Product Description

MacGyver - The Lost Treasure of Atlantis: MacGyver is called on by his former archaeology professor to help verify the legend of the lost city of Atlantis and to recover its treasure. MacGyver- Trail to Doomsday: While investigating the death of his best friend, MacGyver uncovers a shocking conspiracy to hold the world hostage to terrorism.

Just as Monty Python and the Holy Grail made it difficult to ever again watch anything involving Camelot with a straight face, so, too, has SNL's MacGruber made it near impossible to keep a straight face as Richard Dean Anderson MacGyvers himself out of a life-threatening predicament using common objects such as a lighter or an improbably accessible tennis racket. This long-awaited single disc contains the two 1994 made-for-TV MacGyver movies previously only available as part of the pricey Complete Series set. While it's fun to see the resourceful MacGyver back in action, series regulars Dana Eclar and Bruce McGill are sorely missed (even MacGyver's iconic Swiss army knife has a limited role). Of the two films, Lost Treasure of Atlantis is the most fun, a cheerfully cheesy Indiana Jones-style romp in which MacGyver is paired with his former archaeology professor (an over-the-top Brian Blessed) to find the eponymous trove. This film is certainly at a disadvantage budget-wise, but the finale is no less wacky than Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. Trail to Doomsday is a somewhat darker affair that ups the dramatic stakes when a friend of MacGyver is assassinated and his daughter kidnapped. The climax is classic MacGruber--oops, I mean MacGyver--with our hero desperately racing the clock to defuse a nuclear bomb as an automated voice timer counts down the seconds to detonation. There are no extras, but having these two films is a nice bonus for fans of the series and one of television's most offbeat action heroes. --Donald Liebenson

Format: DVD
I'm surprised to see these movies getting 5 star reviews. While it's nice that they're finally going to be available on DVD (outside of the complete series boxed set), I really don't think these are 5-star quality movies.

The first of the two movies, "Lost Treasure Of Atlantis" feels pretty similar to the Season 5 opener, "Legend Of The Holy Rose." In other words, it feels kind of like a poor man's version of Indiana Jones. This time, Mac and his buddies are searching for the sunken city of Atlantis. Two main problems bog this movie down-- a noticeably low budget, and Brian Blessed. I think the episode got a bit too ambitious for its budget, causing some of the special effects to be painfully bad. And as for Brian Blessed, well, his character is just incredibly loud and annoying throughout. I think he's supposed to be funny, but he fails miserably. Still, it's an fairly enjoyable adventure, and if you just consider another Mac episode (rather than a "movie") you probably won't be disappointed, but you aren't likely to be thrilled, either.

The second movie, "Trail To Doomsday" feels a lot darker, grittier and is clearly aimed at a slightly older audience than "Atlantis". Actually, truth be told, it feels more like a random movie that just happens to star Richard Dean Anderson, rather than like a true MacGyver adventure. The tone is just so different from the tone of the tv series. That's not entirely a bad thing, since I think this will appeal a bit more to an older audience, but it's still jarring. One thing that baffled me a bit about this movie, though, is why they didn't really include any MacGyer-isms.

I have been a MacGyver Fan (Or 'Mac Fan') for close to 5 or 6 years (Back when I first saw the series on the TVLand channel.) I LOVED it! I had loved things from the 1980's anyway so this was great! I thought that RICHARD DEAN ANDERSON was perfect for the role the more I watched it! So, when I found out that MacGyver Complete Season sets were hitting the stores, I was ecstatic with excitment! And so, as you can imagine, I purchased ALL the Season sets as they were gradually released between JANUARY 25th, 2005 (First Season) to OCTOBER 24th, 2006 (Final Season)! I'd known that 'MacGyver - The TV Movies' had come 2 years after the end of the regular 'MacGyver' TV Series, I think even before The Complete Final Season had been released onto DVD. I knew they both had aired in 1994, all that. So, naturally I thought since 'MacGyver - The Complete Final Season' consisted of only 14 episodes (13 for the Final Season, 1 supposed for The Sixth Season) They (Paramount) would logically include 'MacGyver - The TV Movies'! I'm sorry to say they did not. So, close to a year later , Paramount released 'MacGyver - The Complete Series' on OCTOBER 16th, 2007. That set did include The TV Movies on a brand-new bonus disc. Because of the cool, but somewhat poor packaging, the rare 'TV Movies' disc was jounced around inside, causing minor scratches. But now.... thanks to the new 'TV Movies' release on June 15th, 2010, they will be released on a Single Disc in a regular DVD 'keep case'. I've a sneaking thought that Paramount is releasing this because a 'Mac' theatrical film is in the works. I'm sorry, but I disagree with the previous person to review this....people who purchased 'The Complete Series' set just for the 'TV Movies' didn't lose.Read more ›

We MacGyver fans waited patiently for nearly three years for the separate dvd release of the two MacGyver tv movies from back in 1994.........the wait was well worth it ! The final Season 7 of the MacGyver tv series was released back in 2007, and the the tv movies were only available in the series boxset released sometime later.......thanks to Paramount for the separate release of the MacGyver tv movies on a single, separate dvd .....the movies are as good as the tv series episodes !

I am a huge MacGyver fan and I was quite excited to see that they finally put the TV Movies out for separate purchase. For those that don't know, many of us bought each season as it became available and then, after Season 7, we found out the only way you could get the TV Movies was to buy the whole package (i.e. all the seasons together)! Needless to say, many were not happy.

I am very happy to see that they finally put these two gems out on a separate DVD. I give the DVD 4 stars because, as usual, they didn't put any extras at all on the disc. However, the two TV Movies are awesome. I am admittedly bias, however. MacGyver forever!

This dvd was done after the series ended. It has a different feel to it and both movies are based in London (what was with that). There is no reference to The Phoenix Foundation or his past life.

I was a little disappointed with the movies, although seeing RDA in action is always great. Still any fan would want it as part of the collection.

MacGyver: The TV Movies

What better way of finishing off a macgyver collection than by these movies? Should we have another macgyver with Murdoc in it? For some people this bored the pants off of them. I know as I had a party with us watching only the episodes with Macgyver and Murdoc in it. How bout Pete who is in more than 100 episodes or Jack who is in 14 episodes?

One of my favourite episodes was Macgyver on a treasure hunt. And yes you get 90 minutes of macgyver on a treasure hunt in 'The treasure of Lost Atlantis'.

The other movie is just as good or nearly as good. You see, in the next movie, Macgyver is on the run, as he gets framed for a crime he didn't commit. Sorta like the movie the Fugitive or the 2nd season of Prison break. So you get 90 minutes of him on the run from the police which is sorta unique.

You'll love this even more if like me you have an interest in economics or politics. In this movie their is a 1 or 2 minute debate, about whether communism is real, if their are a few people who fund communism, making a profit from the people at the bottom. Sorta like the book, "The creature from Jekyll Island".

So yes, I was very thrilled with these movies, and wasn't disappointed at all. And neither will those, who I bored the pants off of at my Macgyver vs Murdoc party.
