Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior Movie Summary

In a desolate world, far from civilized men and uppity Jews, roams an angry, bitter man destined to dole out cute pet names to female police officers, and bleed millions of dollars to gold-digging ex-wives. Even though we don’t need another hero, Mel Gibson finds himself as one, in a crusade against roving gangs of homosexual hoodlums in the Australian Outback. Wearing little more than ass-less chaps, these thugs plug just about anything for a full tank of gas, but our boy Mel knows how to make them put a cork in it, and this is his story.

The Road Warrior begins in an apocalyptic wasteland in the distant future following a global war that has nearly wiped out civilization and everyone’s notion of civility. The world’s supplies of gasoline have been exhausted to the point that men, and pretty much only men, resort to violence and death to keep their vehicles running. Mankind has abandoned law and order in favor of the sort of chaos that is more commonly seen on a Los Angeles freeway on a Friday before a three day weekend.

Max Rockatansky is a former police officer who lost his wife and child to one of those marauding hordes in the first Mad Max film. He now wanders the desolation of the depopulated desert in a scarred and supercharged black V-8 Pursuit Special; his only friend — a Blue Heeler — riding shotgun. As the film opens, Max, his dog, and that sweet ride of his are being pursued by a “Right Said Fred” impersonator named Wez, and his “girlfriends” who all have darker five o’clock shadow than Jon Hamm at midnight. Wez is a Mohawk maniac who has a penchant for platinum-blonde twinks, long, hard arrows, and male penetration with any utensil.
