A decent BD release, but room for improvement Oct. 5 2010
By Curtis G - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray
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.

1080p Comments:

Before I owned the 1080p plasma, I thought that having all that additional resolution would just make the bad qualities of the transfer that much more obvious. I was wrong. Frankly, it looks pretty amazing. There was less flickering of the sky, and print damage was much less obvious. The film still appears grainy, and overall the color is somewhat dull, but it IS a 30-year-old low-budget movie--a lot of which seems to have been shot on overcast days.

Additional Disc Comments:

The disc menu is odd: The footage is from the movie but the sound is sourced from who-knows-where (most of it is not from the movie, and doesn't even really match the visuals). And would someone tell me why they insist on including the abominable American dub in every release? (The only redeeming feature of the American dub--aside from its comedy value--is that some engine sounds were beefed up, and the characters' voices don't get lost in the mix as they do in the original.) The default audio is the original Australian track in 5.1 DTS HD. There's also a mono mix for you traditionalists.

The DVD included in the set is the exact same one from the Mad Max (Special Edition) DVD. (I compared them and the markings/numbers are identical.) Compared to the BD, it now looks a little washed-out. The chapter breaks appear to be the same for both discs.

Conclusion:

The question is, is this BD release worth the money? Well, if you're a die-hard completist or a hard-core fan like I am, the answer is yes. If you have a 1080p TV, then the answer is YES! If you're looking for the definitive Blu-ray release of Mad Max that's the best it's ever going to get, I'd say wait (or buy used). Maybe someday we'll get a loving, caring, comprehensive digital restoration by someone who doesn't care just about the sales numbers. But who knows how long that might take?

Must have Mad Max edition Nov. 14 2010
By Robert W. Rascoe - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
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 !!

finally on blu-ray Oct. 5 2010
By MattM (me mums says i'ma genius) - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
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.

It comes with new AND original artwork! March 15 2015
By Mike - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray
Someone gavw this 1 star becuz.of new cover art. Boy were they wrong!!! This is a COLLECTORS edition from SCREAM FACTORY. which means the ORIGINAL artwork is on the REVERSE SIDE OF SLIP. u can choose new art or old art. This is to the guy who said one star becuz.of new art work. Gotta do ur research first dude. So calm down. It has old artwork as well. Scream factory never disappointed anyone. They are the only true company that really puts in a huge amount of effort in releasing hidden gems and mainstream films. Scream factory is realeasing mad max yes. BUT also GHOULIES/GHOULIES 2 blu ray double pack in april. AND invaders from mars remake. AND scarecrows. AND stigmata. AND wichery/ghosthouse double blu ray. Oh and cant forget about sleepaway camp 2 and 3 in june. If ur reading this and new to scream factory go to there website and look at all the movies they have released past 2 years. And what they have coming out next few months. Its a HORROR COLLECTORS DREAM COMPANY! buy them off there website u can get them early sometimes. And some films come with posters of that movie ur buying! Or amazon and bestbuy.com sells there movies. I buy mine at v-stock in the mall. Frys also sells scream factory film. Just had to say my part on regards to a guy giving a film 1 star becuz he didnt have the WHOLE story. And to say how much ass scream factory kicks!!!!

This is the movie that introduced me to the awesomeness of action movies of the 1980's May 20 2012
By Rykre - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray
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.
