    At the end there she’s asks him ‘what’s your name?’, it’s a pity it didn’t play more cos he might have said ‘It’s not MATT Hardy anyway’.

    It looks a bit too apocalypsey to be a prequel to the original – things were only beginning to collapse, there was still a semi-functional police system, non-customised cars etc.

      Yeah, it looks more like it is in between the original and the sequal, Mad Max: The Road Warrior.

      Looks worryingly flashy also.

      I was just thinking that, it would slot right in after the Max leaves the convoy and the bus with the fuel loaded up split…

    I am disappointed that it wasn’t made in Australia. I agree with those above, the imagery is far more Thunderdome than the low budget original movie.

    I will be going to see it.

    This is not a prequel the first movie is set during the downfall of society this is full on apocalypse and Max doesn’t go all cold hearted road warrior till his family are murdered more likely this is set between Mad Max 2 and thunder dome.
