Watching George Miller's directorial breakthrough again confirms one thing among many others: that this is a filmmaker with not only an excellent spatial sense but also a nice appreciation of landscapes.

This should have been as exciting a cinematic decut for the watching film world as Spielberg's or Tarantino's - whether they actually did herald Miller's arrival in the way he deserved I am too young to tell.

But what a great movie. A Fantastic marriage of cop flick and low-budget exploitationer, Miller's movie is to this genre (whatever the hell that is) what The Texas Chain Saw Massacre is to American horror.

Taking Einstein's assertion that World War IV would be fought with bows and arrows as his cue, Miller sets his movie in (we assume) a future Australia inhabited by gangs

of barbaric bikers who wage high-speed war on the country roads.

When one of their clan, the Knightrider, is killed in a high-speed prison break, his peers, led by the psychotic Toecutter, vow revenge on Max Kotanski, the one they hold responsible.

What sets Mad Max Apart from similar films is its many pleasing quirks: the bikers - like the even more primitive barbarians in part 2 - are a shrewd mix of pre-civilisation warrior and punkish, androgynous psycho.

A triple bill of the films that made Mel Gibson famous. 'Mad Max' follows the revenge spree of a former cop in the post-apocalyptic future after his wife and child are murdered by a gang of vicious motorbike thugs. The sequel, 'Mad Max 2', aka 'The Road Warrior', features loner Max helping a small oil-producing community defend itself against a band of crazed thugs. Finally, in the bigger budget 'Mad Max - Beyond Thunderdome', Max comes up against a barbaric society led by a warrior queen (Tina Turner).

What a joke that original US DVD release of Mad Max was, American english only and poor picture quality.
I've just recieved this recently released UK version and I'm very happy. You can select the original Australian sound track and the Picture and sound quality is very good ( I zoomed the picture 2x with my Toshiba DVD Player and the Picture Quality still stayed very good ). The Picture format on this DVD is Widescreen 2.35:1.
This UK release of Mad Max on DVD is worth buying...

I used to be able to quote this film line for line. I AM THE KNIGHTRIDER, I'm a fuel injected suicide machine, ask the toecutter he knows lol. What's not to love about this film? It's just worth mentioning that this one does have little in common with it's three sequels, in case you've just discovered the latest instalment, as this one has an almost contemporary setting. But it's still a great origin story with Mel Gibson giving a star making turn. The car chases are still fantastic, but for me it has always been the dialogue. So see ya later Goose (taps the back of his neck to goad Jim Goose)
