Mad Max

Mad Max, which stars a very young Mel Gibson, is often badly acted, badly written, and stylistically rough, but manages in spite of these obstacles to be a heck of a lot of fun. If you enjoy wanton destruction, there’s plenty of it to go around. If you like Mel Gibson, there’s plenty of him too. If you like adorable kids, there’s one of them too. This one will probably go over better with most guys than with most gals, but being a guy, I give it a solid thumbs up.
