MAD MAX is the original 1979 film that started the series of action drama films. In the near future, a cop embarks on a mission of vengeance against a lawless biker gang and its sadistic leader.
There is strong threat, including: a couple trapped in a car being attacked by a gang armed with axes and sledgehammers; a shotgun being pushed into a man's mouth; a woman being stalked through a forest; a woman running along a road, with a child in her arms, being chased by a motorcycle gang. A man trapped in an overturned car is also threatened with it being set on fire.
There is strong violence, including a man being shot in the leg and having his arm run over, and a man on a motorcycle being hit by a truck; bloody injury results. There is also a scene that shows the aftermath of a road accident in which the driver hangs out of a window with blood on his head and face.
There is one use of strong language ('f**k') and brief nudity.
