The Road Warrior
In a post-nuclear war world, Gibson plays Max, a lone adventurer who drives the roads of outback Australia in an endless search for gasoline. His opponents include Lord Humungus, and they battle over a tiny band of civilized survivors and their horde of fuel.
Genre: Feature Film-Action/Adventure
Rating: R
Release Date: 3-FEB-2004
Media Type: DVD

A strong candidate for the designation of most thrilling action movie ever made (the turbo-charged exhilaration of its full-throttle highway chases has never been equaled), the second part of George Miller's post-apocalyptic trilogy is also a magnificently imagined movie myth. Like the Star Wars trilogy (by that other George) the Mad Max films draw their inspiration from the works of mythologist Joseph Campbell. In the 1979 original, Max (Mel Gibson) is a policeman, the last guardian of civilization and order in a devastated world reduced to chaos. But when a leather-clad gang of sadomasochistic speed demons mows down Max's family, his remaining connections to humanity are also permanently severed. After brutally exacting his revenge, Max wanders off into the wasteland alone, "a burned out shell of a man" who (to paraphrase The Searchers) is destined to wander forever between the winds. In The Road Warrior, Max rediscovers a sliver of his shattered humanity, and a spark of redemption, when he helps an embattled colony of pioneers fight off the savages who are after that most precious of all commodities: "guzzline." Max is transformed into a legendary hero, just as Mel Gibson was catapulted to international movie stardom. With its final stirring images, The Road Warrior transcends its genre (whatever that may be--science fiction? Western? action adventure?) and becomes something timeless. It's a great movie. --Jim Emerson

I was watching Road Warrior with subtitles and there's some interesting stuff in there that you can't really hear in the audio. I LOL'ed. In any case, I was relieved to find that I still liked the movie as much as when I was a teenager and thought it was the best movie ever. Action movies were better before the proliferation of CGI. Without that crutch, directors had to work a lot harder to get tension and suspense. One way Road Warrior does this is to use its actors to convey the conflict. There's a great scene where one of the bad guys (Wez) is meditating with his eyes closed. He hears an engine in the distance and his eyes open wide and he has this sort of psychotic, predatory look. He knows the good guys are trying to break the blockade, so he jumps up and croaks "Go, go, go!" as the bad guys jump into their cars to pursue. It's a simple signal to the viewer that exciting stuff is afoot, and works because the actor pulls it off. But mostly Road Warrior just has a gritty realism you don't see in a lot of modern action movies. I read somewhere that almost all of the scenes in the newer Star Wars movies were shot in front of a blue screen, and we all know how much those movies sucked. Without CGI, the makers of Road Warrior had to go out into a desert with a bunch of tricked out cars and film actual chase scenes. While the results aren't as fantastic as what can be achieved with CGI, they're infinitely more realistic. CGI can produce nearly perfect images, but that just isn't good enough. The human eye is amazing at detecting small imperfections and the resulting phoniness drains a scene of its potency.

Trying to get the blower to sit right and still look somewhat realistic.. Right now it's slightly raised above the manifold with a little styrene box I glued together. I'm not thrilled with the blower (I know it is not entirely accurate), but I have limited resources and don't feel like seeking out resin parts online. With a little effort it should work out nicely (at least viable as mechanically-possible in post-apocalyptic conditions). I'm going to strip the chrome and paint it aluminum/metal. The thick, plastic blower belt will be removed and I'll use masking tape (painted black). Remember, this is basically going to be Max's Interceptor (Mad Max/Road Warrior)- only a Mustang used as the base platform. I'm also adding the rear fuel tanks, booby-trap, and other interior similarities.

World War III has just ended and the world's remaining inhabitants are on a desperate, devastating, struggle to survive. Gasoline is in short supply and those remaining, turn on one another for the crude oil.
