Mad Max and Road Warrior
Please complete each of the following tasks:
- Identify one review of Mad Max and one review of Mad Max 2: Road Warrior (find them however you like. Just search the Internet for them, but try to find the highest quality ones you can find. This means that they should come from a source that you have heard of before—the New York Times, Time magazine, etc.). Provide an MLA style works cited entry for each one of them (go to citationmachine.net if you need help with this) and summarize each review.
- Regardless of what the critics thought about Mad Max, the film had enough popular appeal and commercial success to spawn a sequel. What elements of that first film do you think caused this success and enduring interest?
- How are the two films different?
- Optional: Mad Max left its stamp on almost every post-apocalyptic film that followed it. Which elements of this film have you noticed in whatever post-apocalyptic movies you have seen on your own.
