4.0 out of 5 stars Nothing added, but nothing taken away :D, 7 Jan. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Mad Max Trilogy: Mad Max / Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior / Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome [DVD] [2005] (DVD)
Mad Max: For some reason, someone felt it necessary to dub Mad Max from its original Australian English to...American English (why I will never know) but the good news is, though the 'English' soundtrack is the americanised version, the original Australian audio is also included. Australians do not speak with American accents, so please watch the Australian version.

Mad Max 2/ The Road Warrior: The standalone region 2 DVD only gives a 87 minute cut-down, censored version of the film. We're obviously not good enough in europe for the full film. However this boxset contains the full, 91 minute film in its entirity (its slightly shorter than 95 minutes due to PAL speedup, but its all there) Censorship ruins films, brilliant chase scenes

Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome: In my opinion this is the weakest of the three films, drawing several plot elements from The Road Warrior, but without the same full-throttle pace of its predecessor. It's still a good action film though, and its worth getting to complete the set.

So in all, here you get the full, uncensored versions of all three films, and annoying American dubbing is either non-existant or can be turned off. If you're not bothered about extras (there aren't any) but want the full set of Mad Max films, get this boxset.

Trust me when I tell you that we here in America who takes films seriously HATE when great films are 'dumbed down' or dubbed for an 'American' audience. We wish to hell that they would stop doing it.

nope soz to break it to you m8 but number 2 was butchered in the US to get an R rating but rather than cutting a copy they cut the master and every print since has come from the master including the unrated Australian and uncensored prints although they did find a small bit of footage and put it back,, but unless someone out there has a copy from the original uncut master we will never see it uncut

Bizarre, given that Mel Gibson was born in New York and has US nationality!
