Whenever you say "Mad Max" everybody immediately thinks of "Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior", but did you know there was a Mad Max 1?
It's true, though very few people have seen it. But I am one of them so I can impart some information to you. Basically it is about some bogans chasing each other around Queensland. Mad Max spends half the movie cooling out with his girlfriend, which is nice for him but hey, my man, the audience paid to see a car do a jump.
There's not really that much connection between the films apart from Mel Gibson and lots of driving. It is kind of on some bullshucks really, which is why nobody really thinks about it or mentions it.
But if you must have a taste, here is a bull crap scene from Mad Max 1.
