I was so excited to watch this movie, 'cause I heard a lot of good comments about it, but I think that most of them was from people who watched a long time ago. I got so disappointed! It almost doesn't have a plot and the acting, oh my God!, I'm not even going to talk about it. Not that I hated, but I expected more.

I've got to agree with everyone else: the story blows. For the first hour, we get as much character development as we could've in half that time. It drags, and there's barely any action until the final act. And it's a great final act, but every act of a story relies on the others, and there's really just two, and the first one is a whole lot of nothing. But, hey, the action is directed really well, and it does get me excited for Road Warrior (tomorrow).

Had not seen the movie in 25 years and was a bit dissapointed. It is very low budget, their is no story and after the initial opening chase, nothing really exciting happens......

The Road Warrior is lightyears better. Still the Original set it all in motion and is an ok watch.

Genuinely found this to be boring and dragged on like hell.

I saw all the movies in 2 days. There's something special about the first one. The ambient, the characters you really care about, the shock, the lack of special effects. I just love it by itself.

Not my personal cup of tea. I will say that the atmosphere of the movie is well done and has a sort of grittiness that you'll surely remember for a while. I feel like it would have benefited a lot from a larger budget. It drags on a bit in a lot of places but the stunt work is decent, one viewing is enough for me.

Some of the stuntwork and camerawork are impressive and Mel Gibson shows early signs of greatness, but the average script and small budget hurts the movie. The movie is confusing or at least overly complicated at times like in the opening car chase where we jump back and forth between cars and villains while a weak-voiced car radio is humming the goings on in the background. The movie comes very close to becoming a great thriller at times, but ends up too often just feeling stressed. The impact of the ending is let down by countless imitators in modern times.

It's a bit silly. The action sequences are pretty decent, the "plot" is not.

I came, I saw it, I hated it. Nothing but grunts, blood, killing and car chases. That may be others' idea of a fabulous movie but not mine. I hate violence in movies. This one had almost everything I hate about a movie rolled into one. My opinion only...your mileage may vary.

Most people don't really understand Mad Max because they didn't grow up with the films. Of course it's going to look bad in today's standards, but it's still a classic to me.
