In a self-destructing world, a vengeful Australian policeman sets out to stop a violent motorcycle gang.
At the time of the film's release, the American audience had virtually no experience with, and therefore very great difficulty understanding, dialogue with an Australian accent. That's why Mel Gibson's voice was overdubbed by another actor - to prevent otherwise-certain commercial failure of Mad Max in the U.S., due to Americans' rejection of "unintelligible" characters.

Barry, MFP Garage Mechanic: She sucks nitro... with Phase 4 heads! 600 horsepower through the wheels! She's meanness set to music and the bitch is born to run!
Goose: He's in a coma, man!
Max's shoes change when he is running on the road to pick up Jessie. Earlier he was shoe-less and then wearing black shoes. In this scene he is seen wearing another pair.
German DVD features the original Australian dialogue.
