Mad Max (1979) 4K Blu-ray: Landmark dystopian classic

Kino Lorber is releasing director George Miller’s low budget but violent classic, Mad Max (1979) on a 4K Ultra HD plus Blu-ray edition. Stars Mel Gibson.

In a not-too-distant dystopian future, when man’s most precious resource — oil — has been depleted and the world plunged into war, famine and financial chaos, the last vestiges of the law in Australia attempt to restrain a vicious biker gang. Max (Mel Gibson), an officer with the Main Force Patrol, launches a personal vendetta against the gang when his wife (Joanne Samuel) and son are hunted down and murdered, leaving him with nothing but the instincts for survival and retribution. PRESENTED WITH DOLBY VISION/HDR.

Overnight, Mad Max went from being a U.S. cult hero to a mainstream figure, and Mel Gibson’s place in the firmament was secured.
