Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior

Released 1981 Rating 15 in UK
Director George Miller Writer/s George Miller
Starring Mel Gibson, Bruce Spence,
Source of story Mad Max 1
Elevator Pitch In post nuclear war Australia Max comes across a fortified community in the desert that has an oil well and a primitive refinery, but it is being besieged by a group of armed itinerants and their wild vehicles. To allow the group to escape he agrees to provide a decoy by driving an armed road tanker off into the desert.
Content Lots of moderate violence, cars and wild vehicles dashing across the desert. Very little dialogue. Apparently Mel Gibson only had 16 lines.
A View It is, in many ways, a prototype for Fury Road. Max has a delightful dog, which was found in a dog pound and trained for its part, and afterwards was taken home by a camera man. It is watchable, but very noisy (the dog had to wear earplugs).
