In a self-destructing world, a vengeful Australian policeman sets out to stop a violent motorcycle gang.
Taking place in a dystopian Australia in the near future, Mad Max tells the story of a highway patrolman cruising the squalid back roads that have become the breeding ground of criminals foraging for gasoline and scraps.
When his wife and child meet a grisly end at the hands of a motorcycle gang, Max sets out across the barren wastelands in search of revenge.
Director: George Miller | Mad Max (1) was released in 1979 starring Mel Gibson followed by sequels Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior in 1981, Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome and Mad Max Fury Road.
All filming locations in the Mad Max films was shot in and around Melbourne. Many of the car chase scenes were filmed near the town of Little River near Geelong.
All the Mad Max cars were GT351 Ford Falcon's gt351.com.au.
You will not find a better website than the amazing Mad Max FAQ for information about Mad Max films.
Mad Max FAQ, is a fan site, created and maintained by Peter Barton.
I grew up in Melbourne through the 1970's, during the same era in which Mad Max was made, and in the beginning that was my association to the films.
Through the many years of running the site I've spoken with countless other fans, and it has always interested me that so many fans are brought to the films through so many different reasons - they really are stories and settings that have won a universal appeal.
The page started out originally as my own research into the first film, and wanting to learn more about the cars, and the filming locations. Growing up in Melbourne, much of the first film was shot on my own back door step, as it were. At this point with the site, clearly there is now so much more information on here due to the countless contributions from other fans, worldwide. There's obviously no way I could have ever compiled everything that is on here single handed, I just try to collect everything together as best I can, and put it together in a meaningful way. I also still do further research myself wherever possible, and am always adding material to the site, one way or another.
