Captain Picard and his crew pursue the Borg back in time to stop them from preventing Earth's first contact with an alien species. They also make sure that Zefram Cochrane makes his famous maiden flight at warp speed.
5 years after Pitch Black, the wanted criminal Riddick arrives on a planet called Helion Prime, and finds himself up against an invading empire called the Necromongers, an army that plans to convert or kill all humans in the universe.
A vision of an apocalyptic future set in the wastelands of Australia. Total social decay is just around the corner in this spectacular cheap budget gang orientated road movie, where the cops do their best to lay down the law and the outlaw gangs try their hardest to defy the system. Leather clad Max Rockatansky husband, father and cop turns judge, juror and executioner after his best friend, wife and baby are killed. Here we see the final days of normality of a man who had everything to live for, and his slip into the abyss of madness. Mad Max is the antihero on the road to vengeance and oblivion. Written by
The car that Max drives (a black "Pursuit Special"; the phrase "last of the V8 interceptors" was not used until Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior (1981)) is a production car, the Ford "XB Falcon Coupe", sold in Australia from December 1973 until August 1976. The car in the film had a standard 351 cubic inch (5.75 litre) V8 motor. See more »
When Max takes the black interceptor to hunt down the Toecutter and his gang, he first comes up behind them on a road with a dashed white lines in the center and the road is lined with trees on both sides. This continues for as far as the viewer's eyes can see. When he spins up the supercharger in the next scene to run down the bikers, the road has changed to one with no lines in the middle, is narrower, and has open fields on each side. See more »
Set in a near future, Max, a high-way patrol officer, tries to stop a violent motorcycle gang.
This is a simple plot, but it is so well done and well filmed that this movie is a real classic action film.
I like Mad Max (1979) better than Mad Max 2 (1981). Most people seem to think that the second one is even better, but I can't agree on this because of several things:
First of all, this first Max movie has got a very important question, and that is that the violence of today are going to be worse tomorrow. The film dares to view violence even more than most movies do today, and I think this is a good thing, that helps to make this film trustworthy.
The acting is better in Mad Max than in the sequels, and the feeling of a near, almost broken down society with a small police force is more interesting than the post-nuclear situation that the second and third film tries to show us.
The car crashes and the pursuit in the openings of Mad Max are truly incredible. Never before had such nice work been put on celluloid.
Overall Mad Max is a true classic! Before this movie, science-fiction/action films weren't as good.
If You haven't seen it, try to get hold of the non-dubbed version.
