Mad Max [4KUHD] [Blu-ray]
About this deal
They are escaping a Citadel tyrannized by the Immortan Joe, from whom something irreplaceable has been taken. Although we've been blessed with a new souped-up HDR video of the beloved actioner, Kino Lorber's UHD release rumbles and revs its engine with the same trio of generally pleasing if only slightly troubled DTS-HD MA soundtracks. When several of them take his appearance as a sign and go off into the desert, he follows them back to the town. Hardy does his usual mumbling once again spending the majority of a movie with his face covered but he does bring a jitteriness to the character making him feel unpredictable and indeed possibly mad. Naturally, daylight sequences expose minute characteristics and marks in the rock formations, and individual pebbles of the dusty landscape are distinctly clear from other tiny rocks and from the thick clouds of dust while in the distance, mountain and hill tops are plainly discrete with visible jagged edges.
This Ultra HD Blu-ray disc arrives with a strong 4K video presentation, but unfortunately, it also appears to be plagued with a couple of noticeable artifacts and doesn't quite have the pop we'd expected from the new format, bringing it down a couple notches. The dialogue is fairly limited, but still clean and clearly replicated in the center channel, while the rest of the track just sits on top of you and pummels the listener to death with a dynamic range that shows no mercy and takes no prisoners.However, there is an ingenious theme brewing beneath all the bedlam, as if deliberately contradicting Jean Baudrillard's sentiment of a modernity with more information but less meaning. The native 4K image on Mad Max The Road Warrior is a huge improvement, very well detailed, bright, vivid colouring, almost ‘hot’, and strong blacks, while the Dolby Atmos track is immersive, detailed with good effects and strong bass.

There are definitely more oranges and splashes of colors on the girls outfits, but this is not a leaps and bounds transfer by any means. When the wife and child of cop Max (Mel Gibson) are murdered by one of the gangs, he sets out to get revenge.
Digitally there are no compression issues and the original source is clean and clear; grain is fine and maintains a filmic glow.
Max may be understood as the plot's central figure, but this is actually Furiosa's show all the way, and Theron is a beautifully furious heroine that can tussle with any man. The road to Valhalla is shiny and chrome on Ultra HD Blu-ray, but it’s also a treacherous and unforgiving journey with a few hazardous obstacles and mishaps along the way. Not quite changing the genre for good, but certainly setting it alight, the film was such a success that Hollywood came knocking and suddenly there was more money for Max to continue his journey.
Don't get me wrong, there is plenty of CGI, as the compositing works to get the landscape to looks so stylistic utilized a lot of CGI, but the action stunts and fight scenes was 100% practical, and it shows! There is some CGI but it only adds to the eye candy and there is still some jaw dropping stunt work; the sandstorm sequence is a major highlight and arguably the most memorable of the film. Fury on Four Wheels (HD, 23 min) — A detailed and extensive look at designing the vehicles, the thought process and influence that went into certain cars, and individual impressions. The story might seem familiar, biker gangs brought down by an ex-cop with nothing left to lose, but that is because it’s been copied, homaged and lampooned ever since, but there is something visceral about the original; the raw, uncompromising way in which everything is done for real, genuine destruction and brutal depictions give the film its power.Dialogue is natural sounding and whilst held to the frontal array is given the odd moment of directionality but unfortunately is occasionally a bit low in the mix. Strictly limited, each Cine Edition release comes in special packaging with added bonus content exclusive to these versions.
There he becomes a gladiator and gets dumped in the desert where he is rescued by a band of feral orphans who have been looking for help for years. In his third go-round as the title hero Gibson takes on the barbarians of the post-nuclear future – and this time becomes the saviour of a tribe of lost children.The classic actioner has never looked as good as it does in this native 4K transfer, showing well-defined lines in each muscle car and motorcycle, exposing every scratch, dent and bit of rust. As in the previous films, our reluctant antihero has already given up hope of a new civilization, a lone scavenger driven purely by survival, and Hardy does a marvelous job stepping into the role that made Mel Gibson a worldwide star. However, there is some improved visibility within the shadows and darkest corners but again, not by much.
