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.Read more ›
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!
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.
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.
