Product Description

Amazon.ca

Just as Monty Python and the Holy Grail made it difficult to ever again watch anything involving Camelot with a straight face, so, too, has SNL's MacGruber made it near impossible to keep a straight face as Richard Dean Anderson MacGyvers himself out of a life-threatening predicament using common objects such as a lighter or an improbably accessible tennis racket. This long-awaited single disc contains the two 1994 made-for-TV MacGyver movies previously only available as part of the pricey Complete Series set. While it's fun to see the resourceful MacGyver back in action, series regulars Dana Eclar and Bruce McGill are sorely missed (even MacGyver's iconic Swiss army knife has a limited role). Of the two films, Lost Treasure of Atlantis is the most fun, a cheerfully cheesy Indiana Jones-style romp in which MacGyver is paired with his former archaeology professor (an over-the-top Brian Blessed) to find the eponymous trove. This film is certainly at a disadvantage budget-wise, but the finale is no less wacky than Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. Trail to Doomsday is a somewhat darker affair that ups the dramatic stakes when a friend of MacGyver is assassinated and his daughter kidnapped. The climax is classic MacGruber--oops, I mean MacGyver--with our hero desperately racing the clock to defuse a nuclear bomb as an automated voice timer counts down the seconds to detonation. There are no extras, but having these two films is a nice bonus for fans of the series and one of television's most offbeat action heroes. --Donald Liebenson

no violence or very little indeed, and if you like science, action and intrigue all well mixed into one, well this is it
and I simply love this guy (Richard Dean Anderson) who was to become general Jack Oneall in stargate, so anyone who wants to forget about reality for a while without to much stress...he's the man yep that's all folks lolllll
almost for everybody

4.0 out of 5 stars They almost got it right Jan. 13 2014

I remember watching those movies on TV years ago, which is why I bought the DVDs. The movies themselves are fine - the only reason I didn't give 5 stars is because there are only to chapters per movie, meaning you can only skip to the middle. :P

2.0 out of 5 stars I really wanted to like these movies July 22 2013
By cwr5544

I really wanted to like these movies- but they are really not good. At all. They are both executed in a way that is so fundamentally different (direction, and writing) that, as a fan of MacGyver, I really don't want to acknowledge their existence. I now know why they are not widely sold.
