There are many elements of this movie to like. It is one of a few movies that I can think of that is not post-apocalyptic -but rather the apocalypse is currently happening or has just happened. It is a great little touch to the movie -as society clings to the old ways as everything slowly crumbles. The other thing that makes this movie so fun is the cast. Everyone is a character -to the evil gang of bad guys that strangely resemble a dance troupe (watch this again, you will see what I mean) to the cops that wonder if their side of the law still has their backs.
Ultimately this is a tale of terror and revenge.
Mad Max is an instantly classic character out to avenge his family.
The gang leader, Toe Cutter is a little less memorable, but fun and campy
in a mindless terror causing sort of way.
