Just a little love for the film that defined the Post Apoc genre. I mean there was Planet of the Apes and Logan’s Run before it–but y’know–this one rules!!
A vengeful Australian policeman sets out to avenge his partner, his wife and his son whom were murdered by a motorcycle gang in retaliation for the death of their leader. The first film in the series, Mad Max spawned sequels Mad Max 2 (aka The Road Warrior) in 1981 and Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome in 1985.
