In the ravaged near future, a savage motorcycle gang rules the road. Terrorizing innocent civilians while tearing up the streets, the ruthless gang laughs in the face of a police force hell-bent on stopping them. But they underestimate one officer: Max Rockatansky (Gibson). And when the bikers brutalize Max's best friend and family, they send him into a mad frenzy that leaves him with only one thing left in the world to live for—revenge!Vestron - 1988
In this desolate wasteland, all that remains is the highways of the Australian outback, the scene of bizarre death chases between vicious rebel bikers and the police who guard what is left of civilization. Max is a gung-ho young cop, the best of his squad. But when Max's best friend on the force is killed, Max hangs up his guns, taking his wife and young child across the country on a long-needed vacation. But the renegade gang isn't through with Max just yet...
The action becomes explosive and MAD MAX goes on his rampage of revenge, taking over the last of the powerful police cars and tearing up the highways in a supercharged last-ditch pursuit.

The film that started it all
Mel Gibson sizzles in this cult classic that made him an international superstar. It is sometime in the near future. The interstate highways have become white-line nightmares, the stage for a strange death game between nomad bikers and a handful of cops in supercharged cars with an abundance of weaponry. Weary of the carnage, top cop Max (Gibson) resigns from the force to travel cross-country with his wife and child. But just as the dark memories of the past are erased, a chance meeting with a renegade band of cyclists starts Max on a path of explosive vengeance. A brilliant mix of action and emotion, "Mad Max" brings a hazy vision of an apocalyptic world into stark, startling focus.Vestron - 1983
