    Good movies not so good bluray quality

    These movies are great for its time, and I enjoy them now! I won't review the the story but more so the package. There are really no bonus features. It doesn't bother me too much but I sometimes look forward to getting that extra content. My biggest complaint is the quality. Granted it is better than its original format and it does look decent and sometimes good, I feel like there was a lot of laziness. The first movie had good quality. The second started off good, and it had shots here and there that looked like dvd quality. Sometimes there were moments that were grainy, especially scenes at night. The third was the worst quality. It felt like a dvd and was often grainy. I still enjoy watching them and the quality doesn't bother me too much. I just get high expectations for video/sound when watching blurays. My setup is a Samsung 55" led tv with monster gold plated hdmi cables.

    Stylish packaging for the first 3 films

    This box set includes the first 3 Mad Max movies on blu-ray: Mad Max (1979), Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior (1981), and Mad Max: Beyond Thunderdome (1985). The packaging for this set is a tin box housing a regular blu-ray case, which contains the movies across 3 discs. The tin case is nice, but it doesn't have the title printed on the side (the traditional blu-ray case inside does, however). Despite their age, these films hold up pretty well on blu-ray…but don't expect much in terms of special features here. In the wake of the new Fury Road sequel, I recommend re-watching these classics–and this is the best way to do so for a reasonable price.

    I picked this up because I wanted to see Fury Road but haven't seen the originals in over 10 years. Anyways, I was surprised by how well they held up after all these years. It's nice seeing old movies where stunts and effects were real instead of just blue/green screens and everything being a digital wash. The sequences were thrilling and the action chaotic. Just the way these movies are meant to be. If you're an action film fan, this series is a must-have in your collection.

    The first movie will always be a classic. If you like fast cars motorcycles and never say die attitude then youl like this Movie. Still a blast to watch. The second is also great with impressive car chases and non stop action. The last Movie Beyond Thunder dome is largely forgettable. They could have left it out and I'd have still bought the set. Mad Max and the Road Warrior though are cult classics. There still worth watching and I enjoyed them.

    I really like the steel case on this set and thoroughly enjoy the movies. I think a little more effort could have gone into creating the packaging though. I like steel book sets and thought that is what this was but it is just the BluRay packaging in a metal tin. It would have been nice to have gotten digital copies of the movies as well. Other than that I like the collection and enjoyed the films. Great sound and video quality.

    This is the way to enjoy the Mad Max trilogy. I upgraded finally from VHS to Blu Ray on this particular movie set and have others I need to take care of. I was pleased that the copy of Mad Max (original) can be watched in the original theatrical dubbed version via sound settings or original audio track made available in the 25th anniversary edition. It comes with a nice aluminum case. A must have for any Mad Max fan.

    It's just the 3 movies in it's normal blue plastic blu-ray case. No special steelbook, it's just a container. One that doesn't even fit easily on my shelf. Maybe it would be cool to hang on a wall? Not really sure what they were thinking here. 4/5 stars for the movies being awesome, loses a star for not being a cool steelbook and just a container for the normal packaging.

    This is a tin case (not a steelbook) containing a standard blu-ray case containing three blu-rays (one for each movie, naturally.) There is nothing special about the tin--in fact, it is a little annoying as it does not fit properly on a shelf--but in some cases this may be cheaper than buying all three blu-rays separately.
