Academy Award-winner Mel Gibson ("Maverick", the "Lethal Weapon" series) stars in this mythical, futuristic tale from writer/director George Miller ("Happy Feet", "The Witches of Eastwick"). In this box office winner and critical phenomenon, Mad Max joins forces with nuclear holocaust survivors to defend a still-working oil refinery under siege by a ferocious, marauding horde that plunders the wasteland for gasoline and whatever other supplies it can scrounge up. 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.
