Ep. 02-26: Mad Max (1979) & Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior (1981)

Episode 26 – Mad Max & Road Warrior

After Max (Mel Gibson) avenges the death of his wife and young son at the hands of the vicious gang leader, Toecutter (Hugh Keays-Byrne), he drives the post-apocalyptic highways of the Australian outback, fending off attacks from nomadic tribes in order to survive. Discovering an encampment led by the relatively peaceful Pappagallo (Mike Preston), Max becomes the group’s reluctant defender against the hulking Humungus (Kjell Nilsson) and his ruthless marauders, in exchange for gas and the promise of a potential paradise.

Welcome to the near future, where survival is slim and gas is gold. In the late seventies, George Miller introduced us to this iconic character and put Australia on the map as a contender in the cinematic world. Join us as we discuss the first 2 installments in this franchise, Mad Max (1979), the insanely cheap but glorious indie, and its follow-up, Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior (1981), a sequel that not only managed to pack seats but exceeded and enhanced the vision of its predecessor. Listen, as Johnny Has the Keys takes you to the dangerous desert roads of the apocalypse, where humanity has been abandoned, chaos rules, and your only hope may be that of a lone stranger in black.
