Theater Thursday

It's Thursday and that can only mean one thing... it's Theater Thursday! This week's featured movie is, Mad Max
Made in 1979, Mad Max stars yet to be famous, Mel Gibson as an Australian Main Force Patrol Officer. In a dystopic Australia with Earth's oil supplies exhausted, the justice system has began to break down because of the energy sources. It falls upon the MFP to guard the roads and keep people safe. When a motorcycle gang begins to wreak havoc on a town and everyone that they come into contact with Max becomes involved. It really gets personal for him when the gang starts to terrorize him and his wife Jessie and their child. 

Max takes them away to a remote farm in the outback to try and escape the gangs reach. When the gang finds them and tries to kill them, Max snaps and becomes a shell of his former self. He swears revenge and begins to methodically hunt down each member of the motorcycle gang to kill them. He can't rest until they are all killed. It consumes him and it becomes his mission. 

I had never seen this movie until now. I wouldn't say it was the greatest but it was definitely interesting. Mel Gibson is very young in this film and he's rocking his actual accent. Give this one a try, you might enjoy it!
