In a post-apocalyptic future where gasoline is scarce, director George Miller sure uses a lot of it in this extended chase sequence that fills the last quarter of the film. A band of punk-biker pirates pursues a tribal convoy, led by Mel Gibson’s Mad Max, that’s escorting a precious fuel tanker to safety. Fighters clad in studded leather spar atop moving cars, motorcycles, and trucks, picking each other off with shotguns and crossbows. The second of the three Mad Max movies, Road Warrior is also the most memorable, thanks to its relentless drive.
