A rare case where the sequel is better than the original.
No other film series has as big a leap in quality from original to sequel as this one. Mad Max was a thoroughly disappointing film, one I cannot say I liked, and Mad Max 2 was a thoroughly enjoyable film. It retains many of the flaws of the original, but it more than makes up for them.
I know I'm in the minority here, but I prefer Mad Max. I think Miller gets more emotion out of the first film and does more with less. The Road Warrior is fun though - a good action movie for sure.
I'm with that minority. The original Mad Max is an utterly brilliant film. A much darker, rawer, gritty and yes emotional film then the sequel. One of my all time favourite films. Having said that "The road warrior' is not far behind & if its a pure action fest your after, then look no further.
The sequel wins out
Both great, but for me the original is better.
Two awesome Aussie movies. I'll give the edge to Mad Max 2. It's proper name.
Lemme even it up. I like Mad Max's tone more (less cheese), but there's no denying that the action was better in the sequel. It was fantastic. Can't wait to see Hardy in Fury Road.
Mad Max 2 edges it slightly, I can't help but enjoy the more action orientated film.
