It's a tough little piece, just a little grimy, full of ambiance (love the crumbling sign over "Hall of Justice") and attitude and occasionally sparked by an inspired flourish. Full Review

Rating: 3.5/5 -- While it may not be as slick as Miller's other films featuring Gibson's iconic anti-hero, Mad Max still remains a timeless classic and one of the more remarkable films of its (or any) time. Full Review

Product Description:

Rebel bikers combat the police in a bleak post-nuclear future where the highways are bloody battlegrounds. When a gang of motorcyclists brutally murder a policeman's family he becomes Mad Max, avenger of the highways. Sequel: THE ROAD WARRIOR.

Plot Synopsis:

Futuristic tale set in Australia, which has become a wasteland where vicious, fast-driving criminals cause death, destruction, and mayhem on the highways. The police do their best to maintain control, but their attempts prove futile. As a result, one cop named Max quits his job and goes on a vacation with his family. However they are terrorized by a gang of malicious speed-demons, who kill Max' wife and baby. Angry, Max rejoins the force, revs up his motorcycle -- and seeks bloody revenge against the fiends who murdered his family.

  • Released theatrically in Australia April 12, 1979.
