Sequel to Mad Max finds Max, now a loner, reluctantly helping a tiny oil-producing community defend itself against a band of depraved crazies thirsty for precious fuel. Less original script-wise, but trendsetting visual design and some of the most unbelievable car stunts ever filmed make this equal to, if not better than, the first one. This film was hailed as an international success, the same year as the film ‘Gallipoli’, and Gibson was becoming hot property. AJP
A former police officer is now a lone wanderer, traveling through a devastated Australia after a nuclear war looking for now-priceless petrol. He lives to survive and is none too pleased when he finds himself the only hope of a small group of honest people running a remote oil refinery. He must protect them from the bike gang that is terrorizing them whilst transporting their entire fuel supply to safety.
