Australia in the not-so-distant future: a roving, marauding band of motorbikers led by the vicious Toecutter (Keays-Byrne) make the mistake of attacking the family of highway cop Max Rockatansky (Gibson, in the role that made him a star). A brilliantly edited, kinetically charged revenge saga and car chase classic, Mad Max will be shown here in its original Australian version.
