Mad Max is a seminal sci-fi flick of the late seventies. I enjoyed Road Warrior and tolerated Thunderdome, but I had never before seen the movie that started the series. Tonight on SCI-FI, I got a chance to correct that.

What a terrible film! The worst dialog I’ve heard coupled with some powerful overacting. And could the movie move any slower? I doubt it. 45 minutes to set of one dimensional characters is unforgivable. Ick! I had such high hopes for this campy classic. Oh well. There’s always Blade Runner.
