That crazy max Movies are so influential that they are sometimes compared to other movies. For example when I wrote my article about why Water world is awesome, my first reason was because it’s pretty much fair crazy max with boats. And when I think of some of my favorite animes from the 80’s and 90’s, the first thing that comes to mind is Fist of the North Starwhich, you guessed it, is modeled after the world of crazy max.
In many ways it is crazy max Movies represent the quintessential post-apocalyptic hellscape. It’s desolate, it’s populated by Nutzoids, and it’s frightening. But at the same time it’s also explosive and metal as hell. Beach buggies with screaming lunatics hanging from the sides, no-nonsense leather daddies, a guy with a flame guitar. I mean gosh! crazy max may be the end of the world, but that doesn’t mean it has to be grumpy The street.
In fact, when we talk about the best action movies, it’s these crazy max Series definitely has at least a few that I would consider the greatest of all time. But of the four films, which ones stand high and which ones are… mediocre? Well, you’re about to find out.
4. Mad Max: Beyond Thunderdome (1985)
With Mel Gibson and Tina Turner, Mad Max beyond Thunderdome is not a bad movie in the least. In fact, like Sylvester Stallone, I have a soft spot for it Judge Dredd Movie. But that’s it. I like Beyond Thunderdome in a “it’s not as good as the others, but it’s still fun” sort of. When I ranked them rambo Movies that somehow made me feel the same way Rambo: First Blood Part IIand Rambo III because they’re damn fun and I enjoy them, sure. But the original First blood and the 2008 rambo are just way better at a basic level of storytelling. And that’s how I feel about the other one too crazy max movies compared to Beyond Thunderdome.
In this third part of George Miller, Max fights in a gladiator arena (A Thunderdome, if you will) for Tina Turner’s corrupt ruling figure Aunt Entity. But realizing that he has been tricked into fighting, he refuses to continue fighting and is banished by her. Eventually he meets some kids who see him as some kind of savior and more great action follows, like a really cool train sequence.
As I mentioned before, it’s not a bad movie by any means, but it just feels… less for some reason. And dumber. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but when you rank them all crazy max movies, Beyond Thunderdome always ends up at the bottom for me.
3. Mad Max (1979)
This first film stars Mel Gibson, Hugh Keays-Byrne and Joanne Samuel crazy max The series is definitely the darkest and least entertaining in the franchise. Still, all the madness the series is known for is still somewhat present, cementing Max as an anti-hero for the ages.
In this origin story, Max is a cop dealing with a vicious biker gang that rules the streets. Max tries to uphold the law as best he can, but all bets are off when something terrible happens to his family. Then Max goes insane and becomes just as brutal as his enemies.
This first film in the series is great, and its Australian setting is dark and harrowing through and through. Also, Toecutter (who is the same actor who would eventually play Immortan Joe) is a fantastic sadist of a villain. As much as I like the first film, there are two much better films in the crazy max Series that really improved that concept by about a million.
2. Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior (1981)
In this all-superior sequel directed by George Miller (all directed by him) and starring Mel Gibson and Kjell Nilsson as Lord Humungus, Max is a broken man struggling to survive and the world’s most precious commodity steals – gasoline – whenever he can. But eventually he fights to defend a community against a ravenous band of lunatics led by the super imposing Humungus. It really doesn’t get much better.
I’m serious. You already know what will be number one now but I’ve been seriously considering putting this at the top as it never gets old. So many other films and stories have drawn from it The Street Warriorthat you would think it would feel old, but no. This sequel is so action-packed and badass, despite all the imitators, it still feels like the freshest version of itself.
Mel Gibson has never been better in the role of a reluctant hero, and it doesn’t feel as ridiculous as in Beyond Thunderdome. Plus, it moves at such a fast pace that it gives you little time to breathe, and I mean that in the very best of ways. On another day I might have called that the best crazy max film, but today I’m putting it number two. So you know what that means…
1. Mad Max: Fury Road (2015)
was Mad Max: Fury Road It’s worth waiting for the decade-long sequel Beyond Thunderdome? Oh damn yes. Also starring Tom Hardy as the titular Max, as well as Charlize Theron as the warrior, Emperor Furiosa and Hugh Keays-Byrne as the series’ best villain, Immortan Joe. rage street is really Furiosa’s story as she tries to get Immortan Joe’s five wives to safety, allied with Max in the process. What follows is probably the greatest car chase movie ever made.
Nominated for best damn movie, Mad Max: Fury Road is more of a remake than a sequel and I think that works best as it feels similar to the older films but also totally original. Tom Hardy makes a fantastic Max, but what makes rage street The world itself shines the most, for it has never been more alive. While the other three films looked rather bleak, rage street bursts with color and energy (the black and white version, Black and Chromeeven feels like a whole different movie without all those colors).
But the film is just plain fun. I’m having a hard time deciding which one to choose, but I only just give in rage street one leg over The Street Warrior. Ask me tomorrow, maybe I’ll change my mind. Oh, and I can’t wait crazy max Spinoff, Furiosa. It can’t be here soon enough!
