Editorial Reviews

Setting Mel Gibson on a sure path to superstardom, this highly acclaimed "crazy collide-o-scope"(Newsweek) of highway mayhem "cinematically defined the postapocalyptic landscape" (TV Guide). Featuring eye-popping stunts that are "electrifying and very convincing" (Variety) and "an authentically nihilistic spirit" (The Village Voice), Mad Max is "pure cinematic poetry" (Time). In the ravaged near future, a savage motorcycle gang rules the road. Terrorizing innocent civilians while tearing up the streets, the ruthless gang laughs in the face of a police force hell-bent on stopping them. But they underestimate one officer: Max Rockatansky (Gibson). And when the bikers brutalize Max's best friend and family, they send him into a mad frenzy that leaves him with only one thing left in the world to live for revenge!

I've been a fan of "Mad Max" since seeing it in the theater in 1980, and I pre-ordered this Blu-ray as soon as it was announced. The movie itself has been reviewed extensively elsewhere, so my review will cover, briefly, the Blu-ray disc only. I played it on a JVC XVBP11 Blu-ray Player and watched it on a Panasonic TC-L32X2 32-Inch 720p LCD HDTV and, more recently, on a Panasonic VIERA TC-P42S30 42-Inch 1080p Plasma HDTV.

720p Comments:

Overall it looks very dark. They didn't digitally correct any of the color errors (that is, spots in the movie where the film has color damage--it's really obvious after Max drags himself back to the car). The color is richer than on the DVD; skin tones look accurate, but the clouds look pinkish. And it's grainy, but still clearer than ever. You can actually read the graffiti on the high-fatality road sign, and read all the port rules on the beach sign. It's going to be a treasure trove for costumers and prop makers! The BD is definitely an improvement over the DVD in terms of clarity, but the price of that clarity seems to be all the visual noise that's now visible. (In many of the scenes where open blue sky is the backdrop, the sky tends to flicker.) I checked some scenes on the DVD and the color shifting and noise are there, too--it's just not as noticeable as on the BD. I suspect it's the very same source print.

I have had this movie on just about every home video format since Betamax .
This is as good a picture as you will get on this title , unless they restore it IMO ...
What also really stands out is that we get the original actors voices , not the dubbed USA
version ...A real treat and a ground breaking movie !!
Since I bought this again , I consider it a must own !!

Yes it may be "bare bones" compared to newer blu-ray releases(this isn't critereon), but this version rocks. I've seen mad max probably 102 times starting on VHS as a kid, and i'm just noticing all the details (badge numbers, signs, brands, etc) i've never seen in any of the other releases. Picture quality to me is awesome (just noticed the Nightrider has a small tattoo on one of his toes). Thats how much detail you'll see. I don't see any fan of the road warrior or mad max being disappointed by this. As mentioned in other reviews, the superior australian audio track is on by default which after seeing the special edition release from a few years back is the way to watch it. I watched a few times through with the sub-titles on just to catch some of their slang/colloquialism's. I really didn't notice any issues with color or noise in the movie. Everything was just very sharp on a 2009 1080P 27" dell IPS PC monitor. I don't have hi-def audio running from my PC so I can't comment on the HD sound, otherwise everything was great. Per the product description the DVD is an actual seperate disc unlike HD-DVD releases that put the DVD on one side of the HD-DVD disc. So you basically get 2 copies albeit one that is SD. If you're looking for the truely objective review, I'd check out dvdbeaver dot com for their eventual review.

This is probably Mel Gibson's first film. A film he's done while he was in his 20's. There is no doubt that he would become a great star in his native Australia, but this film launched him as an international movie star. Especially since they released Mad Max 2 which was universally released as "The Road Warrior." And "The Road Warrior" is one of my Top Ten favorite films of the 1980's.

Sure, Mad Max has some of that cheesy seventies style, but it definitely introduced us to a new kind of nameless hero which became the common theme of all upcoming action films even being made today.

"Mad Max" is that one film, being over 30 years old, that can still be loved and cherished by people even less than 20 years old today. This film is a classic in the "action hero" dramas for movie lovers who enjoy building a respectable movie library amongst their own home theatre.

Mel Gibson first got noticed in America through the 3 "Mad Max" films although this original never came to the U.S. until after "Mad Max 2" or "Road Warrior" as it was known in the U. S., screened. While that movie was a clichéd game changer, the original has its charm as well. Produced on a non-existent budget, this Australian film is set in a futuristic style of dust, poverty, lawlessness that we have now come to expect. The bad guys are just road marauders who exist to create havoc. The good guys are the cops (Mel) who are out to bring peace to the countryside. The movie is beautifully shot and directed, especially given the money they clearly didn't have. There's no CGI here. All the stunts are real stunt men and the driving sequences are first rate. Sure there's not much of a plot, but all hell breaks loose when Max comes back in the sequel. Stay tuned.
