What was briefly glimpsed at in 1979's Mad Max, and explored in the cult classic movie sequels that followed was the craziness that afflicted those that survived the fall of society and civilisation in George Millers vision of a post-apocalyptic future. In a world with no law, no order, no leadership everyone must fight for their survival against both the elements and those that scavenge off the fruits and labors of others. What Mad Max movies are at their core is the story of a man who fights to survive in a world between the crazy scavengers and the naive survivors struggling to retain the ways of the old world. Max is a relunctant hero, a true anti-hero that belongs to neither the world of the scavengers nor the survivors; a lone, haunted sole wandering the wastelands of the old world without purpose.
But deep down, beneath the cold blooded exterior and the weather worn leather Max is an honest, compassionate man who will inevitably forego his selfish, lonely survival to help those in need and those being hunted and hounded by the crazy scavengers that now plague the world, the same scavengers that stole away from him his wife and son, who made him Mad Max.
