Horrid
3 October 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This 16 and 42 second featurette on Mel Gibson's early years can be found on Side B of MGM's Special Edition of the movie "Msd Msx". It interviews people who taught him in school, his first screen-role in"Summer City", as well as "Tim", and of course "Mad Max". Coming of as a very short and VERY dry sub-par A&E type documentary. Better then the other "special" feature on the DVD, the atrocious "The Film Phenomenon", but NOT by much at all. I'm quite mad actually. A classic movie deserves at the VERY least adequate extras one would hope. But nope, not in this case. My advice is never watch any of the extras on this DVD... EVER and shave yourself from tedious banality.

My Grade: D-
