Mel Gibson hits the road running with this action-packed post-apocalyptic over-hyphenated film. The film isn’t the deepest thing ever, people are fighting over the last of the oil and gas to power their motorcycles, buses, killing machines…etc. Mel Gibson is a broken man who wanders alone, dishing out punishment to bandits everywhere. This sequel to Mad Max is a lot better than the first film but it still didn’t blow me away. I liked it enough and I’m thankful it came out because a lot of movies and video games have taken what this movie did and ran with it. Mel has a good performance and as with the other Mad Max film, I really loved all the strange bad guys and hoodlums that speed up and down those dusty roads. A fine action flick but don’t be looking for much of a deep story as you’ll find as much of a story as there is gas left in the world of Mad Max.
