Synopsis

"A riveting classic." – The New York Times

Setting Mel Gibson on a sure path to superstardom, this highly acclaimed "crazy collide-o-scope" (Newsweek) of highway mayhem "cinematically defined the postapocalyptic landscape" (TV Guide). Featuring eye-popping stunts that are "electrifying and very convincing" (Variety) and "an authentically nihilistic spirit" (The Village Voice), this unforgettable actioner from director George Miller (The Road Warrior, Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome and Mad Max: Fury Road) is "pure cinematic poetry" (Time).

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 (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! Also starring Joanne Samuel, Hugh Keays-Byrne (Mad Max: Fury Road) and Steve Bisley (The Great Gatsby, Red Hill), this rugged racecar of a film runs on "comic book volatility… exhilarating rowdiness and visual intensity" (The New York Times)!

Why We Love It

“A cult classic for all generations, Mad Max remains an eye gazing, intense action extravaganza 36 years after its release! And with the highly anticipated Mad Max: Fury Road about to be unleashed into theaters (yours truly couldn’t be more excited), now marks a perfect opportunity to rediscover the original that started it all, thanks to this terrific new Blu-ray release from Shout Factory!” DVD Movie Central

Mad Max was just a game changer in post-apocalyptic cinema… Now the great car chase film gets the lavish Scream Factory Blu-ray treatment.”Joe Corey, Inside Pulse

Mad Max is such a must own” Wicked Channel

“This is the best presentation of Mad Max that has been seen. Existing fans of the series will love the treatment it has received and enjoy noticing small details they have never seen before. It’s also going to be fun for those who only have seen the American dub version to see the original Australian dialog.” – Fanbolt
