About The Movies

Mad Max (Rated R)

Post-apocalyptic action thriller from director George Miller starring Mel Gibson as Max Rockatansky, a policeman in the near future who is tired of his job. Since the apocalypse, the lengthy, desolate stretches of highway in the Australian outback have become bloodstained battlegrounds. Max has seen too many innocents and fellow officers murdered by the bomb's savage offspring, bestial marauding bikers. He just wants to retire and spend time with his wife and son but lets his boss talk him into taking a peaceful vacation and he starts to reconsider.

Then his world is shattered as a gang led by the evil Toecutter murders his family in retaliation for the death of one of its members. Dead inside, Max straps on his helmet and climbs into a souped-up V8 racing machine to seek his bloody revenge. Despite an obviously low budget and a plot reminiscent of many spaghetti Westerns, Mad Max is tremendously exciting, thanks to some of the most spectacular road stunts ever put on film. 

Mad Max 2 (Rated MA 15+)

This sci-fi action film is perhaps even more intense and exciting than its predecessor. Several years after the deaths of his wife and child, Max (Mel Gibson) has become an alienated nomad, wandering an Australian outback that has fallen into tribal warfare conducted from scattered armed camps. After a road battle with psychotic villain Wez, Max meets up with the odd Gyro Captain, who takes him to the camp of a sympathetic group led by Pappagallo. 

As Pappagallo's people are camped at a refinery, Max plans to take their oil - more precious than gold in this world - but eventually joins them to fight a band of marauders led by the evil Humungus. Heart-pounding chase scenes, savage and kinetic, Mad Max 2 is a must-see for action buffs.
