and head for your nearest video shop to rent it!
