Nothing added, but nothing taken away :D

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.
