Mad Max is an important part of Australian cinema and pop-culture history. However, the series is as equally important worldwide, and is arguably one of the most recognisable and referenced post-apocalyptic tales ever told. The titular hero, Max, was played by Mel Gibson whose Australian heritage came across as a gruff, stoic and hardened portrayal of a man who'd lost everything, but still had a sense of hope.

Avalanche Studios has, however, chosen to have Max voiced by a "generic" American voice-actor so that Max can appeal to a "generic" crowd. This negates the hero's place in popular-culture and is a bit of an affront to Australians who hold the character and movies so dear (and also to global purists).

We're not asking for Mel Gibson, but finding an Australian voice-actor who can channel the Max of the popular films would just be the right -- and reverent -- thing to do.

Please Avalanche, have a heart and give us the Max we all love.
