3.0 out of 5 stars Remarkable movies, unremarkable box set, June 4, 2013
This review is from: Mad Max Trilogy (Mad Max / The Road Warrior / Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome) [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
So, the Mad Max Trilogy, are easily some of the my favorite movies ever!

This boxset is unfortunately quite lackluster. The Road Warrior has already been released, back in 2007 and is basically identical to the new release, with the only difference, being a slight minimal increase in bitrate. in Mad Max is basically a reissue of the blue ray release from a few months ago, with new packaging. It is nice to finally have Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome on Blu Ray, but it has zero special features. A making of movie, or at least some production/press photos included would have been nice. Nothing..... If you don't already own the movies on blu ray then yes, pick this collection up. If you do already have the first two movies, save yourself 20 dollars and just buy Thunderdome by itself for 13 dollars to complete your collection. You would think Warner would have stepped up, and release a collection, that reflects the legendary vision of George Miller.

All I can hope is that when Fury Road comes out, they will finally release an ultimate collection, full of bonuses for the most dedicated fans! These movies deserve more!

I agree totally Clinton. This trilogy deserves MUCH more than this junk. The films are awesome (Mad Max 2 being my fav) but Warner just slapped this together in five minutes. Have never been totally satisfied with the transfers of the first two onto blu ray. Plus since Road Warrior/Mad Max 2 first appeared so many years ago, high def restorations are a big thing. The original negatives must still be around for all three. A 4K restoration would be amazing! And the lack of special features (I don't consider commentary anything special these days) is truly a shame. There should have been a fourth disc just with bonus stuff.
And I was looking forwaed to this set getting released. But once I saw the back, I knew I would have to pass.
This is just as disgusting as Fox blowing it by not remastering the Die Hard films for their second box set. But that's a whole different story...
Thanks for the review of Mad Max Trilogy. I may consider getting this if I can get it below twenty bucks. Sad day for us Mad max fans.

I agree. I can only hope that when Fury Road comes out, Warner will make a mega collection, finally giving us fans of the Bronze, the collections we deserve. Well, Fox isn't all bad, they did release an amazing ALIEN collection.

That's a shame, maybe someday there will be a documentary made about the series to make for the lack of anything ever. Looking forward to Thunderdome in HD though.

There's a doco on MM2 called "The Chase Continues," and an episode of "Les Enfants du Rock" did a behind-the-scenes for MM3, but yeah, the lack of any official documentary is pretty lame. http://seri-z.blogspot.fr/2011/01/mad-max-3-les-enfants-du-rock.html

You're forgetting one thing: "The Road Warrior" is also now presented in DTS-HD 5.1 Master Audio. The original Blu-ray was limited to Dolby 5.1.

they probably did it that way because when MM4 Fury Road is finally released, then they will make another set like it with the added features, this set is probably just to wet everyone's whistle for now.
