what can i say WOW just how i remember them i used to watch these films as a kid with my dad late at night arr memories. I did have them on VHS tape but quality was rubbish so i thought id upgrade SO AFTER READING REVIEWS ON HERE (thanks Reviews) I FINALLY BROUGHT THIS set of films and i have had many a mad max night. really good buy at this price and amazon were spot on in everything paid the extra cost for post to get them faster.so any one who like me is the other side of 35 and liked these films originally GET THEM WELL WORTH IT GREAT DEAL GREAT FILMS. there is talk on here about these films that they aren't the originals or the accents aren't right but to be fair when the wife and kids have gone to bed grab yourself a few beers and some munchies and watch these films PURE BLISS
I cannot do justice to other reviewers.So i will not try.All 3 have a nice picture quality mm2 seems uncut slightly longer boomerang and crossbow bolt in the leg.Mm1 complete as the video the attack and rape and trashing of car was almost completely excised.My only complaint is the later mm1 release on video in the nineties in widescreen was nearer 2.66.1 as was filmed in todd ao were this is 2.35.1.Mm3 the weakest of the three.The ausie soundtrack mm1 i found it hard to hear the dialogue but the engine noises were so loud i was turning the volume up and down and trying to find an happy medium.But for the price you cannot go to far wrong purchasing this item.also very little in the way of extras.
Do not buy this boxset, the films are basically stripped down, censored VHS transfers in terrible cheap packaging. They have no extras and are not worth £1. Warner Bros have released a Special Edition Region 1 version of Mad Max which is brilliant. Ironic that they haven't released it here considering it was the americans who overdubbed it in the first place! Mad Max 2 and 3 have yet to be released in special edition form anywhere in the world. Absolutely shocking stuff considering some of the rubbish that gets multiple releases. Vote with yer wallets.
The 'MAD MAX' Trilogy certainly contributed in propelling 'Mel Gibson' to super-star status, playing the role of 'Max Rockatansky' The series set in the not too distant future. The opening scenes of the first in the trilogy 'Mad Max' sets the tone for the series with an explosive car-chase introducing 'Max' as an interceptor working for what little law remains in apocalyptic earth. Wall to wall action packed coupled with impressive stunts throughout. 'Mad Max' and 'Beyond the Thunderdome' making their debut on the Blu-ray format. The picture and sound quality has certainly benefited from the HD upgrade for this action-packed movie trilogy. This presented in a very collectable 'Petrol can packaging' Special features include...Communication by director 'George Miller' and Cinematographer 'Dean Semier' ** introduction by 'Leonard Martin' ='A must for ''Movie'' collections.
