Grindhouse Double Bill: Mad Max & Mad Max 2





Rating: 18
Release Date: 12/04/1979
Director: George Miller

Grindhouse Dublin present back-to-back screenings of the 1979 and 1982 dusty outback classics. A vengeful Australian policeman sets out to avenge his partner, his wife and his son whom were murdered by a motorcycle gang in retaliation for the death of their leader. A vision of an apocalyptic future set in the wastelands of Australia. Total social decay is just around the corner in this spectacular cheap budget gang orientated road movie, where the cops do their best to lay down the law and the outlaw gangs try their hardest to defy the system. Here we see the final days of normality of a man who had everything to live for, and his slip into the abyss of madness.
