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

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.

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

I you liked MacGyver, you'll enjoy these 2 movies. Both films had interesting plots and were well done for 90's made for TV. A gritting character in one of the films was the only negative my brother said, as we watched the double-header of MacGyver. This series and the character has actually made an impression upon film and the way of life we now have. Several films since have referred to it and in out day to day life; when you hear someone "Macgyvered" it or we'll just have to "MacGyver" a way out. Worth the watch on both and next time the re-run shows up watch it.

I found the post-TV series movies weren't anywhere near as good as the first few seasons of shows. They're not that imaginative or powerful in acting or plot. It's an okay movie, worth purchase at a fair price.

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
