Mad Max 2
1981
*****
Director: George Miller
Cast: Mel Gibson, Vernon Wells, Bruce Spence, Mike Preston, Emil Minty

A fabulous survival story set in the future when everyone is desperate for fuel. Mel Gibson gives his finest performance as the embittered Max who refuses to take sides. The climax is the longest and the most spectacular car chase in film history. This is surely a case when the sequel beats the original (Mad Max). Followed by Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome.
