Screen idol and Academy Award-winning superstar Mel Gibson (Maverick, Lethal Weapon series) stars in this mythical futuristic tale from writer-director George Miller (The Witches of Eastwick). In this boxoffice winner and critical phenomenon, Mad Max joins forces with nuclear holocaust survivors to defend an oil refinery under siege from a ferocious, marauding horde that plunders the land for gasoline. The winner of five Australian Film Institute Awards, Newsweek calls this a sensational slam-bang end-of-the-world picture. The New York Times says it's an extravagant film fantasy...action packed...[and] extremely witty. One of the year's 10 best, raves Time Magazine. Followed by Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome in this enormously successful film series.
