Mad Max
D: George Miller (1979) 93m


This Australian film had already gained a small cult following by the time its sequel, 'The Road Warrior', became a worldwide hit in 1981. In post-apocalyptic Australia, a cop quits the force and takes revenge on the motorcycle gang who killed his family. Civilisation survives (sort of) amidst action galore. Previously held the Guinness world record for most profitable film.
