Horrible retrospective on a classic that deserves MUCH better
3 October 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This 25 and a half minute retrospective of "Mad Max" can be found on Side B of MGM's Special Edition of the aforementioned movie. It features interviews with historians, film critics, some of the behind the camera crew. What none of the actors??? Heaven forbid the makers of this documentary go the extra mile and try to get at least one or two of the actors (I know Gibson would have been stretching feasibly, but how bout ANY of the other actors??). To add insult to injury this is FAR from informative. Even the common person is likely to know everything in here. A waste of disc space, this one sucked, A classic movie DESERVES MUCH better.

My Grade: F
