5.0 out of 5 stars A truly funny and innovative bond/mission impossible spoof September 12, 2002
I have been trying to get a copy of these movies for at least 15 years now and the fact that it is now coming out on DVD is why I love this format . The movies are a funny spoof of spy movies with amazing action and truly one of a kind gadgets . The series also has a famous villian in every installment , in Mad mission 2 it is the clint eastwood character from the good ,the bad ,the ugly (or at least a lookalike) . In mad mission 3 it is a sean connery lookalike as james bond although Peter Graves (the real one) appears as his mission impossible character . In Mad mission 4 it is the german villian from Raiders Of The Lost Ark ( the one whose hand was burnt by the medallion and who suffers a similar fate in this movie). These movies are for kids and adults alike and especially for fans of spys and gadgets . I am buying this collection as soon as it becomes available.

4.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining Hong Kong Action/Comedies May 10, 2009
One day, I got the itch. The itch to buy a box set of films I have never heard of. I enjoy Hong Kong films so I decided to give the Mad Mission collection a shot. I can tell you it's not money wasted.

The box set contains the first four films in the Mad Mission series (Sadly the fifth film Mad Mission V: The Taracatta Hit is not present) with Mad Mission 4: You Never Die Twice being exclusive to this box set.

Apparently these films are better known in Asia as Aces Go Places and are extremely popular over there (should be since they made 5 films). These films are an interesting mish-mash of genre's. First of all they are action films with amazing (but sometimes too staged) stunts. Second they are comedies with slapstick. Third they are spy spoofs making multiple references to James Bond and Mission: Impossible. These make for an incredibly fun time.

The main characters of the film is a bumbling bald headed cop that makes friends with a high class jewel thief. All the main characters are present throughout the films.

Out of all the films, I found the first film to be the strongest (as usual with film series). It just mixed the action and comedy perfectly. The second film is more of the same. The third film (directed by Tsui Hark, famous for his Once Upon a Time in China epics with Jet Li) takes a little of a nose dive as it just gets a little too goofy. Fans of James Bond will get a kick out of this entry though as it does have cameos by Jaws of The Spy Who Loved Me and Moonraker and Oddjob of Goldfinger. The fourth film does the complete opposite as famed Hong Kong director Ringo Lam takes the series in a dark, serious direction.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing, Funny and a Classic June 4, 2014
Verified Purchase
Clearly this is a not so serious take on James Bond classic films. For the price this is a steal!

I had been looking for these movies for a while, as I saw them as a child. These are great action comedy movies. The packaging is also very good.

1.0 out of 5 stars A poor box set October 16, 2003
By A Customer
I bought and returned this box set. The information is incorrect as the movies in this set are actually dubbed. As well, it's not complete for there were five movies in the series.
