Hold On While You Watch This Road Warrior Featurette On Stunts

I was lucky enough to watch The Road Warrior when it was originally released in 1982 and back then it was totally advertised as that with no mention of it being a sequel to George Miller’s 1979 classic Mad Max. Thanks to the Movie Channel airing Mad Max though as soon as The Road Warrior began my Father and I turned to each other in excitement with the realization we were about to see the continuing journey of that broken man known as Max.

With a new Mad Max film barreling our way this May it seemed the right time to share this behind the scenes look at the Stunt Work for the Road Warrior. This was originally made available on the Special Edition VHS for Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior and gives us a taste of just how dangerous it was for the stuntmen filming those thrilling action scenes.

A big thanks as always to IMP Awards for the image of the original Road Warrior theatrical poster.
