About the Movie

Screen idol and Academy Award-winning superstar Mel Gibson ("Maverick," "Lethal Weapon" series) stars in this mythical futuristic tale from writer-director George Miller ("The Witches of Eastwick"). In this boxoffice winner and critical phenomenon, Mad Max joins forces with nuclear holocaust survivors to defend an oil refinery under siege from a ferocious, marauding horde that plunders the land for gasoline. The winner of five Australian Film Institute Awards, Newsweek calls this a "sensational slam-bang end-of-the-world picture." The New York Times says it's "an extravagant film fantasy...action packed...[and] extremely witty." "One of the year's 10 best," raves Time Magazine. Followed by "Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome" in this enormously successful film series.

I want to buy this movie. Please!!!!

This movie is a masterpiece not worthy of just a rental.

Great Classic

The movie is one of my all time favorites. I am tired of only having the option to rent. I would give itunes a lot more business if they would give the option to buy the movies

Where Mel Gibson was born!

An outstanding action film that kicked off the 80's. This sequel is what truly developed the Mad Max movies into a remarkable trilogy. This movie set a great standard for action movies for years to come.
