The Road Warrior is a relentless action opera – with movement, emotion, and music building and building to crashing crescendos of violence and catharsis, with little time for the niceties of plot (which would be a problem — if the film had much of a plot).

As a work of pure film craft, The Road Warrior is, indeed, the best in the series—a poetic action sonata of cars and leather that’s rich in beautifully composed wide shots that are designed to tickle the eye… But the film is disappointingly conventional in spirit. Unlike Mad Max, its kinkiness is superficial, and Miller is overly preoccupied with offering Max up as a mythic hero right out of Joseph Campbell, despite the scant evidence on display to support that assertion.

Perhaps too much emphasis has been placed, over the years, on the supposedly timeless and universal mythic aspect of Mad Max 2, with particular reference to Miller’s own favourite citation, Joseph Campbell’s The Hero With a Thousand Faces. A truer view would be that the enduring greatness and fascination of Mad Max 2derives from the fact that it is not pure but impure myth-making, performed at a dizzy height of cinematic inventiveness.
