Mad Max

Mel Gibson stars as a cop in this wonderfully entertaining action-fest. In the near future, the world is being terrorized by mean road hogs. Gibson was going to withdrawal from chasing these guys, but when they kill his wife and kid, he goes on a crazed rampage! Excellently constructed action sequences alone make this keen film worthwhile. A must-see especially for action lovers. For some reason this Australian film's American distributor felt the voices needed to be dubbed to sound more American; that was an unreasonable and drastic move because the dubbing wasn't done very well. Followed by two sequels.
