    Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior is a post-apocalyptic action film directed by George Miller that follows the burnt out and desolate shell of a man, Max Rockatansky (Academy Award-winning Mel Gibson), as he roams the desert in his supercharged V-8 Pursuit Special with his dog in the search for fuel and food. The government's attempts to restore order ultimately have left this wasteland in a state of chaos with biker gangs decimating settlers for their supplies and bodies. Max, with a tricky autogyro pilot, makes his way to a small working oil refinery consistently attacked by a group of brutal marauders led by a well spoken but gruesome Lord Humungus (Kjell Nilsson) and a vindictively violent Wez (Vernon Wells). Max sets out to protect the settlers while leading them to their freedom with the help of the Gyro captain and the “feral kid”, who wields a sharp-edged steel boomerang. A “Western” frontier series with the Man with No Name character style, the trilogy works in the realm of myth as stories told by survivors saved by the actions of the Road Warrior. Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior follows Mad Max and precedes Mad Max: Beyond Thunderdome in a cult classic trilogy whose post-apocalyptic future setting inspired other films and science fiction novels to copy its style in homage. Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior's worldwide box office success launched the career of its lead star, Mel Gibson, while also garnering five Australian Film Institute Awards.moreless
