MAD MAX (1980 USA)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.7|5.0 Starsìììì

Mad Max—classic, fresh, highly imaginative—stars a young Australian, Mel Gibson, and gives us a look into the movie making skills of George Miller. The acting? The story? The portrayal? Outstanding on all counts. Exceptionally interesting interpretation of the future, Australian style.

Storyline

A futuristic Australian highway patrolman goes rogue to tangle with a ruthless motorcycle gang.

Yes. Some things are just meant to happen. This film chose Mel Gibson for its main actor. Nothing else needs commentary.
