Overview
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), Mad Max 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 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!

Easter Eggs
Insert the disc in your player and on the main menu, press the 'Up' arrow key on your remote control to highlight the 'Mad Max' logo at the top of the screen. Now press 'Enter' and you will get to a section about the cars of the movie, complete with pictures and descriptions.

Another Easter Egg is hidden right within the first one. While going through the cars, highlight the yellow interceptor and then press the 'Left' arrow key on your remote control. The headlights of the car will light up and give you access to a small blurb on the motorcycle that Goose was riding in the film.
