Mel Gibson's dystopian sci-fi films get the Blu-ray box set treatment for the first time ever, just in time for Father's Day. 1985's "Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome" makes its Blu-ray debut and will also be available as a single release along with "The Road Warrior."[/i]
[b]Mad Max (1979)[/b] - 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 bent on stopping them. But they underestimate one officer: Max Rockatansky (Mel 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!
[b]The Road Warrior (1982)[/b] - In action movie annals, few compare with this full-throttle epic of speed and carnage that rockets you into a dreamlike landscape where the post-nuclear future meets the mythological past. More simply, it's also one of the most mind-blowing stunt movies ever made. Under the direction of George Miller (Babe, Happy Feet), Mel Gibson first made his mark on movie history as heroic loner Max, who drives the roads of outback Australia in an unending search for gasoline. Arrayed against him are the bizarre warriors commanded by The Humungus. With The Road Warrior on your side, screen action doesn't get any better than this.
[b]Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome (1985)[/b] - Mel Gibson stars in his third go-round as the title hero who takes on the barbarians of the post-nuclear future - and this time becomes the savior of a tribe of lost children. Music superstar Tina Turner steals what's left of the screen as Aunt Entity, a power-mad dominatrix determined to use Max to tighten her stranglehold on Bartertown. Directors George Miller and George Oglivie deliver another rousing apocalypse-on-wheels and one of the best movie fight scenes ever as Max and the gladiatorial Blaster face off with maces, chainsaws and anything not nailed down inside Thunderdome. Watch Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome and you'll agree with Tuner's hit soundtrack single that “We Don't Need Another Hero.”
Special features include multiple language options, featuring English, Spanish, French, German, Turkish, Arabic, Slovenian, Serbian, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, and Russian subtitles, some audio language tracks including both Castellan and Latino Spanish, as well as Czech, Hungarian, Polish and Russian. Some of the subtitles available, however, will vary based on the title viewed. There’s also a trailer for each of the titles, and some special featurettes as well depending on the movie. The “Mad Max” volume, for example, will include an audio commentary track and a featurette on “Mad Max: The Film Phenomenon.” “The Road Warrior” will offer an introduction by Leonard Maltin.
The Mad Max set includes featurettes and commentary tracks on the first two films and nothing on Thunderdome (not even a Tina Turner music-only track.) Unfortunately is there no teaser material for the next installment, [b]Mad Max 4: Fury Road[/b] featuring [b]Tom Hardy[/b] as Max.
“Mad Max Trilogy” not only has value for its historical features–”Mad Max” was actually a record holder for a while–but also for its impressive portrayal of a world gone mad when the rule of law fails. “Mad Max” is a standard and a touchstone for generations; passing up on this one isn’t a good idea at all. While some parts may not pass muster, there is almost certain to be something in here for most every taste in action fare.[/i]
The collection will sell for $49.99 SRP on Blu-ray Disc, however [b]WarnerBros.com[/b] an [b]Amazon.com[/b] sites currently has the boxset on sale for around $35 dollars.
