Just to correct a previous review...,
This review is from: Mad Max 2 - Road Warrior  [DVD]  (DVD)
A previous reviewer has claimed that this is missing around 10% of the footage found in the US release. This is incorrect. There is indeed a time difference between the Region 1 (US) and Region 2 (UK) DVDs of about 5 minutes but this is down to the conversion in video standards (I won't go in to details!)from NTSC (US) to PAL (UK). This generally results in a decreased runtime of around 7 ot 8%.
This version of Mad Max 2 is the full US theatrical version, which itself was slightly cut for a few seconds of violence, before reaching our shores. Aside from those precuts made in the US this film is untouched before theatrical release. Oddly the original Warner Brothers UK VHS release has these few seconds of violence remaining!
This stands as one of the best action movies ever, and the final chase sequence is staggering. This movie does indeed deserve a Special Edition with lots of extras and a decent picture (which is sadly lacking here).
