Mad Max

Mad Max

(1979)

The maximum force of the future.

The classic, Australian post-apocalyptic action thriller with Mel Gibson as Max Rockatansky, a policeman in the near future. Max has seen too many innocents and fellow officers murdered by the bomb's savage offspring - bestial marauding bikers for whom killing, rape, and looting is a way of life. When a gang murders his family, Max straps on his helmet and climbs into a souped-up V8 racing machine to seek his bloody revenge.

  • Simple, but effective. Full Review

  • Stunts themselves would be nothing without a filmmaker behind the camera and George Miller, a doctor and film buff making his first feature, shows he knows what cinema is all about. Full Review

  • The tone sometimes wavers into self-parody, and there are occasional crude patches, but overall this edge-of-seat revenge movie marks the most exciting debut from an Australian director since Peter Weir. Full Review
