Directed by George Miller, 1979’s Mad Max is a dystopian Ozploitation film about Max Rockatansky (Mel Gibson), a Main Force Patrol officer fighting for peace on the roads of a lawless Australia.
After a major energy crisis cripples the world’s economy, law and order gives way to complete and total anarchy. The Outback is reduced to a desolate wasteland, roamed by motorcycle gangs who scavenge the lands for fuel and terrorize the few good people left. As a result, Main Force Patrol, an out-run police force, has been created to patrol the lands to uphold the remains of law and justice.
A berserk motorcycle gang member named Nightrider (Vincent Gil) kills a rookie officer and attempts to outrun the MFP in a stolen Pursuit Special. Enter Max, who engages the deranged sicko in a high-speed chase that ends in a fiery crash.
