This review is from: Mad Max 1 [Blu-Ray] Region B - Mel Gibson (Blu-ray)
Mad Max is a great film. Camp, violent, exciting and groundbreaking. There's little more I can say about the movie itself. As for the disc it's a mixed bunch. The master it was taken from hasn't been given the restorative treatment many old catalogue titles receive and there is a fair amount of natural damage visible in the form of occasional scratches and discolouration. That said Mad Max has never, ever looked this good, warts and all. It never ceases to amaze me how much more there is to see in terms of fine detail when an old favourite gets the blu-ray upgrade and even without enhancement the anamorphic widescreen image looks fanatastic. There is currently no UK version of this available so the Australian version is the only easy option. It's a shame that the George Miller commentary from the US DVD is not present and be warned if you're a fan of cheese as the terrible US dub soundtrack from its first american cinematic release, though listed on the setup menu, is NOT present.
Nevertheless this is a highly recommended purchase.
