The Road Warrior

The Road Warrior roars into the New Bev in glorious 35mm! Picking up several years after the original Mad Max ends, our nomadic hero roams the post-apocalyptic outback in search of food and fuel. But when he finds a refinery settlement hoarding an invaluable stockpile of gasoline, he fatefully agrees to help defend them against a vicious band of barbarian raiders. The Road Warrior is a pedal to the metal action masterpiece, expertly directed by George Miller, tightly edited and featuring some of the best vehicular stunt work ever lensed; its unforgettable attitude, costumes & design launching a generation of knockoffs. The film remains a jaw-dropping stunner and a rite of passage for all cinematic thrill-seekers.

“The special effects and stunts in this movie are spectacular; [The Road Warrior] goes on a short list with Bullitt, The French Connection, and the truck chase in Raiders of the Lost Ark as among the great chase films” – Roger Ebert

Mad Max: Fury Road

Filmmaker George Miller returns to the legendary franchise that made him a star with Mad Max: Fury Road, a stunning, hyper-charged & fuel-injected post-apocalyptic action masterpiece that will leave you breathless! On the run from a tyrannical leader with the despot’s wives in tow, Imperator Furiosa (Charlize Theron as the cinematic badass of the decade) must forge an alliance with wasteland drifter and former captive Mad Max (Tom Hardy taking over the iconic role), if any of them are going to make it out alive. Fury Road rockets out of the gate and never lets up, propelled by jaw-dropping, death-defying stuntwork and Oscar-winning editing, production design, costumes, makeup and sound.

“A kinetic, hallucinatory, boldly feminist chase flick that, with its vibrant color palette, harrowing stunt work and show-don’t-tell style of yarn-spinning, leaves every Marvel movie and every Fast & Furious in its irradiated dust.” – Chris Kilek, NPR
