Time has not been kind to this film. Swapping the American overdub for the original Australian soundtrack helped, even with the B movie dialogue, but Brian May's cringeworthy music totally swamped this film with its awfulness. The stunts remain the high point.

i bought this film some years ago and although i enjoyed it there is one
fault and its a major fault and i solved it only recently, and thats the original
soundtrack, for some barmy reason the entire film is dubbed and dubbed very
badly , it sounds more like the dialogue of a spag western. not a trace of australian
accent in the film which probably insulted the australians quite rightly too , legend
has it mel gibson was unknown in the usa at the time and this was the reason why
i got round this by going on the language menu and replacing the english dialogue
to original australian. i wish id known this earlier , this was the only reason i have given it a 4
star and not 5 , and thats for the dubbing a great shame

After seeing Mad Max: Fury Road in cinema I had to buy the originals and I'm not dissapointed at all, for some reason this version is automatically set to the terrible American dubbed version so make sure you select the Original Australian Dialouge in the language selection before watching the film or you will have to sit through 93 minutes of terribly dubbed campy accents and the main bad guy with a British voice haha typical Americans. Overall fantastic film and highly recommended.

High speed chases, open endless roads and nomad bikers in a post-apocalyptic vision of the future. Mel Gibson is Max, a police/highway patrolman who is determined to live his life clean and rid the roads of the scum that terrorise them. Events transpire that catapult him into another world, another outlook and new way of doing his job. A great film that looks as good as it sounds. Still modern and still plenty to admire. The film 'Saw' has a lot to thank this film for..!

I love this film, post apocolyptic(probably spelt wrong) movies is one of my favourite genres, and this fits the bill nicely. This movie shows a world where petrol is running out and society is breaking down. Bike gangs are running wild and the cops are powerless to stop them due to human rights laws whenever they do make an arrest.
I won`t reveal what happens but the ending is not full of amazing CGI graphics or vast amount of people but more centralised on characters.
I have to mention the music as well which makes the atmosphere so you really get caught up in the story, especially towards the end.
Just one dissapointment - there are no extras!!! Only reason for 4-stars, i do not consider different languages "extras" but essential for DVD`S. I usually don`t buy DVD`s without extras but my collection wouldent be complete without this film - a must buy.

Unfortunately, even though this version has mostly Australian Accents, it is still dubbed in parts which ruins an otherwise classic Australian movie. Turning it on to watch and the accents being different to my memory. Steve Bisley in particular had the scene in the café ruined by receiving an American Accent. If you remember the original, don't buy this version.

excellent film!! set in the future this is a brutal look at what could be and a very youthful freshfaced Mel Gibson stars in the lead as Max, a cop who's friends and family are brutally destroyed by a vicious feral biker gang!!! in my opinion the best revenge road movie ever made!! not as well directed as road warrior but perhaps slightly more brutal!!

First watched the cinema release during '79 and remembered the violence and the car chase scenes. Watched it again in 2010 and the violence and chase scenes are just as good. Recommended for "Old School Junkies". Car chases not as good as Steve Mc Queen but one has too start a career somewhere.
