“Apocalypse...Pow! Exhilarating entertainment—and a textbook for sophisticated, popular moviemaking” (Richard Corliss, Time). Former cop Max (Gibson) is now a wandering mercenary scrounging for gasoline on the desolate roads of a world leveled by nuclear war. When he encounters a community of petrol-rich survivors, he offers to help them fight off a band of marauders led by the masked Humungus (Kjell Nilsson).
